Published

on

The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has taken a step to reclaim a House of Representatives seat from Hon. Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi (Wakilin Birni), the member representing Bauchi Local Government Federal Constituency at the National Assembly.

In a letter signed on 19th February, 2021 by the National Secretary of the party, Mr. Tunde Alli which was sighted by our correspondent, the National Headquarters of the party had constituted a three-person litigation committee which was mandated to lawfully reclaim the seat from the Yakubu Shehu Abdullahi who early this month announced his defection from the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The committee comprises the Bauchi State Chairman of the party in person of Barr. Ahmed Umar Farouk (Gwadabe), Barr. (Mrs) Juliet Anyata and Barr. Sa’ad Ibrahim Kura.

In another development, the former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) and one of the stakeholders of the PRP in person of Professor Attahiru Muhammadu Jega has stated that the PRP is a better alternative to APC and PDP, the two leading parties in the country.

Professor Attahiru Jega made this known on Monday, during a stakeholders’ interactive session of the party in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State.

He revealed that with the new trend in the PRP and at the pace at which mobilisation was going on across the country, he was optimistic that PRP would provide a better alternative to Nigerians.

PRP: INEC disgraces Sule Bello, says Falalu Bello remains National Chairman

Published

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disgraced one Prof. Sule Bello who approached the commission’s headquarters in Abuja and introduced himself as the interim National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).

Reliable sources from the commission had narrated that Sule Bello went to the commission’s headquarters last week claiming that the stakeholders of the PRP had sacked Alhaji Falalu Bello from the position of PRP National Chairman and appointed him as the interim National Chairman of the party.

The top officials of the INEC did ask Sule Bello that who were the stakeholders and their respective positions. The question that Sule Bello couldn’t answer. They also asked him whether the PRP Constitution empowered the so-called stakeholders to remove or appoint the National Chairman of the party. The question that Sule Bello still couldn’t answer. In addition, the management of INEC asked Sule Bello whether they invited the INEC or had a presence of INEC officials during the so-called stakeholders meeting. The question that Sule Bello couldn’t answer again.

The INEC management finally informed Sule Bello that the commission is a serious institution that does not entertain frivolity or stupidity from anybody. It affirmed that Alhaji Falalu Bello remains the National Chairman of the party considering the fact that the commission did not receive any communication from the PRP that indicated a change of leadership in the party.

Our correspondent gathered that the INEC management had warned Sule Bello to stop parading himself as the National Chairman of the PRP henceforth.

Angry with the questions asked by the INEC management and unsavoury treatment received from them, Sule Bello stormed out of the INEC headquarters in a very sad mood.

Sule Bello, who went to the Commission in company of one lanky anonymous person, has been parading himself as the interim National Chairman of the PRP despite several warnings from relevant authorities and persons admonishing him to desist from such act as it is tantamount to a criminal impersonation, a crime that may land him in jail.

A further check by our correspondent on the INEC website had shown that Alhaji Falalu Bello, OFR is still the National Chairman of the PRP while Mr. Babatunde Alli is the National Secretary of the party.

Alhaji Falalu Bello has become the National Chairman of the PRP in September, 2018, following the step down of late Malam Balarabe Musa from the position.

A 1978 Law graduate from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Falalu Bello started his Legal career with the Kaduna State Government as Magistrate II and subsequently moved to Northern Nigeria Investment Company Limited as Senior Executive/Acting Company Secretary.

He was later appointed Kaduna State Government Commissioner for Trade and Industry. He was appointed Managing Director/CEO of Habib Nigeria Bank Limited in 1994 until 1998 when he was appointed Managing Director/CEO of Intercity Bank Plc. He resigned as Vice Chairman/Managing Director in 2001. In 2001, he was appointed Managing Director of Nigerian Agricultural Development Bank Limited.

Alhaji Falalu Bello holds the National honour of the Officer of the Federal Republic (OFR) and the traditional title of Danmasanin Zazzau.

The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has urged Nigerians to use the period of the holy Ramadan to ardently pray for the nation as well as live in peace with one another as instructed by the teachings of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (SWA).

This was contained in a statement signed by the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Falalu Bello and made available to news on Monday in Abuja.

According to the statement, “the party observes that the Holy month of Ramadan is a period of retreat; retreat from unnecessary worldly pleasures to spiritual introspection; a retreat from self-indulgence to devotion and dedication. The Holy month of Ramadan is also a great occasion for human race, particularly Nigerians to seek the blessings and favours of the Almighty God.”

The statement further disclosed that “it is a common knowledge that Nigeria has been bedeviled by security, social and economic challenges, among others. Hence, this Holy month of Ramadan is a divine opportunity for the leaders and the led to fast and fervently supplicate for national unity, peace, prosperity and stability of our nation.

“Also, the PRP urges Nigerians to use the Holy month of Ramadan to resuscitate the values that unite us as compatriots and jettison all divisive proclivities that ruin the configuration of our nation. As citizens of one nation, we need to rejuvenate and rekindle the spirit of peaceful coexistence, forgiveness, magnanimity and tolerance in all our dealings.

“Penultimately, we emphatically call on the ruling government to urgently bring an end to the scourges of kidnappings, banditry, insurgency and other acts of violence in various parts of our country.”
