INEC denies Sule Bello’s claim, says Falalu Bello remains PRP National Chairman

Published

on

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has on Thursday stated that it does not know the existence of someone by the name Sule Bello who claims to be the interim National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).

When contacted by our reporter to know if the Commission is aware of someone by the name Sule Bello who parades himself as the interim National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), the electoral commission responded by saying that they are not aware of that person.

The commission further revealed that the person they know and recognize as the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) is Mallam Falalu Bello, OFR.

According to the commission, it had a meeting with Mallam Falalu Bello and other National Chairmen of political parties few days ago to review the 2019 general elections and see how to ensure the success of 2023 elections. Therefore, according to the commission, anybody parading himself as the National Chairman of the PRP other than Mallam Falalu Bello should be avoided by the general public and dealt with by the relevant authorities.

The INEC added that this should not be a debatable issue considering the fact that the names of PRP leaders and that of other political parties are already on the website of the commission (https://www.inecnigeria.org/party/peoples-redemption-party/) and anybody who claims to be a leader of a political party but his or her name is not on the website is nothing but an impostor that relevant authorities should deal with mercilessly.

The commission had finally advised the general public to regularly check its website to know the leaders of political parties so as to avoid being scammed by impostors.

When our correspondent reached out to one of the PRP leaders to enquire if they are aware that some impostors led by one Sule Bello are parading themselves as interim leaders, the party official revealed that they got the information recently but they would soon take action against the impostors despite the fact that they are busy with the day to day activities of the party.

“Even though we have no time for nonsensical elements and distraction, but we would take appropriate action against these impostors that are certainly sent by the opposition party to cause problem in our dear party, the PRP,” the party official stated.

He finally disclosed that preparations are on top gear for the party to capture power comes 2023.

Kola Abiola, son of late acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election, MKO Abiola, has joined the 2023 Presidential race.

Kola on Thursday, picked the N10 million Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for Presidency.

He received the forms from the National Secretary of the Party, Babatunde Alli, at the PRP’s headquarters in Abuja.

Three aspirants have so far purchased the forms for the presidential ticket of the party. They are Retired Col. Gboluga Mosugu, Mrs Patience Key and Kola Abiola.

Abiola, who kicked against consensus candidacy as contained in the Electoral Act 2022, said that other aspirants of the party, who had so far purchased their forms were also opposed to the method.

He said: “We have two other candidates. We believe in internal party democracy, we are not doing consensus. It is a transparent party, the more candidates we have the better.

“Whoever wins, we will all come together and work for the party and not somebody calling for consensus where someone will step down for another.

“Let’s go and have a competitive environment, it will be transparent and we will uphold internal democracy and be able to have proper democracy.”

Earlier, the party’s national secretary, Alli, said the party had strategised to ensure a rancour-free primary, by allowing delegates to vote for the presidential candidates of their choice at the state levels.

Meanwhile, the PRP has extended sale and return of nomination forms till May 18.

A retired Army Colonel and member of the Peoples Redemption Party, Gboluga Mosugu, has submitted his Expression of Interest and Nomination forms making him eligible to run for the office of the President under the platform of the party.

Mosugu who spoke to pressmen while submitting his forms at the PRP’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, said he took the idea to lead the country very seriously.

He said, “The idea to lead Nigeria right is one that I take seriously. I am aware of the challenges ahead, but challenges are meant to be faced and conquered, and I’m in it for the long run. I am a retired Colonel, and as a soldier, one is always prepared to die for their country if the need arises in the course of duty. I could die for Nigeria.

“After I got the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms, I could have changed my mind that I didn’t want to go further, but I am prepared for the challenge ahead, and there is no fear in my mind.”

Mr Mosugu described the PRP as the most competent party in the country, calling on Nigerians to give their mandate to it in 2023.

Speaking, a retired major general, Anthony Ajemba, said he had known Mr Mosugu for over 50 years. “We met in 1973 as young-boy soldiers at Nigeria Military School, Zaria.”

He described the aspirant as a detribalised Nigerian, saying that if given the opportunity, Mr Mosugu would take the country to greater heights.

“We have come to give him our support. He can deliver this nation. This journey that he has started, by the grace of God, he will end well,” Mr Ajemba said.

The national secretary of the party said the PRP had maintained its ideology as a people-centred party and a movement to defend the defenceless.

Mr Mosugu will have to contend for the PRP presidential ticket with some other aspirants including Kola Abiola son of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993, Moshood Abiola, and Patience Key.
