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

Published

on

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 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.

This was contained in a press statement signed by the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Falalu Bello and made available to newsmen on Sunday.

Hence, the PRP considers it pertinent to call on the Muslims nationwide to fervently pray for the nation as they celebrate Eid-ul-Kabir for God’s urgent intervention.

“In addition, we call on the governments at all levels to come up with urgent and proactive strategies that would put an end to the myriad problems of general insecurity, banditry, unemployment, hunger, bad economy, among others.

“Finally, the PRP rejoices with Muslims nationwide at this festive time and wishes them a happy celebration. And as we celebrate, let us all recommit ourselves, individually and collectively, to make Nigeria a safer, equitable, progressive and more egalitarian fatherland for all irrespective of our ethnic, religious and/or cultural plurality,” the statement revealed.
