From Goke Ayogun, Ilorin

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Kwara, Comrade Musbau Esinrogunjo has called on the youth to rise up and free Kwara from political and economic bondage.

Esinrogunjo made the call on Sunday at the kick off of the football competition; Esinrogunjo Championship 2018 among youth clubs in Ilorin.

He said the time has come for all the youths in the state to take up the gauntlet and free themselves from a political system that have impoverish them over the years.

Esinrogunjo was the chairmanship candidate for Ilorin West local government in November 18, 2017 LG election.

He called on the youth to start preparing for 2019 elections to put an end to of an age-long political system which he described as oppressive and anti youths of the state.

“The era of using youth for dirty purposes in politics is gone, come 2019, Kwara youths must speak with one voice and free yourselves from government that has reduced you to third class citizens,” he said.

Esinrogunjo said he sponsored the competition to encourage the youths to discover themselves and create political awareness among them.

“This football competition is the most effective way of bringing everybody together irrespective of religious, ethnic and political leanings.

 “The competition is a platform to seal love among us and then press for a common goal of a better future for us”, Esinrogunjo added.

He lamented that their fathers and grandfathers were passive and timid to cry out over the subjugation of the state under the control of one family for decades.

“Our fathers did not separate politics from religion and tradition. So, they played along with an ideology of a family who turns the entire state into an enterprise.

“It has therefore gotten to a point that should begin to sensitize our fellow youths to free this generation of Kwarans from political and economic bondage that our fathers embraced for decades to detriment of all of us,” he said.

16 clubs were taking part in the Esinrogunjo Championship 2018 with the kick-off between Young Anthers FC and Bombay FC that end in 0-1 in favour of Bombay FC.

Achievers FC trashed Mighty Star 3-0 and supreme FC defeated Giwa FC by a lone goal.

Final of the competition will come up on May 5, 2018 at Maracana stadium, Ilorin.

The opening ceremony was witnessed by PDP state Chairman, Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo, publicity Secretary, Dr Rex Olawoye, PDP pioneer chairman in the state, Kunle Sulyman, Dr Amuda Aluko and PDP governorship aspirant, Alhaji Mohammed Ajia-Ibrahim.
