We won’t allow Kwara to be annexed to South West – Saraki

Published

on

The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has that the people of Kwara state will resist plans by some desperate politicians to annex the state to the south west  using the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidates  in the coming general elections.

Saraki made this known on Tuesday at Bode Saadu, Headquarters of Moro Local Government at the official flag off of the campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said Kwara belongs to Kwara indigenes, adding that all efforts by seasonal politicians to hand it over to their Lagos and Abuja paymasters shall be frustrated.

“This election is not about me or our governorship candidate, Razak Atunwa. It’s about this state, our tradition. Time will tell about whatever we do today.

“We go back to PDP because we need a government that will care for our people, gives jobs to our people. We should not vote a candidate whose DG said’ he does not care, he does not know,” Saraki added.

He therefore appealed to the people of the state, particularly the electorate to forget any differences they may have with all the candidates of the party and vote massively for PDP during the general elections.

Saraki called on the people of the state to reject APC and Buhari that have brought hunger, suffering and starvation to the people of the country.

Speaking in the same vein, the Director-General of PDP Campaign council in Kwara, Prof Abubakar Suleiman described APC as a deceitful party which does not meant well for the people of Kwara state.

According to him, the coming general elections would be between the indigenes of Kwara and non indigenes that want to sell the state to their masters.

“Kwara belong to the North, we will not allow Kwara to be taken away from us to the West.

“Our leader is Dr Bukola Saraki, our President is Abubakar Atiku, our incoming governor is Atunwa.

“Kwara cannot be conquered by Tinubu. Tinubu should stay away from Kwara,” Suleiman said.

Also speaking, Kwara state governor, Abdufatah Ahmed said the flag-off campaign would usher in another PDP government in the state and Nigeria.

“You can all see hunger, poverty in the last three years of APC government. We want to bring in PDP to change the narrative. We shall usher in PDP government in Nigeria and Kwara,” he added.

The state chairman of the PDP, Hon. Kola Shittu said only PDP government will be beneficial to the people of the state and Nigerians in general.

“PDP government will provide jobs for our youths. Many people have decamped to PDP because of our leader’s sincerity and people oriented programmes,” he added.

In his remarks, the PDP Governorship candidate, Abdulrazak Atunwa promised to run a government that would focus on the welfare of the people if elected as the state’s next governor.

He lamented that the APC led federal government denied Kwara youths job placements, adding; “Our government shall provide jobs for them. Women will be empowered”.
