A Former Kwara Governorship Candidate of the Alternative Party of Nigeria (APN), Dr Muhammed Abubakar Muhammed, has described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), 2023 Kwara north agenda as “dead on arrival.”
Dr. Muhammed who appeared as a guest on SHO PEN TV, ELITE CHAT SHOW, said that the Northern part of the state had a best chance to aggitate for power shift to the zone in 2019.
The former Senior Special Assistant (SSA), on Solid minerals development to Kwara state Governor, hails from Tsaragi in Edu LGA of the State.
According to him, “Kwara North had a best chance to aggitate for power shift to the zone in 2019, Kwara Central governed for 8 years under senator Bukola Saraki, South also governed for another 8 years under the former governor, Abdulfatahi Ahmed, so, following equity and fairness Kwara north should have the opportunity to govern,”
“Why is PDP now deeming their light in Kwara north, Why don’t they give it to us in 2019, we are not fools and we are not to be deceive, Kwara North and Northerners in general are awake, we can see how this present administration has transformed the senatorial district in all sector including, education, mineral resources, infrastructures, health and the likes of Gbugbu market, so things are getting found the way we want it to be in Kwara north.”
He said “In 2019, a lot of talk were in term about Kwara North don’t have a candidate to sell or Kwara North don’t have a well educated individual or Kwara North don’t have the muscle to actually contest for the Governoship position,”
“Going into the story line, Kwara north won election with Sen. Shaaba and both south and central supported north and we won the election that means whosoever the Kwara north is turning up with and with the support of these other two senatorial district, Kwara north will surely have the opportunity to govern.”
Dr. Muhammed described Gov Abdulrazaq has a silent achiever, who has teams of highly skilled professionals working for him and delivering on the dividends of democracy in every sector. “I do call him father of Kwara Northerners because of what he has done in Kwara north in the last three years, we have never had a Governor that has giving it to us this much and we are thanking because if we appreciate the little we will definitely get more.”
“2023 is not the right time for us in Kwara north to start demanding for power, the best option for us is to allow Mall. Abdulrazaq to serve for another 4 years because he is doing tremendously well in every sector. In 2027 kwarans can now decide to give Kwara north the opportunity to govern.”
Dr. Muhammed however, advised Kwarans to see 2023 as an opportunity to use their PVC well by re-electing Gov Abdulrazaq, he noted that it is the citizens right to elect whosoever they want to have as their leader, adding that Gov Abdulrazaq has done his best and will still continue to do it.
