APC: Five women emerge Kwara House candidates as half lose bid to secure re-election tickets
More than half of the present members of the All Progressives Congress-dominated Kwara State House of Assembly, failed to secure re-election tickets at the last party’s primaries for the 2023 general elections.
However, five women won the tickets of the APC to vie for seats in the Kwara State House of Assembly in the 2023 general elections.
The women are Hajia Arinola Lawal, daughter of former governor Mohammed Lawal; Alhaja Tundun Alanamu, Mrs. Damilola Abass, Mrs. Mariam Aladi, and Ruqayat Shittu.
Lawal defeated the incumbent legislator representing Ilorin East Constituency, Ali Amuda-Jimoh, after polling 47 votes as opposed to Amuda-Jimoh who got 13 votes.
Among them are the Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Raphael Adetiba, representing Oke-Ero Constituency, and Felix Awolola, Chairman of the Assembly Committee on Information who is representing Isin State Constituency in the Assembly.
Two of the Assembly members, Saheed Popoola, representing Ojomu Balogun Constituency in Offa Local Government Area; and Ndanusa Guyegi, representing Edu State Constituency, had earlier defected to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
