APC Vows To Win In Kwara State By Wide Margin

Date: 2022-12-24

APC vows to win in Kwara State by wide Margin As Nigeria’s general elections draw nearer, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Campaign Council in Kwara state, North-Central Nigeria, has vowed that the party will win the gubernatorial election in the state by a wide margin.

The chairman of the party in the state, Prince Sunday Fagbemi; the director-general of the campaign council, Ambassador Abdulfatahi Seriki; and the spokesperson of the council, Mrs Florence Oyeyemi, made the declaration at a news conference in Ilorin, the state capital.

Fagbemi and Seriki disclosed that efforts were ongoing to bring back former stalwarts of the APC who have emerged as the governorship candidates of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Young Progressives Party (YPP), and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

“APC shall win the gubernatorial election and other elections by a wide margin.

“The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, is one of our leaders and he’s still part of us.

“He has never said that he’s no longer part of us. He will participate in the 2023 general elections with us.

“The closer you look, the lesser you know as it concerns the APC in Kwara.

“Never mind, by the time elections come, you will see that we’re going to win by a wide margin than what happened in 2019.

“There’s no cause for alarm,” said Fagbemi. For his part, the APC campaign council’s director-general, Ambassador Yahaya Seriki, said that the council was working hard to bring back former APC stalwarts who have emerged as gubernatorial candidates of other parties like the Young Progressives Party (YPP), the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), the Social Democratic Party (SDP). Seriki assured that the exodus of governorship and senatorial candidates of the YPP, SDP, NNPP and ADC from the ruling party will not have a negative effect on the chances of the governor in the 2023 general elections.

“If you could recall, I was the director-general of the APC campaign council in the Kwara Central senatorial district in 2018/2019 general elections.

“Many of these people that decamped from the APC didn’t participate in the election campaign then.

“You see, all these people in the YPP, SDP, we were part of one big family and are related in one way or the other.

“In 2019, I approached about 13 governorship aspirants then on the need to present one person among all of us as the party’s governorship candidate.

“The major reason they are not in the APC today is because of their personal interest or expectations which, according to them, might not have been met.

“My own interest is to see a better Kwara state.

“If they believe in the growth of the state, they would not have left the party.

“Kwara is bigger than anybody. Leaving the party, to me, is out of personal interest and not that of the state.

“The departure of those that decamped from the party would not affect the chances of the governor in his re-election bid,” he said.

Also speaking, the campaign council spokesperson, Mrs Florence Oyeyemi, said that the state has moved from the 20th position on financial sustainability index in 2018 to eighth position currently.

She was responding to an allegation by the opposition on alleged huge debt profile of the present administration, explaining that there was no way the present administration would have been servicing debt and still move up on the financial sustainability index.

“Fiscal sustainability index simply means ability to be able to sustain your finances, comparing it with what your loan repayment schedules are and relating it with federal accounting and allocation Committee (FAAC) and IGR,” she said.

According to her, the only facility taken by the present administration was bond, which she said was being used for the execution of sustainable projects like the Garment-making Factory, the Innovation Hub and Visual Arts Centre.
