I’m not in romance with PDP, says Kwara gov

Share This

From Olanrewaju Lawal, Ilorin

Kwara state governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has described as false, provocative and contemptuous the insinuation that he is romancing with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a party he left alongside other progressives for the All Progressives Congress(APC).

According to the governor in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdulwahab Oba, such insinuation is not only baseless but prepostrious. “Ordinarily, the allegation, peddled by people with devious intent, does not deserve a response as the objective is obvious. However, we need to alert the good people of Kwara state to the desperate ploy by selfish people with sinister political interests to cause disaffection and stir anxiety in the populace.”, the governor said.

“Assuming without conceding that Gov. Ahmed wanted to return to PDP, which faction of the rudderless and visionless party would he have negotiated with?”, the statement queried.

“For the record, our decision to leave the PDP was premised on the need to build a new nation where every citizen has the opportunity to prosper, in which our youths are productively engaged and where the disadvantaged are assisted to live a decent life”, the governor said.

“On the issues of the N23b bond, it is typical of the mischief of these tale bearers to amplify the figure by N12b in a bid to make their story sound credible. Governor Ahmed and othermofficials of this administration have used every occasion to explainmwhy the N23b bond is the best for Kwara now. Suffice to add that the foundation for the current and future prosperity of Kwara State must be laid and entrenched today”, the statement added.
