The Senate president, Dr Bukola Saraki yesterday said that there is no way for the national leader of All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu to annex Kwara state, even as he begged the people of the state to forgive whoever among the PDP candidates that might have offended them previously one way or the other to forgive them and vote for all the candidates because of him, and the interest of the state.
Saraki spoke at the flag off campaign ceremony of the gubernatorial candidate of the party, Hon Abdulrazaq Atunwa, and other contestants of the party in Bode-Sadu, Moro local government area of Kwara state.
He said,”Whatever wrong any of our candidates had done you, please forgive them because of me, and the interest of Kwara and vote for all of them in the coming elections. Don’t worry, whoever among them that failed to perform this time around, we will together send them away “
“We have known each other, don’t be deceived by their propaganda, they have failed us totally in the last three and a half years. Let’s send them away with their hunger, poverty hardship and insecurity they brought to Nigeria with our permanent voter’s card (PVC)in the forthcoming elections
“The purported move of Senator Bola Tinubu and his cohorts to take over political power, in the state during the forthcoming general elections is an empty threat that would not materialize.
According to him, ” those who are against us are not from here and they are outside the north and by the grace of God, they will not have their way in Kwara during the 2019 elections”.
He also said that “these oppositions groups are not known in Kwara. They are just impostors, receptionists, propagandist among others. I want you to reject them during the polls so as to move the state forward.
He said, ”We must all come out with our permanent voter’s cards and come out enmasse during the polls to vote for all the PDP candidates and Alhaji Abubakar Atiku and Mr. Peter Obi as a presidential candidate and vice presidential candidate respectively during the elections”
He, therefore, urged the PDP members to move to various households in the state and mobilized for the party so as to assist the party to win the forthcoming general elections in the state .
He said he would also continue with the good work of previous administration so as to continue to advance the needs of the rural populace.
