2023: Don’t Allow PDP Taste Power In Kwara Again – Senate President Warns

The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has advised the people of Kwara State not to allow those they chased out of the State Government House in 2019 to find their way back to power.

Lawan made the call on Saturday in Ilorin, the state capital, while inaugurating some of the constituency projects sponsored by Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe who is representing Kwara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.

This was contained in a statement by his spokesman, Ola Awoniyi, titled, ‘2023: Don’t allow people you chased out return to power, Lawan tells Kwarans’.

The current All Progressives Congress-led administration in the state took over power from the Peoples Democratic Party in 2019. But speaking on Saturday, Lawan urged the people to continue to keep faith in APC.

According to him, I will like to remind you here, that those people that you chased out will never get tired of trying to come back. You have only one more of “Otoge” and they will never come back.

“In 2023, just chase them far away from Kwara, and they will never find their way to Kwara. Don’t take it for granted. They are smart people. You know that. Chase them far away, if you can, up to the Atlantic Ocean if you chose to chase them to the South. If you wish, chase them up to Niger Republic. Chase them far away from here.

“The people of Kwara, you have gotten what you deserve from 2019. You have a state governor that is for you. You have your National Assembly members that are for you. You have your state Assembly members that are for you and council chairmen and councillors.

“Don’t ever take that for granted. In less than three years, what our state governor in Kwara has done, what our members of the National Assembly, our distinguished Senators, all the three of them, Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe from Kwara Central, Senator Sadiq Suleiman Umar of Kwara North, Senator Lola Ashiru of Kwara South, have given every time that they need to give for us in the Senate to achieve what we have been able to achieve in the Senate.

“You don’t need to think twice. Vote for them more than you did in 2019. Make the gap more than convincing. Vote massively. Don’t assume, well we won in 2019. These people, send them far away from Kwara so that we can maintain the trajectory of what you have been able to get today because, Nigerians, having gone through 16 years of deprivation, of misgovernance between 1999 and 2015, deserve the progressives to continue to provide leadership in Nigeria,” Lawan said.
