The crisis rocking All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwara State chapter was on Monday took another dimension when some stakeholders in the party alleged the acting State Chairman of the party, Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, and others of pursuing destructive agenda.
The meeting which held at the Kwara Hotel Hall, Ilorin in the presence of party elders and members cut across the sixteen Local Government Areas in the state alleged that Bolarinwa and his co-travelers did not hide the fact that they are pull-down AbdulRazaq Government.
According to the prepared speech read by one of the chieftains, Chief Sunday Fagbemi “For the past few months a number of events have occurred within our great party APC in Kwara State. Some members of our party have chosen to play to the gallery on issues of party administration or the performance of the government freely elected by the people of this state in 2019. We have watched and spoken to these persons in private for many months in our innocent belief that they were going to abandon selfish agenda for common growth and join hands with the administration to make life a lot better for our people”
“Having failed to listen to the voice of reason and constantly turning history on its head to deceive unsuspecting members of the party and general public, we are compelled as party stakeholders and elders to stand up to be counted at this critical moment and set the record straight. This press briefing has therefore been called to make it clear that the Governor, humble, unassuming, and performing, is a victim of vicious attacks and blackmails from individuals who have long masked their greed, personal aggrandizement, ego, unbridled ambitions, and a false sense of entitlement with claims that they are fighting for the party”
“The Governor and the silent majority of our party members and leaders are putting up with persons who feel that we owe our breaths and victory at the poll to them alone”
“Unknown to many unsuspecting members of the public, the emergence of various groups that have declared support for the Governor was not without a justifiable background. It is to show that this performing Governor is not without patriots who felt that the only essence of Otoge was the service of the people. Other interests are secondary. For as long as the Governor does this, he has the full backing of the majority of party members, elders and the entire populace of Kwara State”
“Quite sadly, shortly after the inauguration of the Governor, some chieftains within the party started a campaign codenamed ‘jeunkosanwo’. This implied that the Governor was never going to have a second term, irrespective of his Sterling performance. They were ready to frustrate and distract the government just to realize their own selfish ambitions. Despite working against the Governor from day one of his administration, many of them felt it was their birthright to become the godfathers to the same Governor and handpick anyone for him”
“Why then would anyone from his own party go against him? The only explanation is that such persons are not interested in development but in their own hidden agenda which is at variance with the Otoge mantra. We have kept quiet for long in the expectation that good reason will prevail. But silence is no longer golden and it is about time every patriot, within and outside our party, stood by this humble and hard-working gentleman in order not to allow a few persons with a dangerous sense of entitlement and greed to erode the historic gains of 2019”
