The Kwara State Governor, Alh. AbdulFatah Ahmed yesterday waved the olive branch at the opposition in the state, urging it to join his administration in the renewed efforts to evolve an agro-driven economy for the state.
Commenting on the Supreme Court’s judgment which reaffirmed his election of April 26, 2011 as the governor of the state, he advised the opposition to team up with his administration, having exhausted the judicial option.
Ahmed in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Alh. AbdulWahab Oba also called on Kwarans at home and abroad to join the moving train of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration in the state, premised on shared prosperity.
He described as a call to greater service, the Supreme Court judgment which yesterday reaffirmed his election.
The governor noted that the judgment had affirmed, beyond any doubt, that the 2011 elections in Kwara state reflected the popular wish and aspirations of the people of the State.
While dedicating his victory to Allah and Kwarans, Ahmed commended Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki and the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at all levels in the state for their support, before and during the litigation.
He expressed the hope that his administration would continue to enjoy the solidarity and cooperation of the people of the state in its effort to make the state number one agriculture destination in the country.
