The Olofa of Offa, Oba Muftau Gbadamosi Esuwoye II, has expressed optimism that the Speaker of Kwara State House of Assembly and a gubernatorial aspirant, Dr. Ali Ahmad will take the state to greater heights if elected as the state governor. Esuwoye, a front line monarch made this assertion when he received Ahmad and his team in his palace at Offa.
The monarch said that he was pleased with Ahmad as “the candidate that can ensure peaceful co – existence and sustain development of the state.”
The foremost traditional ruler explained that America and other Western countries became great due to election of viable successors , pointing out that “Nigeria’s democracy and Kwara State could become great, if we have successive leaders who are passionate about development of their communities.” He added that the “overwhelming majority of stakeholders in the state speak well about him.”
The Oloffa of Offa, who expressed confidence that Offa community’s interest and indeed that of Kwara will be better served under the Speaker as governor, said he would have personally purchased nomination form for him, had he failed to do so himself.
He, therefore, urged all PDP delegates and political gladiators in the state to pick Ahmad as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate for next year’s gubernatorial election in the state.
Earlier, Ahmad had explained that he was in Oloffa’s palace to seek royal blessing, stressing that he would continue to accord traditional institution the respect it deserves.
Similarly, at Erin-Ile in Oyun local government area, the Elerin of Erin-Ile, Oba AbdulGaniyu Ajibola Olusookun, while supporting the candidature of the Speaker, described him as an honest person, man of integrity, who has the capacity to move the state forward.
