A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress,APC in Kwara State,
Mohammed Akanbi has said that the best bet for the liberation of the people of Kwara State from political domination by PDP’s dynastic rule is the APC governorship candidate, Abdulrahman Abdulrazak and all hands must be on deck irrespective of party affiliation to rally round and ensure his success in the forthcoming general elections.
Addressing a mammoth crowd of APC supporters protesting the continued refusal of defeated aspirant and former Unilorin VC, Prof Oba Abdurraheem to accept the verdict of the primaries won by Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, Akanbi maintained that even the professor cannot muster the mass appeal, political credentials and proven business acumen of the governorship candidate.
Recalled that following the successful emergence of Abdurrahman Abdulrazak as APC governorship candidate in Kwara State and his endorsement by the NWC of the party, all the defeated aspirants have been accepting the verdict and resolving to support his candidature except the professor who has been the subject of mounting criticism and pressure from party stalwarts for persisting in challenging the outcome.
Akanbi who urged the enraged protesters to remain law abiding urged the major stakeholders of the party in the state to realise the implications of Professor Oba’s uncooperative posture on the outcome of the primaries considering the fact that at his age and status in the party he should be the first to endorse the victory of Abdurrahman Abdulrazak “who is akin to his grandson”.
The stakeholder highlighted the outstanding qualifications of Abdulrazak as a long standing political role model of the youths of the state and leading facilitator of the APC’s rapid expansion and acceptance throughout Kwara State stemming from his accomplishments in the oil business and other resourceful endeavours that endeared him to the people of the state, especially youth and women.
“With or without the 75 year old former vice chancellor who is already in retirement, the future of Kwara State will be brighter after the success of Abdurrahman Abdulrazak in the 2019 governorship election which will mark the much desired transformation and liberation of the people of Kwara State from recycling of PDP dynasty and perpetual domination,” Akanbi remarked.
