Thirty-five political parties out of the 55 contesting in Kwara State have adopted the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak as their governorship candidate in Saturday’s election.
The spokesman for the parties, under the aegis of Kwara Like-Minds Political Parties (KLPP), Sunday Oladele, disclosed this on Wednesday at a news conference in Ilorin.
His words: “We are at a critical stage in our country, but most especially our dear State is already in the political labour room and KLPP has joined hands with APC and other stakeholders in taking a successful delivery of a liberated Kwara.
“Today is not meant for an unending discussion but to let the world know that when Kwara people are dying slowly in the hands of political tyrants, KLPP showed up.
“When Kwara people are groaning and gnashing their teeth under the bad governance in the state, posterity will be fair to us that KLPP showed up”.
He said KLPP had instructed their members and appealed to teeming voters in Kwara to come out en-masse on Saturday to vote for Abdulrazak.
While speaking at the event, the APC Chairman in the state, Bashir Bolarinwa said though the party was sure of victory in Saturday’s elections, but today’s adoption of APC candidates would guarantee 100 percent success on Saturday.
He noted that the result of the presidential and National Assembly elections showed that Kwara has performed credibly well.
The chairmen of political parties that attended the news conference include PPN, ADC, KOWA, NCP, MAA, NDLP, BNPP, NNPP, IDP, HDP, FJP, NAC, CAP, DPC and APDA.
Others are YDP, PPC, YPP, PRP, NPC, PPP, C4C, PT, RPN, AAC, GDPN, AGA, RPPN, ADP, NPM, ANP, UDP, AAN, DA, ASD and APN.
