The elders ,including Chief Cornelius Adebayo, Brig Gen Saliu Bello (rtd), Prof. Ibrahim Gambari and Engr Simeon Daramola, are of the opinion that Kwara has immensely benefited from the present administration under the leadership of President Buhari.A press statement was realeased to this effect:
“We hereby declare our support for the second term bid of President Muhammadu Buhari because we believe he has done well within the socio-economic and political realities of the country and the glaring resistance to positive change by some reactionary elements. “We distance ourselves and our people from the greed-driven diatribes and frustrations of a certain political dynasty in Kwara State against the president. “In that light, we throw our weight behind the president’s plan to evolve a new political culture where nobody is seen to be above the law or is allowed to continue to trade with public funds as they recently exposed themselves to be doing,” Oyedepo said. Oyedepo also said they are backing AbdulRazaq of the APC for the governorship poll, adding that his campaign slogan. ‘O To Ge’ has captured the social political mood of the people who crave for a new dawn in the state.
Oyedepo in the statement released ,mentioned their support of the APC candidate for Governorship,AbdulRazaq.He said :
“We agree with the candidate that the crises of governance, poverty and youth restiveness and frustrations in Kwara are directly linked to the irresponsible, corrupt and morally-challenged political leadership in the state which holds our people and their culture in utter contempt.We submit that this endorsement arose from practical analysis of the political space and its realities”.
The locals have called for more security beef for before and after the election.The people of Kwara ,Ilorin believe president Buhari would do a better job if given another tenure.
