Before now it was all selection by Saraki the father..and thereafter by Saraki the son.Now, all that is over.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the choice of the APC Governorship candidate for Kwara state,this time, will be made through a rigorous and transparent process, as the party is set
to win the state’s governorship election in 2019
The Minister, who is the leader of the APC in Kwara State, stated this in Ilorin on Wednesday, at a parley organized for the APC governorship aspirants in the state to present their vision and mission for the state.
He described as unprecedented the parley that saw 12 of the 13 governorship aspirants under the auspices of the APC present their manifestos to the state APC stakeholders at a well-attended and well-organised session in the state capital.
”This parley is one of a kind, perhaps unprecedented in the history of our dear state. It signposts our determination to conduct a transparent and hitch-free primaries, to do things differently from the past so that we can move our state forward and raise the living standards of our people. After all, governance is all about the
people,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
The Minister said the parley will go down in history as the first time any political party in Kwara State will be organising such a forum as a platform to analyze the vision and mission of its aspirants.
Explaining the process, he said each aspirant was required to present his vision and mission to party stakeholders, in an open, transparent and organized manner.
”If you become the Governor of Kwara State under the APC flag, what can the long-suffering people of our dear state expect from you? How do you intend to ensure that the government serves the people rather than just one man? How can what has become a one-man rule be transmuted to majority rule for the betterment of the people? The answers to these and other questions will give us an insight into your plan of action for the state,” Alhaji Mohammed said
In his remarks, the Caretaker Chairman of Kwara APC, Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa, said the parley marked a radical departure from the past when past chief executives of the state were determined by just one man.
The aspirants who made presentations at the forum included Oba
Abdulraheem; Dele Belgore (SAN); Saliu Mustapha; Ishaq Modibbo Kawu;
Tajudeen Audu, Yakubu Gobir; Lukman Mustapha and Moshood Mustapha.
Others were Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq; Abdulfatah Yahaya Sarki; Shuaibu
Yaman and Hakeem Lawal.
