Ahead of 2019 general elections, the three senatorial chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state Wednesday urged Senate President Bukola Saraki to take them to another party where the aspirations and yearnings of Kwarans would be met.
The three APC senatorial chairs include Alhaji Jimoh Balogun (Kwara South), Alhaji Jimoh Adesina (Kwara Central) and Alhaji Isiaka Oniwa (Kwara North).
The trio hinged their call on the fact that APC the laboured tirelessly for in 2015 had failed to meet their yearnings.
Addressing reporters in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, spokesperson of the chairmen Alhaji Balogun said the appeal is a warning signal to APC hierarchy to make amend and right some perceived wrongs in the party.
The meeting was attended by the trio He added that they were determined to quit APC if the wrongs are not corrected “even if Senate President Bukola Saraki insists on not defecting from APC.”
Said he: “Now that another election is on the way, Kwara has considered it fit to implore Saraki to take us to a formidable party that would address the plights of the people if the ruling APC refuses to redeem its campaign promises.
“The perpetual persecution, humiliation and wanton destruction of the personality of the Senate President have been on the increase daily.
This has almost made him lose focus on his good intentions for the country.
“Dr Saraki had contributed immensely to the empowerment and well-being of the people of the state, yet he was recently accused of sponsoring a gang of robbers that robbed banks in Offa, Offa local government area of the state. This is a calculated attempt to drag his name in the mud.
“The recent calculated attempt to disrupt the peace at the National Assembly is another eloquent testimony to destroy the person of the Senate President. This unwholesome treatment is unwarranted and uncalled for.” (The Nation)
