The PDP in Kwara yesterday said it will win the 2019 elections in the state with ease.
The party said this was possible because the PDP under the leadership of Senate President Bukola Saraki had over the years established a strong bond with the people of the state, adding that they were assured of their continued support and loyalty.
The PDP was reacting to a purported order by President Muhammadu Buhari asking stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who visited him on Monday, in Abuja, to defeat the PDP and dislodge Saraki in next year’s general elections.
The party, in a statement by its state publicity secretary, Tunde Ashaolu, told President Buhari and the APC to prepare to accept imminent defeat.
It described the directive given the APC by President Buhari to take over the mantle of leadership in the state as “a dream and exercise in futility.”
The party noted that President Buhari should be more worried about the killings going on in different parts of the country and other pressing issues confronting the nation “rather than get fixated on the tall dream of APC taking over power in Kwara State.”
“As a responsible and compassionate party, we enjoin the APC-led government to urgently address the insecurity in the country rather than dissipating its energy to cause unrest in a peaceful state like Kwara. The senseless killings in Kaduna, Plateau, Benue, Borno and in other parts of the country are unacceptable and must stop immediately,” the PDP said.
