The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial aspirants in Kwara have thanked the former Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, and party stakeholders in Central and South Senatorial Districts, for agreeing to unanimously zone the ticket to the North.
The thank-you letter to Dr Sararki, and party leaders in Kwara Central and South was signed by all the eight gubernatorial aspirants from Kwara North on Tuesday.
The signatories are Rt. Hon. Bio Ibrahim, a former Speaker of the Kwara House of Assembly, and former Minister of Transport and Sports; Hon. Ahman Patigi, a former member of the House of Representatives; Ambassador (Prof.) Mohammed Gana Yisa; Hon. Isa Bawa and Alhaji Abubakar Shamaki.
Others include Alhaji Ndanusa Kawu Adam, Barr. Saadudeen Alikinla and Hon. Zakari Mohammed.
They said “With this zoning, the entire people of Kwara North are committed to fully support whoever emerges as the party’s candidate and will massively vote for the party in the 2023 general elections.
“Political leaders and technocrats in Kwara State praised Dr Saraki and Kwara PDP for having the courage to do the right thing.”
The letter said that since 1999, power has rotated between Kwara Central and Kwara South with Central producing three governors (Mohammed Lawal, Bukola Saraki and AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq) and Kwara South, producing Abdulfafah Ahmed, while the Kwara North was completely excluded from power sharing.
