Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, other concerned persons to save the state party from political perdition.
Naija News understands that the party’s call for urgent intervention follows the removal of the state’s Chairman, Bashir Omoloja Bolarinwa by the party National Caretaker Committee.
Reports had it that the state governor, Abdulrahaman Abdulrazak demanded the removal of the Bolarinwa, noting that he can’t work with him.
However, some members of the party in a statement signed by Sunday Oyebiyi, Oyoola Oyedepo and others, said it rejected the development, noting that the decision would pave way for the party’s fall.
According to them in the statement, they had warned the party secretary that the decision could sink the party in the state and he said they really do not care.
The faction, however, insisted that such development would certainly not work in Kwara State no matter who is behind it.
The statement reads: “We have resolved to reject the verdict of the National Caretaker Committee on the purported removal of Hon Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa. It is worth nothing more than the value of the paper on which the letter given to Hon Sanmari Abdulahi is written.”
“It certainly shall not work in Kwara State no matter who is behind it. Though when we told the Secretary that the decision could sink the Party in the state, he said they really
do not care.
“And he repeated during the conversation more than five times that he was acting under the instructions of the Chairman HE, Mai Mala Buni. We shall prove to those that aborted the peoples’ revolution foisting on our Party the present situation since 2018 that Kwara is not an appendage of any outside power conspiracy.
“They continue to compromise our noble cause with these unacceptable decisions and
“Firstly, we appeal to Mr President, Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, to save the Party from the imminent destruction that this decision can engender in Kwara State.
“We also appeal to the leaders of integrity and goodwill in the Party to save this Party from this deliberate journey to political perdition. We appeal to our teeming supporters for calm and that they should remain steadfast, resolute and continue to support this historical cause once again. We should know that it is not over, until it is finally over.”
