Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday, declared that it is time for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to take back the state from the ruling All Progressives Congress, for the people of the state.

 

Speaking at Kwara Talk Show titled ‘ Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’ of our dream, organised by Jamaa Group for Yaman/Makanjuola candidacy for the 2023 gubernatorial election in Ilorin, the state capital, the former governor of the state, challenged Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq to engage in a public debate with the governorship candidate of the PDP if he is courageous enough to account for his stewardship since 2019.

 

Saraki argued that Governor Abdulrazaq should come out and render an account of his achievements in office since 2019, or “count himself as disqualified in the race for his re-election in 2023.”

 

He charged stakeholders and party members to embark on a massive campaign for the party’s gubernatorial candidates and presidential candidate of the party in the bid to ensure total victory for the party.

 

The national leader of the party said all campaign promises made by the ruling APC state government have not been fulfilled three years after being in power.

 

He said the PDP years in the state were characterized by feasible achievements, which include, Aviation College, Kwara state University, Malete, Diagnostic Centre, education, agriculture and health sectors among others.

 

“PDP’s achievements in the past years cannot be dismissed in a hurry, hence I call on you to vote for competent candidates that we shall be proud of as our representatives.

 

“Let us rebuild the state by voting for the right candidates because the difference between Kwara of yesterday and today is very clear as we match towards a brighter tomorrow.”

 

In his own speech, the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Yaman Abdullahi, said the party intends to chart a better future for children and the youths by creating opportunities for them.

 

“In the bid to rescue Kwara from the doldrums, if we need to crawl, we shall crawl, if we need to jump, we shall jump, and if we need to run, we shall run.

 

“I will be transparent, open and accessible,” adding that a prosperous Kwara state is possible if we work together and I am elected in 2023 as governor of the state.”
