APC Rigged 2023 General Elections in Kwara, Prof Ali Ahmad Alleges

Professor Ali Ahmad, a renowned Constitutional Law expert and former Speaker of the Kwara State House of Assembly, has urged the electorate to reject the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming Local Government polls.

He made this call in an interview with 9japarrot media on June 15, a day that coincided with his Sallah Support Initiative program.

Professor Ahmad lamented the failure of the current government to adhere to Local Government autonomy over the past five years, despite the constitutional provision for such autonomy.

He emphasized that the people of Kwara should use the upcoming election to denounce this failure and vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which he believes is the only party that can guarantee accountability and people-oriented administration.

The Professor of Constitutional Law revealed that his findings indicate that the last election was massively rigged to favor the ruling party. However, he noted that the people of Kwara have turned against the APC due to its failure to deliver on its promises. He expressed confidence in the PDP’s chances in the forthcoming Local Government poll, citing the party’s commitment to accountability and transparency.

Professor Ahmad, who has been endorsed as the sole consensus candidate for the 2027 governorship election in Ilorin South, highlighted the misappropriation of millions of Naira by unelected Local Government administrators in Ilorin South as an example of the APC’s failure. He emphasized that the PDP is the only party that can guarantee accountability and people-oriented administration, adding that Kwarans who want Local Government autonomy to become a reality should vote for the PDP without hesitation.

Through his foundation, Professor Ahmad has been providing support to the needy, widows, and orphans across the state, regardless of political affiliation.

He noted that the Ali Ahmad Foundation has been in existence for decades and has touched many lives through its interventions.

The Sallah Support Initiative and other interventions by the foundation are targeted at PDP stakeholders, leaders, and members across the state.

Professor Ahmad urged Kwarans to wise up and demand accountability from their leaders, adding that the PDP is the only party that can guarantee accountability and people-oriented administration.

He expressed confidence that the PDP will emerge victorious in the forthcoming Local Government poll, noting that the party has gained the trust of the people.
