Gobir Gives Reasons For Supporting Gov AbdulRazaq
The Young Progressives Party (YPP) Governorship Candidate in Kwara State, Waziri Yakubu Gobir has stepped down for incumbent State Governor annd All Progressives Congress Candidate in March 18 election.
Gobir in a message he personally signed and made available to newsmen on Thursday, says Governor Abdulrazaq will accommodate allies including YPP members during his second term.
According to him, My fellow Kwarans, in the last leg of this election trail, it has become apparent that the best way to achieve the goal we have before us is to forge alliances and combine ideologies. To this end, the Young Progressives Party will adopt the incumbent Governor and gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, in the upcoming gubernatorial election.
His words: “I assure you that this decision is not one that was made lightly. It was made after weeks of deliberation and a final concession that the incumbent Governor consider some of the policies outlined in my manifesto (the State of Kwara) alongside his equally well-intentioned 10-year Sustainable Development Plan (2021-2030).
“This ensures that, although I will be conceding my place in the gubernatorial race, the action plan that I feel addresses the peculiar needs of some 2,764 communities, 193 wards and 16 Local Government Areas in Kwara gets fused into the implementation of the Governor’s Development Plan.
“Further to this agreement, it is understood that the Governor, upon winning the election, will form a government that further accommodates allies, including members of our party.
“My fellow Kwarans, a new dawn is upon us, not just for our beloved state but for our nation as well. With our support for Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, we are convinced that Nigeria is undoubtedly about to commence a journey of Renewed Hope.”
Gobir therefore urged Kwarans to vote Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq during Saturday’s election.
