KWARA Central: Gov Abdulrazaq Gives Reasons for Supporting Saliu Mustapha

KWARA State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq said on Saturday that Mallam Saliu Mustapha has proven to be the perfect fit for Senator of Kwara Central and has established himself as a man of the people before seeking political office.

Governor Abdulrazaq stated this the inauguration of the Saliu Mustapha Campaign Team in Ilorin, ahead of 2023 general elections.

The Governor described Mustapha as a personality with a strong network that would give the state leverage in Abuja and also complement the efforts of the state government.

“The opposition are afraid of Saliu Mustapha because he is a formidable Turaki,” he said.

According to Gov. Abdulrazaq, the leader of the People Democratic Party in Kwara, Mr Saraki backed out of the senatorship race after Mallam Mustapha registered his interest in the role.

“He enjoys a wide acceptability rating among the people. We believe APC will win big with him as Kwara Central Senatorial Candidate,” he added.

Abdulrazaq therefore urged citizens of Kwara state not to make another grave mistake of voting for a candidate of the opposition.

“We want a senator that will not turn into a contractor or use us to negotiate,” he said. “We are clearing the mess of previous administrations. We used N3.5 billion SURE-P refund to pay gratuity for 2009/2010 retirees. Who was the Governor during that period?

“I don’t understand what they are coming back to do. To continue mismanagement of State resources or return us backwards where they left the State?”

Mallam Saliu Mustapha, in his remarks, urged his Campaign Team not to reduce their efforts to the House of Assembly but to work for all party flag bearers up to the President.

“We must record total victory for APC like it was in 2019,” Mallam Mustapha, the Turaki of Ilorin said.
