The Crisis brewing in All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kwara state is far from being over as three Senators from the three senatorial districts of the state have declared support for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq
Again, it was leant that members of the Kwara state house of Assembly had reportedly said they will report the minister to the National working committee of its party in the way things are unfolding
The Reaction came after another parallel party office was inaugurated in Kwara recently by the Alhaji Lai Mohammed
The senators: Ibrahim Oloriegbe (Kwara Central), Lola Ashiru (Kwara South) and Umar Sadiq (Kwara North), said this at a joint press conference, in Abuja and that which was monitored by urban Express-News online
They equally maintained that funds generated by the party for the prosecution of the 2019 elections were fully accounted for.
The legislators said the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed was not speaking the minds of the party members when he said Kwara State, under the current administration, had “entered one-chance.”
The lawmakers also explained that the revalidation of membership registration would soon start to enable those who had yet to register, do so before the state party’s congress.
The senators said they were already intervening in the political differences between AbdulRazaq and Mohammed with a view to sustaining the harmonious relationship among all members of the APC in the state.
Ashiru said, “Our meeting here is to assure you that Kwara, under the leadership of Governor Abdulrazaq is doing extremely very well in terms of development both physical and urban development.
“We want to assure you that the issue at hand, we don’t want to escalate it because is totally centred on what happened two years ago. We feel we have passed that milestone. We are in a new era.
“A very good era, an era where the slogan of ‘Otoge’ was orchestrated and we are happy that today, we have a new revolution in Kwara.”
Also, Senator Oloriegbe said, “We are very focused on this programme (Otoge) and what it means.
“As senators, we are working harmoniously with the governor. We want to bring everybody together.
The lawmaker also explained that the extension of membership registration of the party in the state would commence on July 24
Meanwhile, the crisis rocking the Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has so far shown no sign of abating.
Supporters of the Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, on Wednesday, threatened punitive measures against the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
This is even as the party leadership is said to be preparing to “notify’’ President Muhammadu Buhari, about the development.
