Kwara:LP candidate defects APC with hundred followers

1 min read

The candidate of the Labour Party for Ilorin East House of Assembly Constituency, Hon. Abdulkareem Ismail, has defected the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) with hundreds of his followers.

Ismail cited Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s superlative performance and achievements over the years, especially in the area of youth inclusion in governance, as the reason for joining ranks with the APC in the state.

The former Labour Party chieftain announced his defection after a meeting with Commissioner for Tertiary Education, Dr. Afees Abolore Alabi.

The commissioner commended the move by the politician, welcoming him and hundreds of his supporters to the APC.

Ismail said he owes no one apology for his decision, noting he considers it apt and necessary.

“I have been overwhelmed and convinced that truly the Governor is divinely sent to Kwara in order to wipe off our tears through the democratic gains and dividends we are all experiencing in virtually every facet of our sector in the State,” he said.

“The truth be told,  the developmental policies, reforms, programmes, youth inclusion and women participation in governance of His Excellency using whatever form of performance measurement is second to none. The deafs and the blinds are beginning to hear and see respectively.”

Ismail vowed to join hands with other progressives to secure victory for Governor AbdulRazaq during the upcoming election.

He however appreciated Dr. Abolore for being a mentor and unifier, describing him as a humble and smart grassroots politician.
