Saraki spoke in Ilorin shortly after the conduct of APC’s local government congresses.A former Governor of Kwara State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Bukola Saraki yesterday restated his resolve to absolutely deliver the State to the party in the 2015 elections.
The congresses were held peacefully across the 16 local government areas. Saraki participated in the exercise in Ilorin West local government area where he hails from. The former governor, who expressed satisfaction over the smooth and peaceful conduct of the exercise that produced the party officials through affirmation, charged them to start working for the party ahead of the 2015 general elections. Saraki, who recently dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for APC alongside his loyalists and supporters, including Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, restated that the APC remained the winning party in the State. According to him, “Those that still want to learn from history, be rest assured that Kwara is solidly an All Progressives Congress (APC) State”. He said, “Here, we are one family. Here, we are committed to delivering in totality the entire Kwara State to the APC family. Those we have today as Ilorin West local government executives, I charge you all to go out and start the work of winning the State for the APC. We have less than eleven months to the 2015 elections and we must start the work now. “We do not want to give any vote. We want to win totally. We want to send a message across Nigeria. We want to send a message to the pretenders that in Kwara State, we are not seasonal politicians. What do I mean by seasonal politicians? People, who after election, they go home and lock their doors and windows. They only care with their families. They don’t open the doors to anybody. Then, nine months to elections they will come and are looking for votes. “We are here day in day out with our people and our people appreciate it. That is why they will come out to vote massively for APC”.
