Saraki and I Will Not Return to PDP – Kwara State Governor


Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has recently declared that he and Senate President, Bukola Saraki, will not defect back to the People Democratic Party (PDP) despite Atiku’s urging.

Speaking with journalists at Abuja, he stated that he would remain in the All Progressives Congress, as that is the most appropriate platform for them to render better services to Nigerians. He further went on to state that leaving APC was pointless.

The governor said, “It is very unlikely for us to return to the PDP because we are not unhappy with where we are in terms of expectations, service delivery and direction of governance.

“When you are already working towards achieving result, you will want to see that the result get to the people before you will begin to say you want to jump boat.

“We don’t have any reason to jump boat for now. Don’t forget that we left the PDP because we had reasons to do so. We don’t have reasons to leave now. We have reason to see that service delivery is given to the people.

“We are committed to ensuring it gets to the people. When I used the word ‘we,’ it is inclusive of the Senate President. We are fully committed to using the instrumentality of the APC to deliver service to the people and we have a strong direction. It will be foolhardy to abandon that, leave and go and start all over again. When I say ‘we,’ I am talking about the political group in Kwara.”

Ahmed also said it was unfair to judge the APC government at the national level in just two years of being in the saddle.

He said it was impossible anywhere in the world to correct societal wrongs in two years.
