EXPOSED…. Why Kwarans voted against Saraki— Prof. Oba



Prof. Shuaib Oba Abdulraheem OFR

Former governorship aspirant on the platform of the all Progressives  Congress,  (APC), in Kwara State, Prof Shuaib Abdulraheem, has made revelations on why Kwarans voted against Senate President Bukola Saraki during the February 23, elections.

Abdulraheem who is also the Director of Policy, Research and Strategy of the APC Presidential campaign council, in an interview at the weekend disclosed that Saraki lacks good governance skill.

He noted that the people of Kwara State had always hoped for good governance, which he said was lacking all through the period Saraki held sway in the state.

The varsity don further stressed that the state had been liberated from the grip of Saraki and his proxies, following the February 23 election defeat, and urged the electorate to complete the task in the March 9 governorship and House of Assembly elections.

According to him, “I think everything is about good governance and it is the dividend of democracy. Whatever a person assumes in the name of leadership, if he is not actually doing it in executing the wishes of the people, there is no way the person can continue.

“It is not as if posterity is the deciding factor; it is actually the bottom line itself. The people wanted and always want good governance, which was not the case under his leadership. I think we must never forget that this is not about political parties; it is not about aspirants; it is about the will of the people being freely expressed through the ballot.”

Speaking on the popular UNILORIN 49 saga, Prof. Oba Abdulraheem said it was unfortunate that people misunderstood what happened.

“I did not sack any lecturer but merely carried out the instruction of the governing council as the vice-chancellor.

“The policy around staff matters belongs to the governing council which is also responsible to them. The vice-chancellor cannot sack anybody; he has no such authority. He can only do the directive of the government,” he said.
