A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara, Chief Wole Oke has described Saturday’s Governorship election as very crucial to the emancipation of the state from clutches of oppression.
Chief Oke, a leader of the party from Kwara North said this on Tuesday in a statement in Ilorin urging the people to come out en masse to vote for the candidates of APC on Saturday.
“The current euphoria of the presidential and national assembly election victory should not be allowed to blind or delude the people into believing that all is well.
“Nothing at this stage should be taken for granted lest our complacence become our Achilles heels, the back door through which our current victory could be rubbished by a wily and sly political game master.
“The people of Kwara State should be reminded that a bruised snake is more deadly,” Oke said.
He therefore appealed to the people of the state to come out in full force and more determined than they were on February 23 to vote massively for APC governorship candidate, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and all APC House of Assembly candidates on Saturday.
We can be partakers and active participants in the management of the patrimony and commonwealth of the State only if we vote massively for the APC candidates in the elections.
This remains the only means of breaking away from the practice and tradition of the last sixteen years in the governance of our state and the only avenue to the sustenance of the collective dignity and integrity of the people of Kwara State as human beings,” Oke added.
He noted that the resounding victory of APC in February 23 Presidential and National Assembly elections marked the beginning of the end of the hegemonic rule of a nascent, political dynasty in Kwara.
“With this outcome, a new chapter has been opened in the political history of the State of Kwara; and a fresh beginning in the governance style of the State already in the offing.
“However, it is ‘not yet Uhuru’. We still have more rivers to cross.
“The governorship and the State Assembly elections of March 9, 2019 are very significant and, indeed, much more relevant to the cause of the people’s struggle for total liberation from the political bondage,” Oke added.
