My attention has been drawn to a make-believe list making round on different social media platforms whereas my name was also enlisted as one of the selfish-driven defectors who have compromised their political integrity at the expense of the masses of Kaiama LGA to re-align forces with the erstwhile rejected godfather to dethrone this hardworking administration under the guise of political defection.
Let me state it in clear terms that I was truly approached about this selfish, ridiculous and bizarre movement but decline the plan and was never part of any arrangement in the compilation of the fictitious list going viral let alone agreeing to be enlisted.
I can not speak for other LGAs in Kwara but masses of Kaiama LGA will never forgive anybody let alone a “stakeholder” who is leaving the APC for the drowning PDP. It is selfish, greedy and show of shame. Kaiama has achieved so much under this administration and any movement such as the show of shame we saw in Kaiama on Sunday is, to say the least, a betrayal of masses trust and political deception.
My political integrity and reputation is placed above selfish goals and I desist from any fictitious plan or arrangement to betray the trust Kaiama masses, leadership and my family have reposed in me, not even in exchange of any material wealth or thing.
Aside my good relationship with the federal lawmaker representing Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency of Kwara State, Hon. Mohammed Omar Bio and the senator representing Kwara North, Dist. Sen. Sadiq Umar, the governor is doing a wonderful job in Kaiama LGA and other parts of the state. This is the first time that the masses of Kaiama are feeling the impact of governance and realising a government closer to them.
It is my believe that those who manipulated up the imaginary list must have done so with a deliberate intention to defraud their target using my hard-earned reputation and political status in the state. Yes, I have not been on the same page with the governor for a while but that does not mean I am blind to the achievements recorded, so far, especially in Kaiama LGA. So it will amount to political greed, selfishness and betrayal of masses trust to leave the APC for a drowning PDP in Kwara State.
It is also important to state that my conception of politics is not about me and my family alone but for the good of the larger society. I am what I am in politics because of the people of Kaiama and so would not have taken such a decision as leaving the APC for the PDP without the awareness of the people of Kaiama.
My devotion to APC is unshakable. So I am using this medium to declare my unalloyed loyalty to the government of Kwara State under the leadership of Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the Kwara APC Chairman, Prince Sunday Fagbemi, the House of Representatives member representing Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency, Hon. Mohammed Omar Bio, the senator representing Kwara North, Dist. Sen. Sadiq Suleiman Umar as well as others. These present crops of political leaders have done so well and deserve reelection by all well-meaning Kwarans.
