Abdulfatah Ahmed Hints Of Dumping APC by deantimes(m): 5:41pm On Jul 26, 2018
THE All Progressive Congress (APC) may loose another State Governor in its fold.

This is coming a day after the party lost the governor of Benue, Samuel Ortom, to the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State may soon follow the footstep of Ortom.

Mr Ahmed is expected to leave the party alongside his predecessor and current Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Both men are being investigated by the police for their alleged links to criminals who executed the fatal Offa robbery in April in the state. Both men have said they are being targeted by the police and the federal government based on political reasons.

Mr Saraki on Tuesday presided over the Senate where 14 senators defected from the APC. He was not among the defectors, but is expected to join soon.

Mr Ahmed’s hint at leaving the APC was provided in a press released by the state government.

Read the full statement below:

Following calls from various stakeholders in Kwara State, the state governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has hinted that he might be quitting the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The governor insisted that the party has not met the expectations of the people of Kwara State.

Governor Ahmed made this known on Thursday at State Banquet Hall, Ilorin while reacting to the requests of various stakeholders in Kwara Central Senatorial District, prevailing on him and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to immediately dump the APC.

The governor recalled how key stakeholders in the ruling APC in the state built the party in 2014 alongside other notable Nigerians with high expectations but were disappointed about the failure of the government at national level to address insecurity, economy and unemployment challenges confronting the nation.

According to the governor, “We formed APC together in 2014 with the hope to meet the needs and aspirations of the people in critical areas of our national life”.

He said the leadership of the APC had failed to intervene on critical issues affecting the party and its members, pointing out that injustice within the party is unbearable.

Governor Ahmed who thanked the people of the state for their support assured the stakeholders that he would consider their pleas and make public the new platform that would meet the aspirations of the people of the state.

He also promised that the administration would continue to run an all-inclusive process that would take care of all interests.

Various stakeholders who spoke at the Town Hall meeting called on the Governor take the state to another political party where their welfare would be guaranteed and expectations would be met.

In his remarks, the State President of Kwara State Artisans Group, Saad Alawaye, who commended Mr Ahmed for his numerous empowerment programmes to the informal sector promised continuous support in moving the state forward.

The State Chairman, Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Joshua Adekanye, who spoke on behalf of all the 16 local government chairmen, their vice chairmen and 193 councillors, expressed readiness to dump the All Progressives Congress in the interest of the people.

On their parts, the Youth leader, Mohammad Ali Baba, and the Women Leader, Rahmat Oganija, thanked the governor for his support to the youth and womenfolk in the state.

They however said they were not comfortable to remain in the APC, citing injustices against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and called for immediate defection to a better and safer political party.

The meeting has in attendance artisans group, market men and women, motorcycle riders, youth groups among others.

Ahmed of Kwara is Sarakis errand boy. His job as a governor is to receive allocation from Abuja, table it in front of Saraki. After Saraki must have taken out his monthly percentage the rest can go to the state.


"Just a reminder. I belong to no one, I am owned by no one, I answer to no one."

Ahmed can't say this as Saraki own him.

You're glorifying him for calling him "Puppet". He can't do anything , in fact he can't think as he has no right to think except Saraki ask him to. He is a goner already.
