2015: No votes for ‘seasonal politicians’ in Kwara – Saraki

Former governor of Kwara state and chieftain of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that there wouuld be no votes for people he called ‘seasonal politicians’ in the 2015 general elections in state, stressing that he would deliver totally to the APC.

Saraki stated this in Ilorin, the state capital, on Saturday shortly after the conduct of APC’s local government congresses.
He said: “Those that still want to learn in history, be rest assured that Kwara is solidly an All Progressives Congress (APC) state. Here we are one family; here we are committed in delivering in total the entire Kwara state to the APC family.

“Those we have today as Ilorin West local government executives, I charge you to all go out and start the work of winning the state to the APC. We have less than eleven months to the 2015 elections and we must start the work now.

“We do not want to give any vote, we want to win total. We want to send a message across Nigeria; we want to send a message to the pretenders that in Kwara state we are not seasonal politicians. What do I mean by seasonal politicians? People after election they go home and lock their doors and windows. They only care with their families they don’t open the doors to anybody. Then nine months to elections they will come and are looking for votes.”

The political leader of the state participated in the exercise in Ilorin West local government area, where all the 25 executives of the party were elected through affirmation by the delegates after reaching a consensus agreement.
