The faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwara state chapter recognized by the court yesterday inaugurated a 45-man campaign council for its governorship and presidential candidates.
The faction led by Hon. Ishola Balogun-Fulani, yesterday in Ilorin urged the electorate to give massive support to APC’s governorship candidate, Hon. Kayode Abdulwahab as well as President Muhammad Buhari.
Speaking at the inauguration, Balogun-Fulani said that the inauguration of the campaign council was in line with the recent decision of the Ilorin High Court, and added that the court granted the 13 reliefs sought by the applicants in the matter.
“Our business today is to inaugurate our campaign council for our party. We are doing this with the authority we derived from the court judgment. As you are aware we have it specifically on the 13 reliefs we asked the court to give us and all were granted but it is relief six that has brought us here today.
“We read the relief because some people are saying we don’t have it. We appreciate our President Muhammadu Buhari who has given us the opportunity to go to court to seek redress and he has said that as a man of honour anything that comes from the court he will obey.
“Time is against us. We are not enemies of anybody, we are friends of all. So, we want everyone to come to our side so that our governor will win and our president will also win. We want to ask everyone to go back and work seriously so that we are able to deliver the state for our party. We are the only one who can do it”, he said.
The factional chairman said that the objective of the party is that all its candidates must win, calling on members of the campaign council to work assiduously for a successful outing in the elections.
While acknowledging the need for the party’s members and stalwarts to work together as a team, Balogun-Fulani said that the leadership of the party was open to dialogue.No tags for this post.
