The All Progressives Congress (APC) welcomes Tuesday’s ruling of the Court of Appeal affirming the Kwara State APC governorship candidate, Abdul-Rahman AbdulRazaq, setting aside an earlier state High Court ruling.
Indeed, this is a huge loss to Bukola Saraki and a dress-rehearsal for the final knockout that awaits him and all that he represents in the general elections. The ruling gives our teeming supporters and the good people of Kwara added momentum to free the state from the grip of self-appointed leaders who have held Kwara backward for years.
Nigerians will recall Saraki’s shameless attempt to hijack and sabotage the APC structure in Kwara State through his political mercenaries parading themselves as the Ishola Balogun Fulani-led party executives in Kwara State. That plan has failed woefully as a new Kwara beckons.
It is heart-warming that Saraki is seeing the limits of impunity as Kwarans prepare for long-awaited freedom, progress and development under a progressive APC dispensation.
