Govt Programmes Are People-Oriented, Kwara APC blast PDP.
The Kwara State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has dismissed the ‘Vote of no Confidence’ passed on Governor Abdulfatai Ahmed by the Peoples Democratic Party as illusory, non-representative and unacceptable to the good people of Kwara State.
We maintain that the PDP handlers in Kwara State lack understanding of issues on management and governance. This same confuse Caretaker Chairman of PDP, Solomon Edojah, falsely claimed that the Kwara Express had collapsed, made a u-turn within a week, and said the corporation ‘is one of the leading and viable Corporations yielding large turnover and meeting with the demands of a standard transport service and generating revenue for the state government. A party that could not successfully manage a mere ward congress of its few members lacks the moral authority to question the management of Kwara State. The ‘vote of no confidence’ is illusory, non-representative and unacceptable to the good people of Kwara State.
The frivolous ‘vote of no confidence’ was premised on alleged “failure to implement peoples’ oriented programmes”, for the benefits of kwarans, the government just provided additional three (3) vocational centres in senatorial districts, no fewer than 5,000 kwarans have benefited from the Kwara
State Bridge Empowerment Scheme(KWABES), about 2,000 kwarans were employed into the Civil Service
just four months ago, 500 teachers have been employed into Teaching Service Commission, about 9,000 kwarans are beneficiaries of the #674million
disbursed under Kwara State Entrepreneurship Scheme from 2012 to date and recruitment of 8,200 youths for Quickwin Empowerment Scheme 2014 has started. The PDP said these achievements are not peoples’ oriented programmes, this is just one of the reasons why the people of kwara State will continue to reject the PDP and its antics. The PDP is renowned for corrupt activities, impunity and incompetence, are they people-oriented programmes?
On the issue of bond, it happens all over the world – both in private and public entity. The bond is to boost the Infrastructure Development Fund(IDF) of Kwara State. It is in tune with determination of the government to improve the quality of lives of kwarans. And there is a watertight plan to settle all indebtedness. Must the out-of-favour PDP make mischief out of all issues? Infact, some federal infrastructure like Kaiama – Kishi road will benefit from the IDF. The PDP led federal government has left this road in an extremely bad shape. The road is now a death-trap. The APC led government can not afford to watch kwarans die untimely due to PDP’s neglect and misrule hence the need for urgent intervention and a robust IDF.
Meanwhile, we are aware of plans by PDP leaders to influence the prosecution of arrested PDP suspects in connection with its bloody ward congresses which left many dead. The intervention of Inspector General of Police, Mr Abubakar Mohammed is demanded because barely two days after a PDP chieftain and member of Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon Ilyasu Ibrahim and his son were arrested with loads of ammunition, another gang of PDP thugs were also arrested with firearms at the residence of Kwara State PDP Caretaker Chairman, Solomon Edoja, the Police Command must act professionally and bring these agents of violence to justice in the interest of peace in Kwara State.
The good people of Kwara State should disregard the lethargy PDP and its antics. We are not aliens or strangers in Kwara State, we have always been with the people and, sustainable development of Kwaran State is assured with the APC led government.
Alhaji Sulyman Buhari,
Interim Publicity Secretary,
APC, Kwara State.
