The gubernatorial candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq, Tuesday, condemned the ban on political rallies and processions in the state by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.
Abdulrazaq, who visited his party supporters who were shot and brutalized by thugs loyal to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state
called on police to fish out the the perpetrators.
His words: “They started by attacking our rallies, we have held many rallies and there have not been violence in any of the rallies, but the moment we stepped out to campaign, they attacked us. We launch our billboards but they bring them down.”
“It’s not about APC candidate any more, it’s a movement to bring Kwara back after 16 years of stealing, they stole our resources, they have turned Kwara state into an ATM, they steal money, all you need to do is, look at evidence presented at the code of conduct tribunal to see where our monies have gone.”
Reacting to the governor’s ban on rallies and procession, he said, “They don’t want us to get there but we’ll get there by the grace of God. In a democratic setting, how can they ban a rally. We are victims of violence here we are victims of their violence and it must stopped.”
