Kwara State Governor, Alh­aji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has described as false, the insinuation that he has been romancing with the Peoples Democrat­ic Party (PDP), a party which he left along with others for the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the gov­ernor, in a statement is­sued by his Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdul­wahab Oba, such insinu­ation was not only base­less but preposterous. 'Ordinarily, the allega­tion, peddled by people with devious intent, does not deserve a re­sponse as the objective is obvious. However, we need to alert the peo­ple of Kwara State to the desperate ploy by selfish people with sinister po­litical interest to cause disaffection and stir anxiety in the populace.

'For the record, our decision to leave the PDP was premised on the need to build a new nation where every citi­zen has the opportunity to prosper, in which our youths are productively engaged and where the disadvantaged are as­sisted to live a decent life.

'For the avoidance of doubt, the relation­ship between Governor Ahmed and the former governor and Leader of the APC, Dr. Bukola Saraki, remains cordial, warm and solid.

'It is equally ludi­crous that they alleged that the governor was on a save my soul mis­sion to his brother gov­ernors in the APC as well as being one of the earliest visitors to the new National Chairman of the PDP. Governor Ahmed has no need for such visits and he has not embarked on any. For him, the task is the actualisation and fulfill­ment of the covenant he entered into with Kwarans during the last elections as encapsulat­ed in the Shared Pros­perity Programme of his administration,' the statement said.
