I'm not considering PDP -Ahmed
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.
