Saraki will not return, says APC senatorial aspirant

A senatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from Kwara Central, Comrade Esinrogunjo Musbau, has expressed the need for a change in leadership and style of politics in Kwara State.

Speaking with journalists at his campaign office, last Thursday, in Ilorin, the senatorial hopeful expressed his dislike the way politics is centred round just one personality, Senator Bukola Saraki, whom he described as a far cry from his father’s style of politics.

He said that his former leader, late Dr. Olusola Saraki, was a man of the people, whose political structure grew because of his love for the masses and their welfare.

“Dr Bukola Saraki plays self-centred politics. He parades selfish politicians as himself without caring for how the masses fare,” Musbau alleged.

He explained that he decided to decamp to the APC because he cannot be in the same party as Saraki.

He was of the opinion that even Kwara civil servants cannot boast of any dividend of democracy under the leadership of Saraki and the present governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed.

He alleged that he had always defeated Saraki but his victory upturned at the polls because of the senate president’s influence.

“In the last local government election, my supporter who vied for the local government chairmanship position, polled 26,000 votes but it was upturned for Saraki’s supporter giving us only six thousand and the rest for his people. I have all the results with me, we beat him hands down. I will beat him anytime again because Ilorin is fed up with him. His style of leadership differs from how his father did it.”
