* AbdulRazaq

By Steve Oni, Ilorin

Former Special Adviser on Political Matters to the Kwara state Governor, Alhaji Saadu Salahu has advanced reasons why every development oriented and well meaning Kwaran should support the administration of Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

Salahu, a media guru, said AbdulRazaq ventured into politics with the sole aim and avowed determination to develop the state to an enviable status among its peers across Nigeria.

He spoke during a sensitisation programme on the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership revalidation and registration exercise for the people of Ibagun ward in Ilorin East Local Government Area of the state.

Salahu equally urged all APC members in the state to support the new leadership of the party in the state under the chairmanship of Alhaji Abdullahi Sanmari, saying the combination of Governor AbdulRazaq and Sanmari would bring about rapid socioeconomic development of every part of the state.

Salahu maintained that Governor AbdulRazaq is a selfless and visionary leader, and added that  Sanmari is equally a grassroot politician who has passion for development .

He stated that the APC membership registration/revalidation exercise which begins on Tuesday in all the 193 wards in Kwara State and the rest of Nigeria is to give opportunity to all progressive - minded Nigerians especially youths and women to take ownership of the largest ruling party in Africa.

The former Special Adviser urged all interested members to take advantage of the exercise and get registered.

He stressed the need for both the officials and members to conduct themselves orderly in order to ensure a hitch free exercise .
