A group under the Kwara PDP known as the Kwara Support Group (KSG) has appealed to the North Central zone leadership of the party to concede its slots of the national Publicity Secretary to Kwara State on the basis of equity and justice.
Leader of the group, Olanrewaju Olokode, urged party leaders and stakeholders in the North Central to graciously reconsider the zoning arrangement of party’s national Publicity Secretary in favour of Kwara State.
Olokode also urged the leaders and stakeholders to prevail on the Benue State leadership by “reasons and brotherliness to concede the National Publicity Secretary slot to Kwara State, PDP.”
He said that Benue State had, for eight years, enjoyed the Senate Presidency, a slot zoned to the North Central Geo-political zone under the PDP arrangement.
“Also, in the 2011 and 2015 presidential elections, the Benue State produces the Zonal Coordinator, then Governor of Benue State, Gabriel Suswan. Benue has had a good fair share of North Central Zone states collective stake, Kwara State should been given this slot in spirit of friendly relationship, equity, justice and good political calculation ahead of 2019 election.”
Olokode said the position will also rally members and supporters of the party together for a reinvigorated and strong PDP in Kwara State ahead of 2019.
The PDP group also appealed to Professor Jerry Gana, Senator David Mark, Alhaji Senator Ibrahim Mantu, Senator Jonah Jang, Ex-Governors Gabriel Suswan, Idris Wada, Abdulkadir Kure, Babangida Aliyu and all other key stakeholders that have influence to support the Kwara State PDP in its quest to produce a vibrant national Publicity Secretary for the party.
