APC holds pro-Buhari rally in Ilorin

THOUSANDS of supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state, led by the party’s governorship candidate in the coming elections, Alhaji Abdul-Rahman AbdulRazaq, trooped out to major areas of the Ilorin metropolis at the weekend to mobilise voters ahead of the general election.

The rally saw thousands of residents lining the streets along motorcade and heavy trucks conveying the APC campaigners amid campaign slogan of the party and shouts of Sai Buhari.

Tribune online gathered that the campaign train took off from Fate end of the metropolis and crisscrossed highly populated areas like Pata market, Gambari, Okelele, Abayawo, Omoda and terminated at Pakata where the candidates of the party in the coming elections took turns to address electorate.

“We are committed to ending the tyranny in our state. O To Ge. We will ensure workers are paid their dues at the right time. A government that cannot account for trillions of naira of public funds cannot expect to be trusted again”, Alhaji AbdulRazaq said.

The APC governorship candidate also enjoined people to be steadfast and loyal to political struggles in the state, advising them to guard their PVCs jealously for the election.

“Their desperate attempt to incite the public against us has failed. Every student of history understands the role my father AGF AbdulRazaq SAN played in 1955 to convince the Willinks Commission on Minorities that Ilorin belonged to the Northern region. Where was Saraki in those years? Where is his sense of history?”, he said.
