Kwara PDP, APC clash over Buhari’s scheduled visit for Tinubu’s rally

All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign council in Kwara, Friday, said the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will cry out its heart next month when President Muhammadu Buhari is billed to commission some legacy projects executed by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

The ruling party while reacting to PDP campaign council’s comment that President Buhari would commission some ‘rush’ projects during his visit next Tuesday for presidential rally of APC flag bearer, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said  Buhari is coming next Tuesday to just flag off the presidential campaign in the state.

The APC-PCC said a different date would be announced for a grand commissioning of different impactful projects such as the largest intensive care unit facility in North Central, which is the first functional ICU facility in the state.

The APC campaign council spokesperson and Commissioner for Finance, Mrs. Olasumbo Florence Oyeyemi, made the clarification in a statement in Ilorin.

“The PDP is understandably jittery because it has exhausted its arsenals of empty catch phrases and propaganda that fail to inspire the electorate as a result of its horrible records in Kwara state.

“Worse still is the fact that the PDP campaign council is led by persons notorious for their roles in diverting public resources for their own use. They are understandably pained that this governor is now committing savings from bogus consultancy money that they were diverting to their private pockets to building a befitting headquarters for the KWIRS, which will have different office spaces for commercial purposes and benefit the state.

“The PDP and its leaders are jittery and totally bereft of ideas, knowing they have nothing meaningful to campaign against a governor that has not only cleansed their mess like President Buhari did in 2015, but has in fact gone ahead to place Kwara State on the national map as one of the most progressive states in the country in Human Capital Development Indices (HCDIs), such as in provision of healthcare, basic education, gender inclusion, youths empowerment, rural urban development, and support for the vulnerable and the elderly,” she said.
