Two serving ministers from Kwara State; Lai Mohammed and Gbemisola Saraki and other stakeholders in All Progressives Congress (APC) have moved against Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
He tried to stop Hon Bashir Bolarinwa from being recognised as the Chairman of the state caretaker committee, describing the actions as illegal, illogical and unacceptable.
Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo, a Chieftain of the party addressed the press conference evening in Ilorin flanked by the representatives of Minister of State for Transportation Senator Gbemisola Saraki, the state legal adviser of the party, Barrister Oladimeji Mustapha, that of Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Ayo Obisesan.
Among the factions in the fractured APC, only the representative of Governor Abdulrahman AbdulRasaq was absent at the press conference.
Akogun Oyedepo at the time of press conference expressed concern that Governor AbdulRazaq had not invited Hon Bashir Bolarinwa for the swearing-in ceremony that will take place in Abuja tomorrow, Tuesday.
“The information at our disposal is that Governor AbdulRazaq has gone to the national headquarters of the party to urge the national caretaker committee to exempt Bolarinwa from the swearing-in ceremony on the ground that Kwara executive of 2018 was not a product of a congress.
“The weather-beaten claim of this group is that the Kwara State executive under Bolarinwa is a product of a Congress. Nothing is farther from the truth.”
