BREAKING: Kwara APC Gubernatorial Candidate, Abdulrasaq In Early Mess


The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq appears to be playing his usual card to whittle down every effort at wrestling power from Saraki dynasty in the state.

A check by this medium on Thursday indicated that instead of the APC gubernatorial candidate to return to Ilorin after the widely publicized truce brokered by President Buhari in Abuja early this week, Abdulrahman is busy changing names of legislative candidates in Abuja.

Abdulrahman according to sources insisted that, Ismail Tijani that won convincingly during the primaries be dropped for a candidate that came distant fifth during the primaries. The preferred candidate is one Gbenga Power, who actually didn't belong neither in the old APC nor the newly joined PDP stock.

Mr. Gbenga Powers has always dropped Mr. Rotimi Ameachi name as his backer. The same influence he has used to win some projects in the state ministry of sports in the last couple of years when the latter introduced him to Dr. Bukola Saraki.

Our source alleged that Mr. Gbenga Towers is one of the Saraki's hands in Kwara APC.

However, this medium could not ascertain what Alhaji Abdulrasaq stands to gain in changing candidates after he emerged under a rather controversial and acrimonious circumstances.

Our investigations revealed that, Abdulrasaq is interested in changing more than two already decided house of assembly in Kwara Central and two federal house of representatives in Kwara South respectively.

Our source: "He is bent on having his way in Ilorin West and South local government areas. He wants the winner of the Offa/Oyun/Ifelodun constituency removed from Erinle in Oyun LGA to Ifelodun. While Gbenle Adeyemi will suffer in Oke-Ero/Isin/Ekiti/Irepodun because the man is from a less populated area".

"While our source alleged that, Abdulrasaq is working to extend Dr. Saraki's hold on the state as a business partner by promoting weaker candidates in critical areas, we tried to get his views on those weighty allegations but calls to his phones were unanswered. He never returned them too".

"The same way ENACT was the people's candidate in Kwara South and was replaced by another candidate."

Political pundits posited that, the APC gubernatorial candidate and his party may not travel in the electioneering process as his candidate is bent in causing more crisis within the fragile and nascent assembly.
