Re: Kwara Assembly Putting The Cart Before The Horse

The Kwara State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Engr. Kola Shittu has missed it. Like a drunken boxer pummeled by 'unseen' opponent, the Kwara PDP and her sympathizers have continued to move from one ridiculous position to the other in a comical search for the defense of their maladministration while in government.

The deceit visited upon Kwarans which resulted in the collapse of the last administration is gradually hunting them.

Hence, Shittu's admonition in his statement under reference cannot find receptive ears among discerning Kwarans. The opportunity offered by the Kwara State House of Assembly (KWHA), to the suspended Local Government Chairmen is a genuine effort made to set the records straight. The legislative approach which is constitutional should not be fretted on myopic political consideration.

Unfortunately for Shittu, the suspended Chairmen have punctured his false claim that the invitation for questioning is an abuse of due process.

In a statement issued yesterday by the Kwara ALGON, which is the umbrella body of the elected local government Chairmen, the group reinforced the position of the KWHA, stating that the House is the arm of government that has the constitutional responsibility to invite them for questioning and as such they cannot afford to decline such invitation.

The suspended Chairmen further stated that it would be reasonable for people to desist from linking their actions with perceived betrayal of a political leader. It would be recalled that the chairmen have withdrawn their suits from court challenging their suspension by the Kwara State Government.

The chairmen have also dismissed the statement credited to the PDP that they were forced to withdraw the cases from court.

In this light, Shittu's virulent attacks should be seen as a manifestation of a failed political dynasty coming out of a traumatic situation in need of therapy.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) remains focused in pursuit of giving Kwarans the dividends of democracy and would not be distracted by such talk shops.
