2023: Brother Rejects Bolaji Abdullahi's Senatorial Ambition, Joins APC Campaign Council

By Adedayo Said

Muhammad Abdullahi, a younger sibling of the Peoples Democratic Party candidate in the forthcoming Kwara Central Senatorial election, Bolaji Abdullahi, has been named a deputy director of the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign in the North Central zone.

According to the list released by the Presidential Campaign Councilof the ruling party, Muhammad is the deputy director of National Youths Mobilisation in the zone.

Muhammad, on this assignment, will work on the APC campaign across the six states including Kwara state, ensuring that the party emerges victorious in all polls. 

By extension, the APC campaign official is expected to deliver his ward, Ubandawaki, for contestants in the state including Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and Mallam Saliu Mustapha, the APC Kwara Central Senatorial flag bearer who is contesting against his brother.

It remains to be seen how the APC chieftain, believed to be unapologetically loyal to the party, would manage the conflict of interest.

Abdullahi's woes at the home front is also worsened by other controversies that have continued to undermine his campaign.

More than before, Abdullahi's contribution to the community while in public service is being questioned and the ruling party has continued to intensify its campaign in the area.

Recently, the Ubandawaki for Saliu Mustapha and AbdulRaman 2023 support group held a massive campaign rally for Mustapha and Gov. AbdulRahman in Unbandawaki Ward. 

The group, led by the APC ward Chairman, Oba Alabi Alaro, moved from Saladin Oke-Ebo down to Pakata Roundabout, Ubandawaki Compound, Alaya, shooto to Anifowoshe in Ilorin, chanting names of the APC candidates.

Oba Alabi pledged their undiluted support for the victory of the two candidates, adding that Bolaji Abdullahi and other opponents will lose by a wide margin. 

Also speaking with the newsmen, the Coordinator of the rally, Mallam Muritala Alowonle enjoined the people of the ward and Kwarans to vote for the APC candidates in forthcoming elections, expressing confidence in Mustapha's ability to emerge victorious over the PDP flag bearer for the Senatorial District, Abdullahi.
