Re-election: Shonga APC Leaders Mobilize For AbdulRazaq

By Adedayo Said 

The re-election bid of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has received a boost with the people of Shonga Emirate in Edu Local Government Area of the state queuing behind the Governor for another term of office, and working against Alhaji Shuaibu Yaman Abdullahi, the PDP Governorship Candidate

It was learnt that the people of the community were already mobilizing for Governor AbdulRazaq, who is seeking re-election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This is coming in spite of the fact that governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Shuaib Yaman Abdullahi, hails from Shonga community.

However, our reporter gathered that seasoned politicians and APC leaders in Shonga had undertaken serious mobilisation of prospective voters for the re-election of Governor AbdulRazaq in Shonga Community and its environs.

Investigations further revealed that the APC stalwarts also canvassed people across party lines including opposition in Edu local government area, advancing reasons the incumbent Governor should be given another opportunity to govern the state.

Prominent among villages the APC leaders visited include Manuga, Faigi, Nda Kansa among others.

A former Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs in the state, Abdullahi Umar Shaba and 
Alhaji Yahaya Ibnu Yusuf were among the APC chieftains at the series of meetings held for the success of Governor AbdulRazaq in the polls.

Confirming the development, the Chairman, APC Shonga Ward 1, Hon Baba Mamu, said the APC stalwart, Alhaji Abubakar Ndakene and other APC leaders engaged the people of the areas at different places and time, canvassing votes for the incumbent Governor.

"The APC leadership in Shonga started this even before the last Presidential and National Assembly Elections, and their efforts were parts of the successes recorded by APC in Edu Local Government particularly in Shonga Community", he said.

According to him, at various stages of the meetings, members of the communities were enlightened on why they should support the re-election of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, particularly on the positive change the present administration has brought to the area through the purposeful leadership of the incumbent Governor.

When contacted, the APC Chieftain and Marafa Shonga, Alhaji Abubakar Ndakene, explained that their efforts were geared towards having Governor AbdulRazaq re-elected.
