Why Kwara North Rejected Shuaib Yahman In 2023 - Baba Jiya

The Kwara North Senatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the 2023 general elections and the Haske of Etsu Patigi in Patigi Local Government Area of Kwara State, Dr. Kolo Baba Jiya has given reasons why the Kwara North Senatorial District flatly rejected the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections, Alhaji Shuaib Yahman.

Jiya, who was a guest speaker today at the 41st Media Parliament of the Kwara State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in ilorin, the state capital, said the timing of the ambition of the PDP candidate was wrong in view of the mood of the north as at that time.

"Alhaji Shuaib Yahman is a good man that came at the wrong time, but the time is right now."

According to him, the unity within the Kwara North Senatorial District has increased compared to previous time when the PDP candidate was contesting.

He therefore called on Political Stakeholders in the state to concede the 2027 governorship ticket to candidates from Kwara North senatorial district.

However, he advised the people of the state to refrain from engaging in politics driven by financial interests when making their decisions in the 2027 elections.
