laimo - Saraki: We will not give Kwara APC to double agents - Lai Mohammed

Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said that the Kwara state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will not be ceded to ‘double agents’.

Mohammed’s statements are coming a week after Senate President Bukola Saraki, also from Kwara, announced the defection of 14 senators from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

In a statement made available to PoliticsNGR, Mohammed said;

My attention has been drawn to the statement made by one Alhaji Jimoh Balogun, at a press conference in Ilorin today, questioning my membership of and contributions to the All Progressives Congress (APC)
in Kwara State.

The issue of my membership of the APC, as well as my contributions to the growth of the party in Kwara and indeed in Nigeria as a whole, is settled and not subject to any contestation. For those who may be engaging in mischief over this, the massive turnout of APC members and supporters to welcome me, during my trip home this past weekend for a stakeholders’ consultative meeting, should serve as ample confirmation.

The truth is that those who are making this allegation are the ones who need to validate their membership of our great party, since they have left no one in any doubt about their status as ‘double agents’. Alhaji Balogun is one of the three Kwara Senatorial Chairmen who recently called on their leader to take them out of the APC. As far as our members are concerned, these Janus-faced people are just waiting to crash the APC in Kwara before they escape to the other side.

What has rattled them so much, however, is our decision not to allow them to actualize their nefarious plan. That decision was concretized this past weekend when the stakeholders’ meeting resolved, among others, that the current executive committee of the APC in Kwara should be dissolved and a new congress organized at all levels to
produce a new set of party executives.

The stakeholders also want those who got various appointments under the pretext of being APC members to resign immediately or be fired.

Now that the wheat has been separated from the chaff, APC members and supporters in Kwara are determined to strengthen the party, open its doors to hordes of those willing to join and reposition it ahead of the 2019 general elections, with a view to delivering the state to President Muhammadu Buhari. On this, there is no going back.
