He attributed the victory to Almighty God and the people of Kwara State, who he said truly wanted freedom from the political rulership of Saraki dynasty and ensured that it happened.

The minister spoke, yesterday, in Ilorin at a briefing attended by all the newly elected members of National Assembly, party leaders and supporters to celebrate the party’s victory.

He, however, urged the electorate to sustain the victory and consolidate on it by voting massively for the party’s governorship candidate, Abdulrahzaq Abdulrahman, and that of the state Assembly in the next elections.

According to him,”permit me to use this opportunity to give gratitude to God, without whom this victory would not have been possible, and to most immensely thank the good people of Kwara State.

“No single individual can claim credit for this victory. It belongs to the people of Kwara State. All of us, the party leadership, were fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time to lead the process.

“But the ultimate credit goes to the people who resoundly said no to PDP last Saturday.

“When we won the by-election for Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero federal constituency on November 17, 2018, I said it was the beginning of the crumbling of the Berlin Wall of Kwara politics.

“Today, the Berlin Wall of Kwara politics has fallen. The chain has been broken. The good people of Kwara have ensured that.”

The minister, however, urged Abdulrahzaq, who he described as incoming governor, to declare February 23 of every year as the Day of Liberation for Kwara State immediately he was sworn in May 29, 2019.

Describing the outcome of the election as 10-0 against PDP in the state, he said: ”As you must be aware by now, the official results of last Saturday’s National Assembly elections in Kwara State have been announced. It is a clean sweep for our party, All Progressives Congress, APC.

“All three seats in the Senate and all six in the House of Representatives were won by our party. The match between our party and PDP ended 10-0 (1 President, 3-0 Senatorial, 6-0 House of Reps).

Kwara is free

“With the outcome of last Saturday’s elections, I can now conveniently say that Kwara is free! Free from a choking and pauperizing political hegemony of a self-imposed dynasty.

“Never again will Kwarans be treated like slaves in their own land. Enough is Enough. O To Ge.

“Fired on by perhaps the most impactful, three-word political slogan ever in the history of party politics in this land, O to ge Kwarans have confirmed the saying that the power of the people is much stronger than the people in power. Thank you, Kwarans.

“Not a single shot was fired throughout Kwara. No one snatched ballot box. It was an atmosphere of conviviality. It was a sharp departure from what used to be in the state.

“It confirms what we have been saying, that when there is adequate security, there will be a level playing ground for all the parties, and for all Kwarans.”

He, however, commended the security agencies for their hard work, dedication to duty and professionalism.

The minister particularly commended all members and supporters of his party across the state, as well as all the leaders of the party at all levels.
