Kwara APC preaches unity, perseverance among members



The Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara, Alhaji Bashir Bolarinwa, on Wednesday called on party members in the state to imbibe unity, perseverance and remain dedicated to the party’s principles and ideals for development.

Bolarinwa made the appeal during the party’s stakeholders meeting in Omu-Aran, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state, saying the party cannot afford to lag behind in future elections.

He claimed that the same spirit of dedication, perseverance and togetherness in the face of uncertainty gave the party the desired victories during the Nov. 17 by-election as well as the 2019 general elections.

According to him, it is only with collective efforts of genuine members across the state that would assist the party to sustain the feat recorded in those two historic elections.

He said the stakeholders meeting across the 16 local government areas of the state was to afford the executive express its appreciation to members for their loyalty that resulted in the party’s past victories.

The chairman described the noticeable division in the party as the handiwork of some unscrupulous elements who are bent on promoting their personal gains against the party’s overall best interest.

Bolarinwa said APC’s executive was not against members breaking into forums and associations with genuine intention of promoting oneness and unity toward attracting new members.

He, however, warned that such forums and associations will not be allowed to be antagonise the party’s principles and ideals.

“We all remember vividly that the last two elections won by the party were not achieved on a platter of gold but a product of selflessness, unity, dedication and perseverance among individual members and groups.

“We as a party then was an underdog in terms of financial capability and superiority compared to our opposition but with efforts of people like Alhaji Lai Mohammed and other genuine members we came out victorious.

“So we are here today to remind us that its only with the same mindset and spirit we can sustain our hard won victories in moving the party to the next and desired level,” he said.

The APC chairman said the attack on his entourage during a tour of Moro Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday was a product of misinformation and an attempt to cause unnecessary disaffection in the party.

He urged the gathering to be wary of sycophants and antagonists, saying “you should be resolute in contributing your quota toward the growth, progress and the development of the party manifestoe across the wards and councils”.

Mr Ademola Adeoti, thebAPC Chairman in Esie-Ijan Ward, thanked the state cChairman for the interaction, describing it as beneficial and timely.

Mr John Adefila, the APC Youth Leader in Irepodun LGA of the state, urged the APC state executive to accord the youths more recognition in the party’s programmes and decision making.

Contributing, Mr Yemi Aransiola, the APC Chairman in Irepodun LGA, thanked members for honouring the meeting in large numbers and pledged loyalty to the Bolarinwa-led administration in the state.
