The National Working Committee recognized chairman of the Kwara state All Progressive Congress (APC) Bashir Bolarinwa has challenged the Senate president, Doctor Bukola saraki to test his continued popularity in the general election coming up next month.
The Chairman said Saraki’s alleged sponsorship of Balogun Fulani to cause confusion in the processes towards the election in the party notwithstanding, the Senate President will by next month know that kwarans no longer love him.
Bolarinwa, who assured kwarans of the readiness of APC to liberate the people of the state from enslavement by an individual said the Senate President by now is scared of losing noting that Saraki is very sure that kwarans are not ready for another years of slavery.
He urged the Senate President to come to the field come February with his anointed PDP candidate; Alhaji Abdulrasaq Atunwa to contest with the APC’s Abdulrasaq Abdulrahaman if he is sure of victory rather than allegedly use Balogun fulani against the wish of the people.
According to Bolarinwa , Bukola saraki has played similar game plan in the senate to become senate president but said such game will be resisted this time.
Speaking on the allegation by the Senate President that some APC thugs attacked PDP supporters in Adewole/Adeta and Pakata , Bolarinwa frowned at the allegation alleging that it was the PDP thugs that attacked their members when they saw the APC crowd during a rally in the state.
It will be recalled that an Ilorin High court recognized Balogun Fulani as the Chairman of APC even as political watchers allege an alliance with Senator Bukola Saraki ,an allegation which the senate president denies.
