Seven political parties today agreed to work for the All Progressives Congress in Saturday’s bye-election for the Ekiti/Isin/Irepodun/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency seat of Kwara State. The seat became vacant following the death, recently, of Funke Adedoyin who had represented the constituency.
The political parties were led by their leaders to adopt the APC candidate, Mr. Raheem Olawuyi, at a ceremony in Omu-Aran, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state.
The seven political parties are Peoples Progressives Party, National Action Council and New Progressives Movement. Others are Peoples Redemption Party, National Democratic Liberty Party, National Conscience Party and the United Democratic Party.
A leader of PPP in the state, Mr. Kayode Banji, described Olawuyi as “a trusted and reliable progressive who shares the same principles and ideals” of his party.
Earlier, Olawuyi had commended the seven political parties for their unparalleled show of love and solidarity with the progressive movement. The APC candidate promised to run an all-encompassing administration where all stakeholders would have a sense of belonging in moving the constituency forward.
