Why APC Chieftain Says the ruling party may suffer defeat in Kwara State

The race for the 2023 governorship election in Kwara State has already begun as the two main political parties in the country are working to win the State. 

While the ruling party in the State, the All Progressives Congress is working to maintain its dominance in Kwara State, the Peoples Democratic Party is also working to return to power in Kwara State.

Recall that PDP was controlling Kwara State before the opposition party lost the state to APC due to ‘O To Ge’ movement that ended Saraki and PDP's dominance in the State.

However, available indicators have shown that the ruling party may lose Kwara State to APC in 2023 if the ongoing internal crisis rocking the party is not well managed and resolved amicably. 

The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress is divided into two factions. While one faction is loyal to the incumbent Governor, AbdulRahman-AbdulRazaq, the other faction is loyal to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

According to a report by PUNCH, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Kwara State has revealed that APC may suffer defeat in the State in 2023 if urgent steps were not taken to address the internal crisis rocking the party in the State. 

The Chieftain of APC, Chief Sunday Oyebiyi, who is loyal to Alhaji Lai Mohammed disclosed that urgent actions need to be taken for APC to avoid losing Kwara State in 2023.

There are two major thing he mentioned as he cautioned that the ruling party may lose Kwara due to the internal crisis rocking the party in the State.

Firstly, the Chieftain of APC alleged that the incumbent Governor of the State, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, is navigating the party back to Egypt instead of the promised land the ‘O To Ge’ revolution promised the people of Kwara State in 2019 governorship election.  

He explained that the state Governor failed to recognize the contributions of the people who helped him to defeat PDP in the 2019 governorship election in Kwara State. He noted that Alhaji Lai Mohammed did his best for APC to win Kwara State but the Governor has failed to recognize his contributions.

Secondly, the APC chieftain also alleged that the Kwara State Governor is not always available to administer the state which and has lost touch with the people.

The APC chieftain believed that these actions may affect the ruling party in the 2023 governorship election in Kwara State unless urgent actions are taken by the party.
