OPINION:2 Main Reasons Why Abdulrahman & APC believe That They Can Win Kwara Struggle Against Saraki

One of the most interesting state elections in the year 2019 was Kwara state election. It was a drag in power tussle between Bukola Saraki of PDP and Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of APC. However, one might barely believe that it would be easy for Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq to get over Bukola Saraki's capacity in the state, as he has been in control of the state in terms of capacity over the years. Bukola Saraki as an ambitious politician may want to strike back and reactivate his capacity in subsequent elections, but Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on the other hand will also try everything within his capacity in ensuring that he did not loose his capacity to him as it is such that can even send him into political oblivion. 

PDP has been in control of Kwara state overtime, but the narrative was changed in the year 2019 with the struggle led by Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and his faction in APC. They were able to retire Bukola Saraki's faction in the state politics, and you will agree with me that they will also like to rule for more years if at all they will loose the power again. Hence, APC government in Kwara may not readily make things easy for other political parties in the state to outshine them most especially the camp of Bukola Saraki.

Below are Two reasons why Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq's camp believes that they can win over Saraki in Kwara struggle;

- Power of incumbency: we all know the power that is always accompanied with an incumbent governor. This is to say that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has the control of the state authorities and it's resources as the number one citizen of the state by virtue of the office he occupies. Meanwhile, Bukola Saraki on the other hand is not an office holder presently, and such will barely give him room to drag capacity against Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and his APC faction in Kwara. 

- APC's capacity in the state: the individuals that made up APC in Kwara state are notable politicians who have capacity and filled with resources compared to those in PDP that Bukola Saraki belong to. You will further agree with me that politics is always a game of number and the majority are always capable of changing the narrative to suit their demand. This is a plus to APC faction in Kwara state, and it is such that can be activated constructively to win Kwara struggle in the subsequent elections.

2023 election is another opportunity for APC and PDP to test run the capacity they have built overtime. Bukola Saraki will want to get over the state politics again, but it's quite certain that Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and APC will barely make things easy for him an his factions.
