Factional APC Leaders loyal to Saraki resign in Kwara
NEWS DIGEST – Ten members of Alhaji Ishola Balogun-Fulani-led executive of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, including the state Women Leader Ramat Oganija and the state Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Buhari Sulyman, have resigned their appointments with immediate effect.
The Kwara Central Zonal Chairman of APC, Alhaji Jimoh Adesina, disclosed this to newsmen in Ilorin.
He said that other APC officers that have resigned their appointments included Mohammed Halliru (Asst. Welfare Secretary), Isiaka oniwa (North Senatorial Chairman), Jimoh Adesina (Central Senatorial Chairman), Katum Mohammed (Organizing Secretary), Ramat Ibrahim (Financial Secretary), Jinatu ibrahim (North Women Leader), Atiku Abdurahman (North Senatorial Chairman) and Sunkanmi Ereoye (South Senatorial Youth Leader).
In his letter of resignation, the erstwhile Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Sulyman, said his resignation was occasioned by an alleged “indirect fuelling of crises in Kwara APC chapter by the national leadership of the party”.
He added that there was also lack of reward system in the party, which “we toiled to build from the scratch”.
All efforts to get the chairman of the party in the state, Hon. Balogun-Fulani, for his comment on the development proved futile as the time of filing this report.
Though, the national leadership of APC had dissolved the Balogun-Fulani-led executive of APC in Kwara State, an Ilorin High Court had nullified that decision and restrained the chairman of the caretaker committee put in place by the the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa, from parading himself as the party’s chairman in the state.
This is coming as Saraki officially declared to run for Nigerian President.
