NGO KNOCKS SARAKI, PDP OVER CAMPAIGN FLAG-OFF DIATRIBE

A non governmental organization, the Society for continuum of change and development (SCCD) have described the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State as a disappointment and celebration of incompetence.

This much was contained in press statement released by the group in imprint, a copy of which was made available to this medium in ilorin today, was jointly signed by its coordinator Com. Mutolib Ayobami and it’s publicity secretary Abdulateef Ibrahim.

The statement reads “the flag-off campaign that was supposed to be an avenue to engage Kwarans, take stocks of their achievements in the last 7years of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed and reel out conceived plans and manifestos for the next four years if they won the elections was sadly and disappointingly turned into a Cultural ceremony, where dancing troupe and musicians were rather entertaining the people.

“It’s instructive to note that the Party’s Gubernatorial candidate Hon. Razak Atunwa has up till this moment failed to avail the general public of his plans and manifestos for Kwara as a prospective governor, which could be a pointer to the fact that the man enmeshed in a certificate forgery controversy late last year and his party PDP, has no clear-cut visions for Kwarans and Kwara than to maintain the obnoxious hegemony.

“In a bid to hide their unsteadiness, unreadiness and unsuitability for governance, the party had procured the services of Kwara State Arts and Culture troupe to dance all day to cover for their inequities; social, political and economically.

“One would have expected a ruling party to be more issue-based and intellectually engaging rather than resorting to a show of jamboree, afterall, they have been ruling the State for the past 16 years.

“It is now getting clearer that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has accepted their failures of misruling and misrepresentation of almost two decades and this is evident by lack of clear-cut achievements and developments to canvass the people but pleadings and promises of retracing their steps.

On the claim by the National leader of the party, Dr. Bukola Saraki that the President Muhammadu Buhari led federal government have marginalised Kwara in distribution of dividends of democracy since its inception in 2015, it said “The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) should feel ashamed of their political ineptitude, ineffectiveness and lack of political goodwill to facilitate the reconstruction rehabilitations of Bode Saadu – Mokwa – Jebba road in 16 years of uninterrupted democratic ruling, a road which has been done by the good administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress ( APC) in just 3 years.

“This show of impertinence and unreadiness is a big statement of unsuitability of the People Democratic Party ( PDP) to be charged with the responsibilities of managing the affairs of Kwara State in the next four years. The clear demonstration of incapability in the last 16 years further necessitated the need for the All Progressives Congress ( APC) to be voted massively by Kwarans in the forthcoming general elections for the desired change and development for the State of Harmony” it stressed.
