The leadership of the Kwara State House Assembly is one of the criteria Kwarans are hoping to use as a yardstick to determine the difference between those voted for and those voted against.
Several interest groups have spring up to throw their support for and against several candidates they deem fit to lead the law making body of the state. Some have made their judgement based on affiliations while some have cling unto equity and fairness as they believe power must not be a birthright of only certain senatorial districts.
If latest development is anything to go by after the party placed embargo on public comments on the aforementioned matter of KWHA leadership then it won’t be out of place to say the All Progressive Congress have decided to zone Speakership of the house to Kwara North.
In what looks like a sign of not taking anything for granted, Kwara North elected lawmakers today met and adopted a consensus candidate.
Fidelinfo reliably gathered that Hon Salihu Yakubu Danladi elected to represent Ilesha/
Gwanara State constituency is the favored one by his colleagues after critical consideration of all developmental and political factors.
Hon. Salihu Yakubu Danladi representing Ilesha/Gwanara State Constituency of Baruten Local Government as the preferred candidate to lead the 9th Assembly.
