The Kwara Development Advancement Initiative (KADI) has taunted Yaman Abdullahi, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, telling him to register for Kwapreneur, an empowerment programme under the Kwara State Social Investment Programmes (KWASSIP) pioneered by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
The group in a statement by Lukman Abdulkadir, the Chairman, noted that it could not believe that the PDP candidate has become so broke that he couldn’t raise just N2 million to save himself from the embarrassment caused by a debt.
“We are very surprised to see Mr Yaman’s name being dragged left, right and centre on a debt that is below N2 million ($2,500). With all his conspiracy theories about the debt profile of Kwara State, Yaman is a chronic debtor? This is so ridiculous. How has Yaman done it that his business is not thriving to pay off that little amount to the extent of ending in a lawsuit? We recall that some of his party members also dragged him during the primaries over default in the financial obligations he entered with them to procure the ticket.
“We advise Yaman Abdullahi to register for Kwapreneur. If not for his age, he would perhaps have qualified for the million naira grant/loan to boost his business. The programme is a brainchild of the AbdulRazaq administration to support young business owners. It’s apolitical. One of the bootlickers of another opposition gubernatorial candidate had benefitted from the programme even when his politics didn’t at the time agree with the Governor. It’s just a pity that Yaman Abdullahi is older than the age threshold, it would have been best for him to apply, per chance, he could qualify and thereby boost his business. It’s really disgusting for his name to be dragged up and down on little amount of money despite his outlandish claim of being a businessman.
“Our advice to Mr Yaman is to look for means to clear his debt and face his business squarely. He lacks the capacity to govern a state, apart from the fact that he would be tied to the apron strings of a Governor-General waiting to devour Kwara money. He also shares similarity with the high-handed politician in question because he leeched on Kwara treasury after running the Societe Generale Bank aground. Kwarans must never allow Yaman to come and do same after leading his business to bankruptcy such that he can no longer clear a debt of $2,500,” the statement read.
2023: Kwara PDP and Fake Campaign Promises- Adebayo Faruk
Since political campaigns have begun proper, the Kwara state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has made series of fake campaign promises that Kwarans have welcomed with derision. The recent one was made by the state Publicity Secretary Mr. Tunji Moronfoye. He said PDP would restore the dignity of civil servants if given the opportunity to govern the State in 2023. In the release, he accused the Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq-led administration of making mess of civil servants’ dignity.
It’s public knowledge that it was Tunji Moronfoye’s PDP that made mess of the dignity of the state’s civil servants. PDP treated civil servants like overused clothes and made them suffer for being diligent and patriotic. It was in the Saraki’s inglorious 20 years that the civil servants were made to work for 30 days only to be paid geri-gedi salaries (amputated salaries), and sometimes no pay at all. Still, workers dare not protest the inhumaneness. Of course, Kwara PDP ruled with iron fist.
Kwara PDP didn’t only owe civil servants salaries, it also halted their promotions. PDP was in power when APC-led federal government implemented the N30,000 minimum wage but it didn’t implement it because it’s committed to desecrating the dignity of the civil servants.
Thanks to Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for revamping the dignity of civil servants since he assumed office. The civil servants are no longer in doubt if they would receive their full salaries at the end of the month. The current state government pays salaries as and when due. It implemented the N30,000 minimum wage PDP couldn’t implement. It’s promoting civil servants who are due for promotion. To encourage state’s workers, this government offers the best civil servants gifts and prizes, including a motor car.
If Mr. Tunji Moronfoye wants to be sincere with Kwarans and do away with fake campaign promises, he’ll acknowledge that the AbdulRazaq-led administration is delivering on its campaign promises to civil servants. It’s a known fact that civil servants have been better under the current state government compared to under the Saraki led People’s Democratic Party.
Like other PDP’s fake campaign promises, Tunji Moronfoye has hinted civil servants that the PDP government would return them to the sorry state Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq met them from by returning to former Governor Ahmed’s legacy of geri-gedi. This is more reason why Kwarans and most especially civil servants shouldn’t vote to have a PDP government that will inflict pains on them and comfort its party loyalists with their salaries.
