The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday denied rumours gaining ground that the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki was interfering in the affairs of the state government.
The chairman of APC in the state, Ishola Balogun-Fulani made the clarification at a news conference in Ilorin.
According to him, Saraki had at no time interfered in the day to day running of the affairs of the state.
He said Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed had been in charge of the state and had been running its affairs diligently.
The party chairman added that the party was delighted that the governor had been performing his duties creditably well to the satisfaction of the people of the state.
Balogun-Fulani said the party had passed a vote of confidence on Governor Ahmed for excellent performance.
He added: “We want to correct the insinuation that the absence of our leader and Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has been affecting the running of the affairs of the state.
“We want to say unequivocally that Dr. Saraki had never interfered in the running of the state. Whenever he comes home, he only attends to party matters and this is done openly at the ‘Charity House’ where most party members are present.”
“We are happy and proud to note that our amiable governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed has been running the state excellently well. This is the reason why we passed a vote of confidence on him.
“So, we urge the good people of Kwara State to ignore those, who are peddling the unfounded rumour and continue to support the administration of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.”
On the seeming delay in the appointment of commissioners, special advisers, the chairman said the situation was not peculiar to Kwara State alone, noting that there were states in the South- West and even in the North that were yet to constitute their cabinets.
However, let me assure the people of the state that preparations are in top gear to appoint credible people as commissioners and advisers,” he said.
