The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, has met President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
Speaking to State House correspondents after the meeting, the APC Guber candidate stated that Buhari has directed the party to take over Kwara state in 2019.
Abdulrasaq said Buhari’s marching order would be democratically implemented by the party as the people of the state had since expressed their readiness to make the Saraki political dynasty a history in the state.
He said: “Kwara has become a battlefield now. As you can see, we came to see Mr President having gone through a very competitive process of primaries.
“We went through the direct primary in which about 100,000 party faithful voted
“We had our difficulties but we came to tell him that all is well. We are in unison and he has given us marching orders to go and take Kwara.
“So, Saraki is history because we are looking at (Kwara) Government House.”
