Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is running for reelection on

Similarly, Senator Makanjuola Ajadi, the candidate for the Alliance Democratic Congress (ADC) in Kwara South, was among those who have recently boarded the governor’s political train. Ajadi had a falling out with the governor in the APC over an intractable political crisis at the time, but he has since reconciled his differences with the governor.
Senator Suleiman Makanjuola Ajadi made the announcement that he will collaborate with other progressives in the state to ensure that Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrahman is re-elected. According to the senator, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrahman is still the best candidate for Kwara State for the next four years.

The senator said in a statement on Tuesday that he and his team have made the decision to return to the APC because he is not given to politics of zero-sum and perpetual bitterness. The statement was released on Tuesday.

“My supporters and I have put the National Election in the past where it belongs,” the candidate said. It is not possible to make the accusation that we have not utilized our democratic rights. Nevertheless, it is time for democratically-inclined people to move on.

As a consequence of this, I am giving my supporters the following directive: “I am hereby directing my supporters to work conscientiously for the re-election of Governor Abdulrazaq who, in all fairness and in the estimation of the overwhelming majority of our people, has done his best within the circumstances of our state to rebuild Kwara State to an enviable height. ” ”

According to the statement, “He is consequently the best man on the ballot for the office of Governor, and I am directing my supporters and the people of our state to support him because he is running for the office of Governor.”

“I also have the mandate of the majority of our candidates, particularly those from Kwara South, to announce our return and collapse of our structures into the APC,” he said. “This is especially true for those from Kwara South.”

“I have come to the conclusion that any vote against the Governor at this time would amount to setting our state back several decades, regardless of the misgivings that anyone may have. This is the conclusion that I have come to.

Because I do not want to be on the wrong side of history, I have decided to make this public declaration of support for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq’s bid for reelection.

According to the reports, Alh Ope Saraki was upset with his brother Dr. Bukola Saraki because Dr. Bukola refused to support him in any way during the election. Alh Ope Saraki was reported to have lost even in his polling booth during the most recent election.

It particularly irked Alh Ope that because Dr. Bukola Saraki was not on the ballot, there was no reason he shouldn’t help him in the election. As a result, he is said to have conceded to Governor Abdulrazaq, who asked for his support, and offered his assistance in the election.
