Ahead the 2019 governorship election in Kwara State, a Non-Governmental Organisation has called on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state not to allow what it termed core politicians to replace Governor Abdulfatah come 2019.

Governor Ahmed is serving his second and final term after his first election in 2011.

The group, under the aegis of Kwara State Youth Restoration Project, in Ilorin on Wednesday submitted a  letter to the Constituency office of the Senate President appealing to him to consider an administrator par excellence rather than a politician to take over from the present governor.

It described the governor as a performer per excellence.

The Head of Research Department of the group, Comrade Yinka Dallas said in the letter that Kwara needed an administrator to take over from Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed so as to sustain and build on the current trend of development of the present administration.

It noted that such development will not allow such individual spend all the resources of the state on politics at the expense of good governance

 “Politicians of today have not been able to practice the politics that gives credence to good governance; instead, they go after their immediate interests and those of their groups.

“This has made the masses to be at the receiving end of their self-aggrandising politics, thereby denying the governed dividend of democracy and good governance”.

Describing politicians as those who could sacrifice good governance on the altar of political interest, Dallas expressed hope and assurance that the Saraki dynasty will still produce successor to incumbent, adding that it was obvious that Kwara is a state without a viable opposition and alternative.
