Just as the serving governor of Kwara State, AbdulFatah Ahmed is about leaving office as his second term will finish in 2019, the search for who succeeds him has begun in earnest.
The Coalition of Registered Political Parties in Kwara State has urged President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki to choose the next governor of the state.
The coalition made the call in a letter written to Saraki, which was signed by its coordinator, Alhaji Ahmed Abdullahi.
The letter said, “Your Excellency Sir, the current situation being experienced is far from that which the indigenes of the state had expected. Simply put, the state is economically imbalanced in every facet of human life.
“Your Excellency Sir, without your recent intervention, the entire state would have collapsed.”
According to the coalition, its vision was to build a virile Kwara State where indigenes would always want to be and could always beat their chests as sons of the soil.
The group also said that Ambassador Abdulfatai Yahaya Seriki Gambari was their preferred choice.
“As a young man, oil and mining magnate, Ambassador Abdulfatai Yahaya Seriki has influenced so many lives positively while seeing you as a role model,” it said
