CRISIS HIT KWARA APC OVER GOV. AHMED’S SENATORIAL AMBITION

Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed’s ambition to become a senator, representing Kwara South after completing his second term in office is fueling crisis in the Kwara chapter of the All Progressive Congress(APC), OrijoReporter exclusively gathered. sen. rafiu ibrahim

The crisis, which started as a mere quibble over ambition between Gov. Ahmed and the incumbent senator, who represents Kwara South in the senate, Rafiu Ibrahim, has gained full-blown momentum.

Before occupying his present office, Senator Ibrahim was a member of the House of Representatives. Now like then, he hardly contributes to discourse in the senate but recently announced his presence as a senator when he lent his voice to the planned suspension of Kabiru Marafa, a senator representing Zamfara Central who accused the senate of corruption.

Nursing the ambition to return to the senate come 2019 despite his shortcoming, Senator Ibrahim is locked in a battle against Gov. Ahmed over who between them will emerge as the senatorial candidate of APC in Kwara South in three years’ time.

The battle became fierce last week OrijoReporter was told when Senator Ibrahim’s loyalist and APC’s youth coordinator in the state, Samson Bada was one of 118 suspected cultists declared wanted by the state police command.

The inclusion of Samson, a son of an ex-chairman of a local government in the state, in the list of suspected cultists was blamed on Gov. Ahmed by Senator Ibrahim’s camp.

The allegation was that Gov. Ahmed influenced the inclusion of the APC youth leader in the list so as to clamp down on those supporting Senator Ibrahim’s return come 2019.
