Kwara APC Chairman asked to resign immediately



The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in Kwara state, Hon. Bashiru Bolarinwa , has been advised to resign his appointment with immediate effect over alleged abuse of office and arrogance.

This followed a ‘Vote of No Confidence’ passed on him by the leadership of Orisun Igbomina, a Social Political group promoting the unity and progress of Igbomina people of the state shortly after an emergency meeting held at the weekend.

The President-General of the group, Chief Gbenga Awoyale, inna statement made available to journalists  disclosed that, “In the interest of equity, fairness and progress of, Hon. Bashiru Bolarinwa should immediately resign from office.”

He noted that, “This becomes pertinent because he was never elected in line with constitution of the party which has further strengthened him to be running the party like a personal business empire. In addition, the party chairman is arrogant and lack the capacity to run the parry democratically.

“Build up to the last general elections, Hon. Bolarinwa directed all his executives members to boycott the governorship campaign and refused to move along with the gubernatorial candidate as the case was then. His non-challant attitude and arrogance would have earned the party failure during the 2019 polls.”

Chief Awoyale added that, “We condemn in strong terms, the unruly outburst of the Chairman at a meeting between the party’s executives and Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq last week Monday. Similarly, at a reception held in honour of Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who was recently reappointed as the minister of Information and Culture, the Chairman deliberately failed to recognize the Governor who was also seated at the event.

“To worsen the matter, Hon. Borinwa, during his remarks referred to the minister as the leader of the party in the state, being the height of insubordination which is highly condemnable and unwarranted. The outbursts and antagonistic disposition of the Chairman arose from the refusal of the Governor to grant his N10 million request for a one day event in Abuja.

“This display of arrogance was largely due to the fact that he was not elected but was rather imposed. Since there is democratically elected administration in place and the Deputy Governor comes from the same local government with the Chairman it is politically expedient for the party chairmanship position to shift to another local government in Kwara South.”

Stressing further, Chief Awoyale declared total support   and loyalty of the Orisun Igbomina Organisation to the Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and commended him for taking bold steps towards delivering the state from wilderness of poverty, ill-infrastructural development,  corruption and joblessness among others as orchestrated by the last Administration.

He added that the governor has demonstrated high leadership qualities  and high sense of commitment to the growth, development and prosperity to the State of  Harmony within the shortest time.

Awoyale however praised him for his maturity and patience over the display of arrogance by the APC chairman in the state, who is not known in Kwara but Lagos and playing the scripts of some Abuja-based politicians with no impact at home.

The Orisun Igbomina boss therefore advised the Governor not to be distracted by those who are not happy with his achievements even as he appealed to him Governor to extend his road rehabilitation projects to Oro-Esie-Arandun communities and other bad roads in Kwara South, stressing that past administrations have failed to redeem their campaign promises on the dilapidated road networks.
