The Kwara Youths Congress, (KYC), an umbrella body of youth associations across the state on Monday issued the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), Hon. Bashiru Bolarinwa, a quit notice, urging him to resign his appointment with immediate effect.
Speaking to journalists shortly after an emergency meeting held in Ilorin today 26th of August 2019, the Spokesperson of the group, Mr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, who read the resolutions of the group, gave the party seven days ultimatum to remove Hon. Bolarinwa from office.
Ibrahim, who is also the Coordinator of Ilorin Emirate Youths Assembly, noted that, “We have carefully watched the trend of political happenings in the state in the last few days and we hereby lend our voice to corroborate the position of other stakeholders in the state who have earlier called for the party chairman’s removal.
“Hon. Bolarinwa’s greed, disloyalty attitude to Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq doesn’t portray that of a true party helmsman who is expected to foster prudence, peace, unity and prosperity among members. He has demonstrated high level of greed, indiscipline, arrogance and insubordination against the highest ruling class in the state.”
“We are urging him to retrace his step. Apologies unreservedly immediately to our governor and plead his loyalty to him so that the governor can continue to achieve is god given aim of repositioning the state without any unnecessary distraction for within.
“It won’t be out of place to state that there is urgent need for the review of the current political arrangement in the state vis a vis across party structure. Presently, The Governor is from Kwara Central and minister of state for transport, Deputy Governor and minister of information is from Kwara South, while only the Speaker of the Kwara State House Assembly is from Kwara North.
“We hereby urged the APC national leadership to urgently oust Hon. Bolarinwa and allow an experienced party man from Kwara North to replace him. Failure to heed to our demand will lead to total takeover and shutdown of the APC secretariat by our members.”
The group therefore pledged its unalloyed loyalty and support to the peaceful co-existence of Kwarans especially youths towards national consciousness and democratic advancement.
