2019 Elections: Kwara will not be handed over to Lagos, Abuja paymasters- Saraki

Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has said that people of Kwara State will resist plans by members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidates in the coming general elections to annex the state to South West.

“This election is not about me or our governorship candidate, Razak Atunwa. It’s about this state, our culture and tradition. Time will tell about whatever we do today. We go back to PDP because we need a government that will care for our people, gives jobs to our people. We should not vote a candidate whose DG said he does not care, he does not know,” he said.
