Kwara 2019: Hausa, Fulani will never cede to southwest cabals’ agenda on Kwara – Ahmed Rabo
A former house of Assembly aspirant and managing director of Jaahi Garment links reacted to a comment by one business mogul,that Saraki and PDP should rule out the possible support of Hausa community in the forthcoming 2019 poll.
Rabo while reacting to this says, “My attention was drawn to One businesses Mogul speaking on behalf of Hausas claiming not to support Saraki even when he has no idea on the politicking in Kwara Hausa community and has never been a spoke person for the Hausa community..he can only speak for his folks and not Hausa community,I even learnt that he lives in Ondo state ”
Laying emphasy on possible support of PDP, he said, “The Hausa/Fulani community will always stand for Saraki and his party at all time, just as he stood for the community in the past,The late Olusola Saraki was once the leader of the Northern Union(NU)where he protected the interest of the Northern Nigeria admidst intimidation,Coming Back to Kwara here,Olusola Sarakis impact on Hausa Fulani community is immeasurable, The Hausa/Fulani were part of his decision making body,he recommended them for appointment,contracts and employment.The gesture which his son the current president of the Senate Dr.Bukola Saraki took over after his death.
“The current leadership of APC in Kwara should tell us where was their leader Lai Muhammad and their factional chairman Bashir Bolarinwa when the Sarakis stood by kwarans and working round the clock to ensure the peaceacful and beautiful atmosphere we are enjoying in Kwara state today,Virtually all those politicians in Kwara APC defaming Saraki today were made by Sarakis ”
He continued, “I was and Aide to the present speaker of the state house of Assembly Dr.Ali Ahmad when he was a member house of representatives, in fact I contested for the position of Kwara state House of Assembly in the forthcoming general election to represent Ilorin south constituency where I became a runner up in the consensus conducted by the party. So to some extent Saraki and his political structure has been fair to us, Our Only agitation now is for the structure to start considering the community to produce Council Chairmen,Commissioners and House of Assembly members and I believe it will soon come to reality because the Saraki I know is a listening leader who also has affinity for the Hausa/Fulani Community.”
“That the forthcoming general election is not about Saraki or PDP alone. It is glaring that some cabals from south west have a hidden Agenda on how to subjugate the good people of Kwara ,there by shortchanging their culture and characteristics and we will never allow that to happen taking cognisance of how Hausas in Ile-Ife Osun state,Agege in Lagos state and other states were inhumanly treated”
“We have since commence our sensitization and canvassing exercise across the fifteen out of sixteen local governments where we have Hausas. We are Assuring all Peoples Democratic Party candidates under the leadership of Dr. Bukola Saraki our unflinching support and loyalty. As 2019 is going to be victorious as usual”
