The Kwara State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Ishola Balogun Fulani has insisted that decampees from the opposition parties to the ruling All Progressives Congress must follow due process.
The APC Chairman noted that the Party is waxing stronger in the state, especially with the mass decampees from the opposition parties to the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state.
According to him ” all the decampees would not be allowed to move to the ruling party through the state level, but through the ward level, anybody that wants to decamp to the APC must follow due process through the ward level”.
” Our party is a progressive one, we must accommodate decampees, but they must pass through the ward level before we can allow them in our party”, he insisted
Balogun Fulani also directed all the Party’s leaders in the Senatorial, Local and Wards to always hold regular meeting of the party.
The APC Chairman said this at the weekend in Ilorin, the State Capital at the Kwara Central Senatorial District Stakeholders meeting, held at the Party’s secretariat along Ipata Oloje, Ilorin.
Balogun Fulani explained that the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki through his commitment and intervention,had facilitated the reconstruction of all the poor federal roads within the state and those that linked the state to neighbouring states, saying that work had commenced on some of the road projects.
The APC Chairman, said the Senate President had been using his position to attract federal projects to the state to enable the people of the state enjoy good governance and dividends of democracy.
In his remarks, the Kwara Central Senatorial Chairman of the Party, Alhaji Jimoh Adesina, appreciated the efforts and commitments of the Senate President towards ensuring a better Nigeria, especially in the discharge of his legislative affairs.
