The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State has thrown its weight behind the commendable steps taken thus far by the Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed-led administration to encourage and empower the traditional institution in the State to optimally perform its invaluable and strategic roles in the sustenance of peace and in the development of Kwara State.
In a statement signed on Wednesday by its Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari, the party noted with delight that the strategy of consistent engagement adopted by Kwara State Government and the traditional institution, and other forms of support rendered to the traditional institution in Kwara State have started yielding positive results.
The party also denied knowledge of any group known as All Progressives Youth Forum (APYF) in Kwara State.
“We consider it necessary to denounce the nonexistent group because an uninformed press statement was issued with the fictitious identity with a wish to fan ember of discord between the Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed-led administration and the traditional institution in Kwara State on one hand and seek to incite the people against the government on the other hand.
“We, therefore, urge the Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed-led administration to dismiss the content of the said press statement as uninformed and fake as it didn’t emanate from members of our party. Also, we urge our ever-focused Governor to remain focussed on the implementation of the various developmental projects and programmes that the APC-led government is presently undertaking in Kwara State.
“Finally, we call on members of our party and the general public to discountenance the said statement issued by a faceless organization unknown to the APC or its leadership in the state”, the party said.
