By Saka Laaro, Ilorin

A group of young crusaders in the Kwara state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), called, Coalition of Kwara APC Young Stakeholders (CKAYS), has declared support for the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, and all the party’s National Assembly and 24 State Assembly candidates in the forthcoming general elections.

Speaking with journalists in Ilorin on Wednesday,             Acting Coordinator of the forum, Hon. Ahmed Mahmud, said that members have put in place measures to ensure effective mobilisation for the party’s candidates for door-to-door canvassing/campaign across the 193 wards in the 16 Local Government Areas of the State.

The group, which said that Tinubu has qualities required of a leader to take the country out of woods, added that, “We are strongly behind the candidature of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu with a great sense of optimism for victory at the polls this 2023 general elections.

“We will ensure that 2023 general elections are conducted smoothly and hitch-free after which Tinubu will emerge as the next President of Nigeria and all other candidates listed above.

“On this note, we are also calling on the well meaning Kwarans to disregard the purported lies spread across the country by opposition that the change of currency is planned to create hardship in the country.

“As responsible citizens, who believe in economic prosperity of our country, it will be counterproductive if we oppose a monetary policy made by financial institution of the country, hence, our groups stand for any policy that doesn’t contradict the laws of the land. We will ensure that agents of lies don’t triumph over well-meaning Kwarans who are with us in this journey.

“We are calling on the security agencies, party stalwarts, and comrades to be vigilant/watch out for more unscrupulous elements who are hellbent on causing disharmony by trying to overheat the political space using a fake identity, fake information, and fake address as election draws nearer.

“The fulcrum of our campaigns was and is still the consolidation of good governance and accountability which Governor AA (Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq) and other candidates have envisaged to our dear State. We have consistently preached against voters coercion, We have voiced our stand against votes buying, voters intimidation, and politicisation,” the group said.
