2023: Kwara APC Inaugurates 193 Ward Chairmen

All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State has inaugurated its 193 ward chairmen elected in the last ward congresses conducted by the party on August 1, 2021.

Speaking at the event in Ilorin on Friday, the state caretaker committee chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Samari, charged the new ward chairmen to work towards achieving unity among every member of the party.

“Please make friends with your people. You are there representing your own individual wards. When you get back to your wards, make peace and try to work together with others who must have in one way or the other vied for this position with you. We want unity in our party. We hope as the leaders at the grassroots you should continue to preach and exhibit unity at your respective wards,” he said.

Also speaking, the state deputy governor, Mr Kayode Alabi, advised the ward chairmen to be loyal to the party and exhibit love among members of different tendencies.

“There is a time to be born. There is also a time to plant and there is a time to harvest. There is a time to die. There is a time to weep. There is a time to cry and there is a time to rejoice. Right now you are rejoicing and I thank God for that. There is a time to hate and there is a time to love. Now it is time to show love.

“You just took an oath now to be loyal to the party. Let us remain loyal to the party. As leaders, you must not take sides. But remember that everything that is good comes from God. Don’t allow anybody to manipulate you to take

care of his interest above that of the party. This is the time to love everybody in your wards. My understanding of politics is to be able to cohabit with the good, bad and ugly. The more the merrier. What I hear in party politics in the state is that ‘that person, this person is not part of us. Don’t let us do politics with him. In politics, you can convert your enemies into your friends.”

“We should not send people away from the party. Everybody has his own characteristic ways of life. We should try as leaders to manage the good, the bad and the ugly. I beg you in the name of God, learn how to manage people.”

“I urge you to open your minds to be fathers to everybody in your wards. I am begging you. There is still opposition within and opposition outside. The most dangerous people in life are the ones very close to us. And we have some people that are very close to us; who are still with us but they are not with us. They are still in the APC.

“It is very easy to pick information from you and use it to strike against us. Behave like leaders. Don’t go outside here and say that I am now in charge. That is not the way leaders behave. I am appealing to you not to cross the line because you now have powers as you have.

“There is a time to fight and a time for peace. This is the time for peace in Kwara state APC. Your character and behaviour in life will determine how far you go as a leader.”
