Lai Mohammed behind Kwara APC crisis, says Senator
Senator Suleiman Ajadi, yesterday, alleged that crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State is traceable to the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, wanting to make himself a godfather that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq must either defer to or be stampeded.
Ajadi, a chieftain of the party, told reporters in Ilorin, the state capital, that Mohammed was using the former state chairman, Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, to destabilise the state with propaganda and anti-party activities.
He further alleged that the minister has perfected plans to either stop the party’s registration through a phantom court case or premeditated unrest using some of his loyalists in the state.
The plan, he said, include the filing of a court case on January 29 by some of his loyalists to halt the registration exercise, adding that the weak nature of the case has seen the minister instigating his loyalists to resort to self-help to stampede the committee from the national secretariat in Abuja.
Ajadi was referring to the court case originally instituted on January 29 by 11 of the minister’s loyalists, including Joseph Ijado; Bamidele Ogunbayo; Issa Fulani; Imam Abdulkadir; Morufu Olaniyi Yusuf; Salaudeen Lukman; Kerebu Fatai; Bola Ajani; Nurudeen Fasasi; Salman Shehu Babatunde and AbdulLateef Ahmed Kolawole.
The defendants in the case are the APC, Secretary of the National Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe and Abdullahi Samari Abubakar.
