The candidate for Kwara North Senatorial District under the platform of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the 2023 general elections and The Haske of Etsu Patigi in Patigi Local Government Area of Kwara State, Dr. Kolo Baba Jiya has called on Political Stakeholders in the state to concede the 2027 governorship ticket to candidates from Kwara North senatorial district.
Jiya made this call while speaking during the 41st Media Parliament of the Kwara State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in ilorin, the state capital.
According to him, the unity within the Kwara North Senatorial District has increased compared to previous times.
He appealed to the residents of Kwara Central and Kwara South Senatorial Districts to rally behind Kwara North for the 2027 Gubernatorial election.
However, he advised the people of the state to refrain from engaging in politics driven by financial interests when making their decisions in the 2027 elections.
Yaman came at the wrong time…
Recalling the 2023 elections, the Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is hailed from Edu LGA in the Kwara North Senatorial district.
When asked about why the district didn’t rally behind Alh. Abdullahi Shuaibu Yaman, Jiya commented that although the PDP candidate was well-suited to govern the state, his candidacy might have emerged at the wrong time.
