Abuja –   President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed door with stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Speaking to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, the state APC governorship candidate in the 2019 general elections, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, said the president had given the party the marching order to take over the mantle of leadership in Kwara.

He said the president’s marching order would be democratically implemented by the party as the people of the state had since expressed their readiness to make the Saraki political dynasty a history in the state.

“We had our difficulties but we came to tell him that all is well. We are in unison and he has given us marching order to go and take Kwara.

“So, Saraki is history because we are looking at (Kwara) Government House,’’ he said.

In his contribution, the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiohmole, expressed the hope that the party’s candidates would emerge winners of the general elections in Kwara state.
