Lai Mohammed Says APC Win Signals Collapse Of “Berlin Wall’ Of Hegemony Politics In Kwara 

Yemisi Izuora 

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, declared that the All Progressive Congress, APC, has finally collapsed the ‘Berlin Wall’ of hegemony politics in Kwara State.

The Minister, who is the leader of the APC in Kwara, said the party’s

brooms have swept the state clean of all traces of hegemony politics,

after the party won all 24 House of Assembly seats, all three

senatorial seats, all six House of Representatives seats, the

governorship and the presidential elections in the state.

”The result is 35-0! Our brooms have swept the state clean,” he

said, tracing the long battle for the emancipation of Kwara to Nov.

17th 2018, when the party won the by-election for the

Ekiti/Oke-ero/Irepodun/Isin federal constituency.

Thanking the ‘long-suffering’ people of Kwara for their hard work,

sacrifices and determination that culminated in the victory, after

they rallied under the ‘O To Ge (enough is enough) movement, Alhaji

Mohammed said never again will anyone enslave Kwarans under the guise

of dynasty or hegemony politics

He said God made the massive victory possible, and thanked the

security agencies, the leaders of the party at state and national

levels as well as President Muhammadu Buhari whose leadership and

unflinching support, he said, propelled the APC to victory.

The Minister said the victory transcends Kwara State, adding: ”It is

a victory for all advocates of good governance everywhere. It is the

triumph of good over evil, no matter how long it takes…and a hard

blow to those who willfully turn the public treasury into their

personal piggy banks.”

He said, however, that with the victory, the real work has just begun,

in view of the high expectations of the people.

”We cannot afford to disappoint our people. We must ride on the wave

of their enthusiasm and determination to deliver to them the dividends

of democracy, for which they have been yearning. All our leaders, both

elected and otherwise, must come together to channel the

energy and vibrancy of our people to positive goals,” Alhaji Mohammed said.

He called on APC members and supporters in the state to be magnanimous

in victory, saying there is no room for vindictiveness or hatred in

the new Kwara.

”The massive victory in Kwara State came on a peaceful note. We must

maintain that and banish all the vestiges of violence from our

state,” the Minister said.
