The final nail was hammered in with ferocity, in Kwara State on the political career of the Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki as the last vestige of his influence was extinguished & expunged as the results of the Gubernatorial election and state House of assembly elections have finally come but still awaiting final ratification and declaration by the official umpire, the INEC.
From the results from all of the 16 local government areas of the state declared, the ruling party, that’s the PDP were summarily pulverized, nearly annihilated and unimaginably pummelled to submission with no answers whatsoever. Though there was unexpected voter apathy, those who still came out, voted massively for the APC giving the new bride of the people, Abdulrahaman AbdulRazaq as much as 331,546 votes in all against the paltry 114,754 for Hon. Razak Atunwa of the PDP, with the APC winning with as much a margin as 216,792 votes. The total vote of the APC nearly tripling that of the PDP, it was a humbling of the meanest order.
With the outstanding win, which some would tag a landslide by Alhaji Abdulrahaman AbdulRazaq of the APC, a new dawn has been ushered in, in Kwara State and every hold of Saraki on power in the state has now been wiped out. It’s like it’s a totally new beginning, a new dawn. What that actually says then, should be a lesson for everyone, to never ever forget that in politics, especially in a democracy your power lies in the people and their support, once you have lost them and they find an alternative to you, then you are a goner.
And that’s a lesson also for the Governor designate too, Alhaji Abdulrahaman AbdulRazaq that he had better be with the people and have them as his top priority or else in 4 years to come too, he himself could become another has been. This is so because the people have now come to understand that the power lies with them.
Congratulations to the winner and to the entire Kwara people. May all your wishes and desires come true.
