2019: Gov Ahmed warns against divisive utterances
Written by Uthy on September 21, 2018
The Kwara State Governor, Dr. Abdulfatah Ahmed has cautioned politicians against unguarded and misleading comments that are capable of creating discord and heating up the polity.
The Governor made the comment in response to recent social media posts about a message by People’s Democratic Party(PDP) elders in Ifelodun Local Government area.
Dr. Ahmed described the message, which invited members to a political meeting, as a party affair which should not be given any negative connotation.
He condemned the posts and commentaries that trailed the message as unguarded utterances that are not only misleading but also have the capacity to cause divisions that will be difficult to heal in the Kwara South Senatorial district if allowed to fester.
According to him, the party as presently constituted in Ifelodun Local Government and indeed Kwara South is known for its inclusiveness and consensus building, therefore, the meeting is an internal party affair and should not be given any negative interpretation.
Such negatives, he noted, can undermine the harmony, peace and cohesion of Kwara South Senatorial District and indeed the state at large.
Consequently, Dr. Ahmed urged all PDP aspirants in the state to abide by the party structure’s tradition of unity, peaceful conduct, inclusiveness and respect for the leadership in exercising their right to aspire to elective posts.
