Labour Party’s The governorship candidate of Labour Party in Kwara State, Comrade Issa Aremu has said that the 2019 general elections are aimed at liberating people of the State from what he called ‘dictatorship’ of one person.
Aremu, who announced withdrawal from the race in favour of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Saturday governorship election in the State, AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq, said that the development marked the beginning of liberation from one party which had ruled the state for 16 years.
“What we are saying is whether you believe in Otoge slogan of APC or Odopin (the end has come) of Labour Party, we must ensure that PDP did not win Saturday’s elections.
“This coming elections and last Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections, are not only about winning; it is about liberation of our state from dictatorship of one person, one party.
“Having campaigned vigorously to all the nooks and crannies of Kwara and nationally, since I made my declaration to run for governorship since July 2018, we lower our ambition for the greater interest of Kwara, and we will work our talk. As from now, I will go back to our people and explain this to them.
“Both Otoge and Odopin, are the same thing, we have decided that we are going to back the governorship of Alhaji AbdulRahman Abdulrazaq.”
Aremu advised Abdulrazaq to give priority to women during his administration.
At a brief ceremony held at the Africa’s People hall of Mustapha Akanbi Foundation, Ilorin, labour leaders and scores of members of both Labour Party and APC embraced the development.
