A youth forum with the name Ajikobi Youths Forum has called on the Executive Governor of Kwara State, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to come to their aid and rescue the constituency from the bad representation of the incumbent House of Assembly Representative, Honourable AbdulGafar Ayinla Ayilara.
In a statement signed by the Chairman, MUHAMMAD, Habeebulah, (Al-Manjiri), He made it known that AbdulGafar Ayilara has failed to be a committed and responsive leader since he emerged as a member representing the good people of Ajikobi and Alanamu in the 9th Assembly.
“We, the youth of Ajikobi, regret the emergence of Ayilara in the last general elections.
“We should remember that AbdulGafar Ayilara rode to power on the widespread acceptability of Governor AbdulRazaq, then-candidate by the good people of Kwara State. This made us believe in the candidacy of Ayilara without doing a needs assessment of any sort to know how dubious and deceitful he could be.
“We are now calling on the Executive Governor of Kwara State to salvage us from the prebendalism style of leadership that AbdulGafar Ayilara is exposing us to.
“It is clear to the deaf and can be heard by the blinds how much development you have brought up this state since the last two years in office.
“No doubt, you are writing your name in the sand of time as the foremost person to run a prudent government in Kwara State.
“Your achievements are visible; from Social Investment Program to Infrastructural development, to workers welfare and security of lives and properties of the teeming Kwarans cannot be overemphasised. We beg you not to rest on your oars until you achieve your aim of remodelling Kwara State as you promised during the election period.
We plead you rescue our jugular of the wicked claws of Ayilara by not supporting his candidacy in the 2023 election. This, we believe, will tarnish your hard-earned reputation and truncate what your government stands for if allowed to happen. By God’s grace, we are solidly behind you to rule us again and till 2027, God willing, but liberate us from Ayilara’s wickedness as a liberator that you are.”
