    2023: YPP guber candidate decries infrastructural gaps in Kwara

    *Urges electorate to vote credible personalities

    By Olufemi Oni, Ilorin

    The governorship candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Kwara State, Alhaji Yakubu Gobir, has decried the utter neglect of rural communities in the state by successive administrations, vowing to prioritise and fast track grassroots development by tackling headlong the infrastructural gaps, if he is given the mandate in 2023.

    Gobir, who disclosed this while addressing Party supporters and people of Alapa community in Asa local government area of the state in continuation of his statewide campaign ahead of the 2023 general elections, lamented that: “Previous administrations in the state have neglected rural communities and denied them needed basic amenities such as good road networks, electricity, healthcare and schools with conducive environment.”

    Highlight of the event was the reported defection of 250 members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Alapa Community to the YPP as Gobir donated the sum of N2m towards the construction of Alapa Community Central Mosque.

    The YPP governorship candidate, who was reportedly received by excited party members and supporters in Afon, interacted with stakeholders from Ogbondoroko, Laduba, Ogele and Budo Egba Wards, urged the electorate to correct the mistakes of the past by voting for credible personalities in 2023 in order to move the state and Nigeria at large forward.

    Gobir, who is the Madawaki of Ilorin Emirate and a philanthropist of note, implored the electorate not to trade their votes ahead of the 2023 general elections, added that: “Selling and buying of votes would deter our development as a nation and state. We need to resist the temptation of vote buying during elections in order to secure the future of our children. We need to vote in credible personality with clear vision to lead Kwara State and I believe I’m the right man for the job.”

    The YPP Governorship candidate, who lauded the womenfolk for their unwavering support since the commencement of the campaign, said Kwarans would enjoy more dividends of democracy and witness proceeds of good governance when YPP comes into power in 2023.

    At Aboto Oja, Gobir shared his plans for “unmatched development of Kwara State” with the people from Abbott, Onila Oja and Okesho wards.

    Earlier, the Daudu of Afon, Mallam Hanafi Olayinka, had prayed for the success of Gobir in 2023, while the Magaji of Aboto commended the governorship candidate for uplifting the lives of Kwarans, urging him to help their children through empowerment programmes towards reducing unemployment and poverty among the youth in Asa local government area. Also, community leaders, while expressing gratitude for his philanthropic gestures, implored him to look into the bad road networks and other poor social amenities in their area and across the state when he becomes governor in 2023.
