Senator Suleiman Ajadi has vowed to deliver his Kwara South senatorial district to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
The senator who was in the red chamber from 1999 to 2003 on the platform of defunct ANPP, made this known while answering questions from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja.
The former lawmaker also stated that he is also aspiring to return to the Red Chamber of the National Assembly to serve his constituents. He pointed out that a huge deficit had been created due to poor long years of representation. He went further to promise to ensure that the quality representation, which was hitherto lacking in the constituency, is restored.
According to Ajadi, he is the most experienced and knowledgeable in legislative matters at the national level of all the aspirants who are vying for the seat in the state.
Ajadi saud that that the constituency had been poorly represented with virtually nothing to show for the huge constituency projects money that had been collected on behalf of the people so far. NAN reports that the number of aspirants vying for the position on the platform of APC in Kwara south is now five. Messrs Popoola Saheed representing Offa Constituency in the State House of Assembly; Lola Ashiru and Nurudeen Adeyemi have shown interest for the seat on the platform of APC.
Other aspirants seeking the same senatorial slot on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) include the incumbent Gov. Abdulfatah Ahmed and incumbent Sen. Rafiu Ibrahim. Gbenga Makanjuola, the chief of Staff to the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, is also among them.
However, Ajadi said the APC will defeat any candidate presented by the PDP, adding that the APC has started to mobilize the electorate. He said a lot of people in the state were interested in the APC due to the fact that they were tired of been held down by the manipulation of few individuals in the state.
