Mashood Bakare has resigned from his position as the coordinator of the Buhari Support Group in Kwara State as rumours of an imminent defection to the Peoples Democratic Party swells.
Coordinator of the Kwara State Chapter of Buhari Support Group, Mashood Bakare, has formally resigned his appointment, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Bakare, who represents Omupo Constituency in the state assembly, announced his resignation on Thursday, at the floor of the House.
According to Daily Nigerian, Bakare, while explaining the decision, said his resignation was based on personal reasons.
He said he was no longer willing to be part of the organisation which he had been with since 2014. The lawmaker, however, assured that he would continue to be sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of his people.
Reacting, the Speaker, Ali Ahmad, inquired if the decision to relinquish his post was willingly taken, and he answered in the affirmative.
The Kwara governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed had hinted that he and other top members of the state chapter, including the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, will soon dump the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He spoke in Ilorin, the state capital, during a meeting with youths, traders, local government chairmen among others.
Ahmed lamented that the APC formed in 2014 with the hope of meeting the needs and aspirations of the people in critical areas of national life has not delivered.
“We are gathered here to consult with our supporters, market women, artisans, youths and women on how to guarantee our people’s interest and our state’s progress,” he was quoted as saying.
“Our leader Senate President Bukola Saraki will soon come home to announce where we will go. APC has not met our expectations. You have told us that they have not met your aspirations as a people in APC.
“You have come to tell us that you want us to move on to a new platform that will give us room to meet our aspirations for the good of Kwarans. By the grace of God almighty, you will have a response very soon and very clear.
“But one is as clear as crystal you the stakeholders have told us to move out of the APC and because we run an inclusive process, that is why we have come to sit here and seek your opinion which you have expressed.
“And certainly your decision is our decision. So whatever you want is what we will do. God will guide us aright.”
