Gov Ahmed Urges Politicians To Avoid Unguarded Comments
Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed has urged politicians to restrain from unguarded comments capable of creating discord and heating up the polity.
Governor Ahmed was responding to social media posts following a message by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) elders in Ifelodun Local Government Area inviting members to a political meeting.
He described the issue as a party affair which should not be given any negative connotation. According to him, such unguarded utterances are misleading and can cause divisions that will be difficult to heal if allowed to fester.
A statement by his media aide, Muyideen Akorede, said the party as presently constituted in Ifelodun is known for its inclusiveness and consensus building.
“The meeting is an internal party affair and should not be given any negative undertone that can undermine the harmony, peace and cohesion of Kwara South and indeed the state,” he said.
He urged PDP aspirants to abide by the party’s tradition of unity, peaceful conduct, inclusiveness and respect for the leadership in exercising their right to aspire to elective posts.
The PDP will screen its Senatorial and House of Representatives aspirants today.
A statement by its spokesperson, Tunde Ashaolu, said the screening will hold at the party’s secretariat at Flower Garden, Ilorin, at 10 am.
He added that screening for governorship aspirants will hold on Saturday at the PDP North Central Zonal Secretariat in Lafia, Nasarawa State.
