Kwara law­maker de­nies dump­ing APC

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

A mem­ber of the Kwara State House of As­sem­bly, Barr Kamaldeen Fagbemi yes­ter­day de­scribed as un­founded the re­port that he was al­legedly plan­ning to dump the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) for the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP).

Fagbemi, who rep­re­sents Oke-Ogun con­stituency of Oyun Lo­cal Govern­ment, de­scribed the re­port pub­lished by a news web­site as “un­founded, ma­li­cious, un-be­com­ing and a de­lib­er­ate at­tempt to bring him to dis­re­pute among mem­bers of APC” in his con­stituency and the state at large.

Speak­ing in a chat with our cor­re­spon­dent, the le­gal prac­ti­tioner fur­ther main­tained that the re­port was or­ches­trated to cause dis­af­fec­tion be­tween him and for­mer Gover­nor Bukola Saraki.

It would be re­called that out of the 22 law­mak­ers elected un­der PDP, 20 of them de­fected to APC in def­er­ence to Saraki and Gover­nor Ab­dul­fa­tah Ahmed who had ear­lier dumped the PDP.
