Kwara ex-Gov, Fatah Ahmed Quits Saraki’s Camp, Explains Why He Joins Another Party

By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahman

The immediate past governor of Kwara State and a loyalist to the former Nigeria’s Senate President, AbdulFatah Ahmed has explained why he joined some certain eminent Nigerians across political divides to float another political party in Nigeria.

Ahmed said the performance of the present administration in the last six years fell short of expectations of most Nigerians.

He added on Tuesday in Abuja during the inaugural meeting of the coalition, the Rescue Nigeria Project, RNP, that the mission is to build a new direction for the country.

“In 2015, Nigerians embraced change. Today, that change appears to be what we didn’t expect. There is insecurity. There is widespread poverty and incompetence in government. Today, we have a high level of nepotism and a lack of exclusiveness. These have given rise to agitations by different ethnic groups.

“It is based on this that we decided to set up this Rescue Nigeria Project. We want to salvage this country and see how we can fix the mess. We want to set a template and key criteria leaders must have before they can attain any political position.”

 

Present at the International Conference Centre, venue of the event, were former national secretary of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, Ambassador Usman Bugaje; former Minister of Education, Professor Tunde Adeniran; former Kwara State governor, AbdulFatah Ahmed and Professor Pat Utomi.

Expected but absent at the event were former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Yomi Awoniyi and former Cross Rivers State governor, Donald Duke.
