TUNDE OYEKOLA writes on the internal wrangling in the Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress
The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has been enmeshed in leadership crisis and internal wrangling since the conclusion of the 2019 general elections.
The problem is getting messier, instead of abating and findings from party insider indicate the crisis may not be over anytime soon.
In 2019, the party wrested power from the dynasty of a former political warlord, Dr Olusola Saraki, who had political grip on the state for close to five decades.
While in control, the former senate leader was able to install his son, Bukola, who ruled for eight years as the governor. Bukola later became the president of the senate in a very controversial manner.
However, despite the success of the APC, it has been unable to unite itself as party members who fought tooth and nail to gain control of power are no longer ready to work together. Already, some members of the APC in the state have defected to other political parties.
As things stand, the governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, seems not interested in working with two ministers who also hail from the state: the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; and the Minister of State for Transportation, Senator Gbemisola Saraki. Gbemisola, a former member of the senate, is a daughter of the late Saraki.
