I can actually see the point of these youths rejecting Alhaji Lai Mohammed's nomination.Seems some arrangee arrangement has gone on to impose him on the state.I'm not saying he can't do tye job,but the process is questionable.
I am of cos talking about the APC Youths in Kwara state rejecting the ministerial nomination of Lai Mohammed as the minister representing Kwara state. The youths under the aegis Coalition Groups of All Progressives Congress, APC presented a petition letter to the state party chairman, Ishola Balogun Fulani at the party secretariat, accusing Lai Mohammed of not working towards the success of the party in the state during the last
election but concentrated his energy in Lagos state.
They say it will be unfair to other party members in the state who are well deserving and worked for the success of the party in the state.
Spokesperson of the group, Prince Adetoyese Omokanye said
"His permanent voter’s card(PVC) was registered and collected in Lagos and all his contributions for the emergence of APC at the federal level are through lagos. He was not in Kwara all through the electioneering exercise and couldn’t influence our electoral successes at the poll.His son is presently a member of Lagos state house of assembly. Therefore,he stressed,”we are baffled when newspapers claims indicated that he represents Kwara state in the ministerial list submitted by the president to the national assembly for screening. Our assumption was that two nominees have been taken from Lagos,Alhaji Lai Mohammed and Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola. Confirming Lai Mohammed as representing Kwara state in the ministerial position is denying Kwara state of being represented at that level. It will be justice denied,and a promotion of unfairness and political exclusion of Kwara state in the affairs of our country. To this end,we request that Mr President chose among qualified individuals with impeccable character from Kwara South senatorial district to represent the state at the federal council. Kwara south senatorial district is made up of seven local government out of the sixteen in the entire state. We have great minds,success stories that could bring more and positive impacts to the nation building,people with unbeatable track records and have impacted positively to the social,political and economic integration of Kwara state. These group contributed greatly to the success of APC at all levels in Kwara state”he said
