Former APC Spokesman Bolaji Abdullahi to Run for Kwara State Governorship Election
Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the immediate past National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has joined the governorship race in Kwara State. He will run under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Political pundits say he may likely get the ticket considering his closeness to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the leader of the party in the state. Abdullahi will seek to succeed incumbent two-term Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed. Dr. Muyideen Akorede, his Senior Special Assistant on Media announced Abdullahi’s declaration of intent to contest next year.
A post on his Facebook page Thursday night read: “Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi throws his hat in ring, declares for Kwara governorship, surrounded by friends and family”.
Abdullahi left the APC on Wednesday August 1, 2018. Two days later, he announced that he had dropped President Muhammadu Buhari’s board appointment.
