Governor Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State has stated that most governors elected on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) rode of the back of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Consequently, he noted that they would not allow the opposition to disparage the president.
AbdulRazaq spoke in Ilorin, the capital of Kwara State, during the distribution of Ramadan items tagged “Baba for all” to the vulnerable, physically challenged, widows and less privileged across the 16 LGA of the state.
He noted that President Buhari is a leader who is “committed to the welfare of the poor and prudent management of resources,” and therefore deserves some respect.
“Most of the APC governors rode on Buhari’s back to power. Even though we had our own ‘otoge’ in Kwara, he led the party amiably. So we are not going to sit and have people needlessly denigrate the leader of the country. The man has been working.
“He has done exceedingly well and because he would not talk, the opposition is taking advantage of that to pull him and the country down. No, no patriot should allow that.”
