Issa Aremu: Kwara suffers from development deficits

Ahead of today’s governorship primaries of the Labour Party (LP) in Kwara state, governorship aspirant of the party, Comrade Issa Aremu has said that the state suffers from huge development deficits.

The frontline labour leader said if elected the governor of the state, he would rebuild Kwara state from what he called “Ghetto” of poverty into land of prosperity and common wealth for all.”

He promised to do that “Through selflessness, statesmanship, entrepreneurship, compassion, managing diversity, equality, inclusiveness, sense of justice and fairness.

He said his promised stewardship will be a continuation of his selfless and tested struggle within the national, African and global labour movement spanning four decades.”

Comrade Aremu said this in Ilorin, the state capital when he visited the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, for royal blessing on his ambition

He promised to draw on the experience of traditional authorities with respect to governance and leadership if elected to office in all the communities that make up Kwara state.

He vowed to revive old industries in the state, adding that new ones will be created for the benefit of the teeming unemployed youth in the state.

He said that the manifesto of LP recognizes that traditional rulers are the real custodians of the traditional institutions and cultural values of the Nigerian people and that in this capacity they play a very important leadership role at the grassroots level.

In a remark, Alhaji Sulu-Gambari described the aspirant as a competent candidate who is fit, by all standards, to be the state governor and even the president of this country.

The Emir said the LP governorship candidate is a man with a versed knowledge and wealth of experience who according to him has been a mover and shaker of this country and beyond.

He said that his leadership quality has given him the ample opportunity and recognition to have been nominated at different times to represent Kwara, Nigeria and even Africa in general at different fora.

Alhaji Sulu Gambari said Comrade Aremu was one of the leading figures at the former National Confab that was set up by the former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

The Emir said Comrade Aremu has every right to contest for any political office of his choice in view of his track record of achievements and prayed God to be with him and guide him in the task
