A governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Kwara, Barrister Ahmed Akanbi has described the defections of people from the party to the PDP as a blessing as APC was initially made up of strange bed fellows.

Mustapha-Akanbi, who said this on Friday in Ilorin while speaking with journalists said APC in Kwara now has people who have the mind to salvage the state from 16 years of bad governance.

The aspirant is the son of former Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Related Offences Commission (ICPC), late Justice Mustapha Akanbi.

Akanbi said those who left the party wee those who were only interested in the pursuit of their personal interests, adding that Nigerians can now expect the best of governance that President Muhammadu Buhari meant for the country.

According to him, he was moved to contest the governorship seat of APC in order to ameliorate the poor conditions of the people.

Akanbi lamented nothing worked in the state as virtually all infrastructures have collapsed or dilapidated.

“Each sector in Kwara State is in shambles. No school in the state is qualified for proper education.

“Some schools have closed down for lack of teachers. No more scholarship nor bursary for students while people are being impoverished to make them succumb to an individual domination.

“Teachers are not paid; pensioners are not paid. Empowerment are not done to the advantage of the people rather; it is done to further make the people poor. “The major problem in Kwara State is poverty and those who should make their life better are not bothered,” he added.
