Kwara Group Wants Senator Recalled For Kneeling Before Saraki
Members of the Kwara South Unity Forum in Kwara State are obviously not pleased with the man representing their interest at the Senate, Rafiu Ibrahim.
This has informed their decision to initiate a recall process against the senator representing the Kwara South Senatorial District.
According to a photocopy of the acknowledged copy of the petition, made available to journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Sunday, the petition had been sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission and the office of the President of the Senate.
The letter, dated November 13, was received and acknowledged at INEC on November 14 and the office of the President of the Senate on November 17.
The public notification of the recall process however did not come without drama.
While the group was about addressing journalists at Ofa on the recall process, hoodlums and thugs stormed the venue and disrupted the media briefing.
The General Secretary of the Kwara South Unity Forum, Ahmed Akorede, alleged that the invaders also made away with some valuables, adding that members of the group had been receiving threat messages, for discharging their “human right and constitutional” responsibility.
The President of the group, John Adegboye, while addressing journalists at Ijagbo in the Oyun Local Government Area, alleged poor representation by Ibrahim.
He stated, “A situation whereby, a man we voted for, now comes out openly and with audacity, to state that he needs to consult ‘his boss’, who isn’t even from Kwara South, is nothing but a violation of our human and democratic rights.”
Adegboye said it is wrong for Ibrahim to kneel before the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
According to him, the Senate is a gathering of equals while the President of the Senate is simply the first among equals.
