The prospects for Mallam Muktar Tolani Shagaya, APC Candidate Federal House of Representatives (Asa/Ilorin West), paint a very bright picture ahead of the February 25th elections as his unmatched pace and tenacity through his campaign seems to have placed him far ahead of his competition.
The continuation of his voter-engagement campaign forged ahead today, February 14th, covering the Baboko, Alanamu, Adewole, and Ubandawaki wards of Ilorin West Local Government. As he engaged with his constituents of Ilorin West, the epicenter of politics and governance, the avid support for his candidacy was truly a remarkable sight to behold.
An endless stream of the most enthused supporters, particularly from Adewole ward, trooped out to show their adoption of the Shagaya-APC ticket. Not only did their numbers surpass all expectations and projections, but their solidarity also served as a testament to the abundance of support for the House of Representatives candidate and the entire All Progressives Congress.
The immense success of today’s rally solidifies the wide acceptance of the Shagaya-APC team while laying to rest the weak claims from the opposition that the people of Kwara state are rebelling against another APC regime. If the massive turnouts over the last couple of days are anything to go by, the opposition must be understandably shaken as the support for Shagaya and the APC candidates only continue to wax stronger.
The outstanding achievements of Governor Abdulrazaq’s administration and the positive impacts of Mallam Saliu Mustapha coupled with the promise of Shagaya’s candidacy have done well to revive robust hope in the hearts of the people of Kwara and give them many reasons to come out in droves on election day to cast their votes and place their faith in the All Progressive Congress.
Indeed, Shagaya’s campaign continues to be an unequivocal affirmation from the great people of Asa/Ilorin West in support of a brighter future for Kwara state built on a vision of heritage, development, and progress.
