The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Monday said that February 23 will be declared as Kwara Liberation Day immediately the new government comes to power in the state.
Mohammed disclosed this in Ilorin on Monday while addressing a Press Conference with stakeholders of the party in the state.
The minister who said that the presidential and National Assembly elections was a clean sweep for APC in the state said, “As you must be aware by now, the official results of last Saturday’s National Assembly elections in Kwara have been announced.
It is a clean sweep for our party, the All Progressives Congress. All three seats in the Senate and all six in the House of Representatives were won by our party.
“The match between our party and the PDP ended 10-0 (1 President, 3-0 Senatorial, 6-0 House of Reps).
“With the outcome of last Saturday’s elections, I can now conveniently say that Kwara is Free! Free from a choking and pauperising political hegemony of a self-imposed dynasty!
“Never again will Kwarans be treated like slaves in their own land. Enough is Enough. O To Ge!” he emphasised.
The minister continued, “I want to ask the incoming governor of our state to, immediately he is sworn in on 29 May, 2019, declare February 23rd of every year as the Day of Liberation for Kwara State.”
