Senate President Ahmad Lawan has pleaded with Nigerians to give the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) another opportunity.
He said this at a town hall meeting organised by the Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, Dr. Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe, on Saturday.
At the meeting, which held in Ilorin, the state capital, Oloriegbe declared his intention to run for another term.
The senate president had earlier performed the groundbreaking of a rehabilitation centre at the Federal Neuropsychiatric Hospital, Budo-Egba, Asa Local Government Area, and commissioned Idi-Isin Community Health Centre, Okolowo Area of Ilorin, both of which Oloriegbe facilitated.
Lawan, however, cautioned Kwarans against returning to past leadership in the state.
He told those at the town hall meeting that the performance of Oloriegbe in the National Assembly has dwarfed all those who occupied the senatorial seat before him.
Former Senate President Bukola Saraki, Lawan’s predecessor, is among those who occupied the senatorial seat before Oloriegbe.
“I also want to call on all Nigerians to give APC another chance at all levels beyond 2023. We have promised Nigerians to continue to do our best and we would not renege on our promises”, Lawan said.
“I will like to remind you here, those people that you chased out will never get tired of trying to come back. You have only one more of “Otoge” and they will never come back.
“In 2023, just chase them far away from Kwara, and they will never find their way to Kwara. Don’t take it for.i
