Non indigenes residing in Kwara state, including Ndigbo, Hausa, Zuru,Yoruba and south- south communities have assured the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki of their support during the forthcoming general elections.

They assured Saraki of bloc votes for all the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 16 and March 2 elections.

The various non indigene groups gave the assurance during a meeting with the Senate President at his ABS Mandate Constituency Office in Ilorin, Kwara state capital.

Speaking at the meeting, the leader of the Ndigbo community in the state, Sir T.N Njoku said they were at the meeting with “a clear mandate”.

Njoku who congratulated Saraki for overcoming his travails in the hands of those he helped to power revealed that “we voted for the APC in 2015 because of Saraki. ”

He added: “We are happy when you joined PDP. When you were governor we really enjoyed a very cordial relationship with you. For you we will do everything to ensure your return to the Senate. When you were there, you instilled sanity. We want you to continue your good work at the Senate.

“For the president, we will vote Atiku. Atiku and Obi are entrepreneurs and will create job opportunities for our youths. We voted for Buhari in 2015 because of Saraki and this time around we shall vote for Atiku because of you.”
