Kwara Third Force formally embraces YPP

By Steve Oni, Ilorin

At last, members of the much talked about ‘Kwara Third Force’ have formally embraced the Young Progressives Party (YPP).

This was announced on Wednesday by the Coordinator of Kwara Third Force, Abdulfatah Abdulrahman, in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, at a press briefing by the Coordinator of the Kwara Third Force.

Some of the reasons adduced for leaving the APC include “inability of the Kwara State APC to demonstrate fairness, equity and provision of a level playing field for every member of the party, and protracted intra-party crises that have shown no signs of abating.

“The aspirations of the people of the state for good governance and overall development of the state cannot be achieved under APC with the existing conditions.

“These developments have given cause for our collective decision to look for an alternative, viable political platform where every individual can participate fully in our state’s democracy.

“The political party we have chosen is a party that assures equal participation for all men and women, young and old, rich and poor. It is a party that ensures that the rule of law, equity, justice and fair play are its central ethos.

“On the strength of this, I am pleased to announce that it is the collective decision of all members of Kwara Third Force, to join the YOUNG PROGRESSIVES PARTY (Y.P.P).”

AbdulRahman appealed to “well meaning political stakeholders, and youths in the State to join us to build a formidable platform that will stand the test of time.”

Kwara State Chairman of YPP, Charles Olufemi Folayan, said: “We are delighted to receive these numbers of strong political players in Kwara State into our party. It is evident that they have seen the light ahead and have decided to join the true progressives party to fix Nigeria and Kwara State in particular.”
