Ahmed Abdulfatah, Governor of Kwara State, has picked up the nomination form for the Kwara South Senatorial District.
He is seeking to contest on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a tweet via his handle on Saturday, the Governor stated that his action was in response to calls by his people to ensure “effective, purposeful representation”.
The post read: “In response to calls by my people and in keeping with my strong desire to upscale the excellent work we have done in all three zones of the state, through effective, purposeful representation, I have picked up the PDP nomination form for Kwara South Senatorial District.”
Abdulfatah defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP on July 31, minutes after Senate President Bukola Saraki announced his resignation from the same party.
“Following due consultations and in response to calls by major stakeholders in the state, I have moved to the PDP because the APC can longer serve as a platform for achieving the aspirations and expectations of my people,” he had said.
