2027 Kwara guber race open to all – Afonja descendants

The President of Afonja Descendants Union (ADU) in Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulkarim Olola-Kazum, has declared that the 2027 governorship election in the state is open to all aspirants irrespective of their geopolitical origins.

Olola-Kazum made this declaration via a statement made available to journalists on Sunday.

Olola-Kazum, in the statement, asserted that the state has never reserved the governorship for any particular district through official mandates or collective bargaining.

He said that the forthcoming governorship contest is open and all interested aspirants are eligible to contest on any platform they choose.

He added that rotational governorship or making space for certain groups undermines the democratic values the state stands for.

“The governorship contest has historically been an open field where all interested aspirants can present their platforms.

“This approach embodies the true essence of democracy, which we strived to uphold even during the challenging times under military rule.

“Hearing talks of rotational governorship or making space for certain groups undermines the democratic values we stand for. Such practices will be unequivocally rejected.”
