By Hammed Shittu in Ilorin
Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, has called on the national  leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to strengthen the ties of  unity which ensured the party’s victories in the last general elections to enable it fulfil its campaign promises to Nigerians.

Ahmed made the call in Ilorin on Wednesday when he received the North-Central Zone executive members of the party led by its Vice Chairman, Alhaji Zakari Abdullah, at Government House, Ilorin.

According to him, “The APC members must put their differences aside, work for the success of party programmes, collective interest of Nigerians and inclusiveness in the overall interest of all party members.

“As a party, we enjoyed the grace of God and massive suport of Nigerians by being able to dislodge a ruling party, PDP  of over 16 years in less than one and a half years of our party’s formation.

“It was a big feat .The success was largely as a result of the determination of all the parties that came together to form the APC.

“Hence, we should not allow the steam to dry up. We should not allow distraction to change the focus for which we told Nigerian we will try to create a change for better life”.

Ahmed stressed the need to strengthen regional cooperation among governments and APC stakeholders in the North-Central Zone to further develop the region economically.

On the delay in the payment of salaries at local government level, he advocated the strengthening of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) to enable local governments in Nigeria drive their national interests collectively.
