Bolaji Abdullahi Joins 2019 Governorship Race In Kwara
Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the immediate past National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, has joined the 2019 governorship race in Kwara State.
Information gathered by Naija News reveals that he would contest under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).
The information was disclosed by Dr. Muyideen Akorede, Senior Special Assistant on Media to Governor Abdullahi of Kwara sate.
A post on his Facebook page Thursday night read: “Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi throws his hat in ring, declares for Kwara governorship, surrounded by friends and family”.
Naija News recalls that Abdullahi dumped the APC on Wednesday August 1, 2018, and thereafter announced his resignation as chairman of the Nigerian Sugar Development Company.
Currently, Abdullahi is the head of Media and Publicity committee of the newly formed Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) inaugurated on August 6 in Abuja by the steering committee of CUPP.
Abdullahi is a close and very loyal ally of Senate President Bukola Saraki, who recently defected to the PDP as well and this is expected to make it easier for him to clinch the governorship ticket.
