Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed, has explained that his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress is a script hatched and perfected by fifth columnists within the party.
Ahmed revealed this while receiving the National Executive of Oro Descendents Union, led by its President, Alhaji Uthman Balogun, who paid him a courtesy call at the Government House.
He said he reluctantly dumped the APC when it became obvious that the people of the state who delivered a 100 per cent electoral victory to the APC were continuously being marginalised and persecuted.
He said all the entreaties to ensure that the people of Kwara State were treated with dignity, equity and justice fell on deaf ears as a result of those rooting for their personal relevance by marginalising other stakeholders.
He said, “If it were for personal gains, I would not have left the APC as a sitting governor. The Senate President would also have been contented with the coveted position of the Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
