While urging them not to be discouraged by the outcome of the presidential and National assembly elections in the state, Saraki who was given a heroic reception on arrival at Ilorin International Airport by a mammoth crowd of supporters and well-wishers, expressed confidence that the PDP has the number to emerge victorious in the remaining elections.
In his address to the supporters at the Charity House at his Iloffa GRA residence in Ilorin, he urged them to close ranks and work in unison for the PDP in the governorship and house of assembly elections.
He also appealed to other aggrieved stakeholders to overlook wherever the system might have erred in the overall interest of Kwara state.
“Those you voted for in anger are not your people and cannot attend to your needs as we, who are your brothers will do,” Saraki reminded them.
While thanking the people of the state for their support, he assured them that he would always be around to cater for their needs.
“I can’t run away. My covenant with my people transcends politics. I will never abandon my people. We should not fight. I leave everything to God. I will not fight even with those they declared winnners of the last weekend’s elections. We must cooperate for the governorship election. Once we do this, we shall win the election,” he added.
The Senate President charged his followers to be more committed like the opposition’s supporters.
