By Demola Akinyemi
ILORIN— NATIONAL Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, weekend, in Ilorin Kwara State, insisted that APC remained the only party that could return the country to the path of greatness.
This came as wife of the immediate past governor of Kwara State, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, said she supported her husband’s defection to APC because it was inspired by God.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun led several APC chieftains including Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun to honour Mrs. Toyin Saraki as she celebrated her 50th birthday.
While Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal led scores of members of the House of Representatives to the event, Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed was the chief host.
The APC National Chairman commended Mrs. Saraki for supporting what he called the courageous step by Saraki in joining APC, saying APC remained the only party that could return Nigeria to the path of greatness and solicited Nigerians’ support in next year’s general election.
He said the “party is determined to salvage the current situation in the country and give Nigerians a truly visionary and progressive leadership.”
Why I supported my husband —Bukola Saraki’s wife
Speaking, the celebrant and founder of the Wellbeing Foundation, noted that her husband’s decision to join the APC was in the best interest of the suffering Nigerian masses.
According to her, “I trust my husband. I believe that my husband is inspired by God and listen to the wishes of the people and so I will always support him as long as he is with the people.”
She was, however, full of praises for the people of Kwara State and other Nigerians who turned out en masse to celebrate the golden jubilee with her.
“I thank Almighty God and I thank the wonderful and good people of Kwara State who allowed me into their heart, their home, the community and I thank God that we are all united for the development of Kwara State and the country at large,” she added.
Also speaking, Senator Bukola Saraki said he was humbled by the large presence of the crème-de-la-crème especially in the APC and captains of industry such as Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola who trooped to the state for the sake of his wife.
