Former senator, Suleiman Ajadi, on Saturday, has blamed the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, for the crisis in the All Progressives Congress in Kwara State.
While addressing journalists in Ilorin on Friday, the ex-senator warned the minister against using former APC chairman Bashir Bolarinwa to destabilise the state.
He urged President Muhammadu Buhari, and other APC leaders to call the minister to order.
Earlier in the week, members of the APC in Kwara State exchanged blows at one of the venues of the ongoing membership registration.
He said, “The person to be blamed is the Honorable Minister for Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Muhammed. He brought BoB to Kwara State to come and be the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee.
“And it was because Alhaji Lai Muhammed is claiming to be the leader of the party in Kwara state. Take it that when we had no governor, honorable minister could be the party leader for that state. But when we now have a substantive governor, how can you be claiming to be the party leader and trying to give orders, telling the governor where he should go and where he should not go?
“Now, when they wanted to re-appoint this BOB, many of us raised this issue that he was a caretaker chairman. How do you say you want the caretaker chairman to succeed himself as caretetaker chairman again? The current caretaker chairmen in other states were substantive chairmen of the party in their states.
“How can you say that a registration exercise that is going on in all the 36 states of the federation including the FCT be stopped in your own state? If people can call Alhaji Lai Muhammed to order, there will be peace, and if he wants to continue that way we are ready for him.
There is nobody that will be allowed to spoil this party for us in Kwara State because if they destroy it there is nowhere else we can go. He can go back to Lagos.”
