Balarabe Musa endorses Issa Aremu for Kwara governorship

Date: 2018-08-16


Ahead of 2019 elections, first democratically-elected governor of Kaduna State in the Second Republic, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, has endorsed the aspiration of the General Secretary of National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria, NUTGTWN, Mr. Issa Aremu, for Kwara State governorship election, citing his commitment to the struggle for social justice and development in the country.

He spoke when Aremu, a governorship aspirant on the platform of Labour Party, LP, paid him a courtesy call at his residence in Kaduna.

In Alhaji Musa's words: "I support Aremu 99 percent. I would have supported him 100 percent if he runs on PRP. But the Labour Party he chooses is part of progressive families committed to socialist transformation of Nigeria."

Earlier, Aremu disclosed that he was inspired by the record of Alhaji Musa, adding that "I am an ideological and political son of Alhaji Musa right from my university days."

Decrying the socio-political situations in the country, Aremu noted that it was time Nigeria implemented the resolutions of 2014 conference with reference to code of conduct for political parties and political party office holders on carpet crossing, which says "any elected official, executive or legislative, who carpet-crosses, regardless of the reasons for such, shall automatically forfeit their seat.

"Such officials are, however, free to contest for the position or any other position on the basis of their new political party."
