Political fortune of Kwara changes for good - Mohammed Bio

Date: 2019-09-10

 

A member of the House of Representatives, Rep. Mohammed Bio (APC-Kwara) has said that the Otoge movement in Kwara has brought an all-inclusive and people-oriented government in the state.

Bio who made the assertion during his interaction with journalists in Abuja on Monday said that the voices of people were now heard in the running of the state affairs.

Otoge which means enough is enough is a slogan used by indigenes in a movement against the influence of some political godfathers in Kwara ahead of the 2019 general elections.

We have now done certain things differently since the last election; the governor will be celebrating his 100 days in office soon.

The lawmaker said that though the role of political godfathers cannot be completely ruled out, it should not be a platform to exploit the people and deny them true representation.

He said that in the past, an individual decided who should become a representative, senator, minister or governor but that had changed.

Bio who represented Baruten/Kaima Federal Constituency of Kwara said that he was determined to do what was right for his constituents.
