Lai Mohammed Promises To Make Feb 23rd Liberation Day In Kwara

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Monday said that February 23 will be declared as Kwara Liberation Day immediately the new government comes to power in the state.

Mohammed disclosed this in Ilorin on Monday while addressing a Press Conference with stakeholders of the party in the state.

The minister who said that the presidential and National Assembly elections was a clean sweep for APC in the state said, “As you must be aware by now, the official results of last Saturday’s National Assembly elections in Kwara have been announced.


It is a clean sweep for our party, the All Progressives Congress. All three seats in the Senate and all six in the House of Representatives were won by our party.

“The match between our party and the PDP ended 10-0 (1 President, 3-0 Senatorial, 6-0 House of Reps).

“With the outcome of last Saturday’s elections, I can now conveniently say that Kwara is Free! Free from a choking and pauperising political hegemony of a self-imposed dynasty!

“Never again will Kwarans be treated like slaves in their own land. Enough is Enough. O To Ge!” he emphasised.

The minister continued, “I want to ask the incoming governor of our state to, immediately he is sworn in on 29 May, 2019, declare February 23rd of every year as the Day of Liberation for Kwara State.”

Alhaji Mohammed noted that the victory of APC in the election should go to the people of the state who resoundly said no to the PDP last Saturday .

He recalled that the freedom of the state started on November 17,2018 When APC won the by-election for the Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero federal constituency adding, “it was the beginning of the crumbling of the Berlin Wall of Kwara Politics.

“Today, the Berlin Wall of Kwara Politics has fallen. The chain has been broken. The good
people of Kwara have ensured that,” he said.

The minister noted, “The victory in Kwara was achieved in the sweetest way. The election was conducted in an atmosphere of peace and security.

“Not a single shot was fired throughout Kwara. No one snatched ballot box. It was an atmosphere of conviviality. It was a sharp departure from what used to be in the state.

“It confirms what we have been saying, that when there is adequate security, there will be a level playing ground for all the parties, and for all Kwarans.”

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
