Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Kwara state has said that it has no plan to merge with any leading political party in the state ahead of the 2023 general election as against insinuation of such in the state.
Speaking with party members at Balogun Fulani Ward II in the Ilorin South local government area as part of thank you visit to local government areas in the state, the YPP governorship candidate, Alhaji Yakubu Gobir, said that the party welcomes other parties in the state which may want to join YPP.
Alhaji Gobir, who said that the YPP was formed, specifically, to cater for youth and women, considering their present challenges in the country, enjoined them to be steadfast towards making the party victorious in the general elections.
Royal times reports that Alhaji Gobir, who holds traditional title of Madawaki of Ilorin emirate, said that the party would win the next general elections in the state despite sentimental attacks from political opponents, adding that he would not join his opponents in dirty politicking.
Earlier during courtesy call on the Balogun Fulani of Ilorin, Alhaji Abubakar Sidiq Atiku Fulani, the Balogun Fulani extolled virtues of the YPP governorship candidate, saying that his philanthropic activities would come to play and be remembered by beneficiaries during the electioneering process.
Also, the state party chairman, Chief Dele Ogunbayo, commended members of the party for a large turnout and charged them to be steadfast.
