The Social Democratic Party (SDP) on Monday flagged off its campaign for the forthcoming election in Kwara South with the submission that the people are poised to kick out politicians with failed promises.
The programme held at Ajase-Ipo in Irepodun Local Government Area, was attended by a large turnout of party faithful and candidates contesting for various positions in the 2023 polls.
Speaking with newsmen at the venue of the programme, the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Akeem Lawal, said his focus was to take young men away from the street who are now majorly motorcycle riders.
“We are people from a professional background. I am a chartered accountant; our senatorial candidate is a US-trained medical doctor, among others. We have a lot to lose and our name and reputation is at stake if we disappoint the people. Kwara has woken up to this fact and anybody who does not live up to his words will be kicked out,” he added.
The party’s senatorial candidate for Kwara South, Prof. Wale Suleiman, said SDP will move the state to the next level of progress.
