He was received at the Government House, Ilorin, yesterday by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq
Gobir, said his decision to step down followed the move by Governor AbdulRazaq to consider some of the policies outlined in his (Gobir) manifesto alongside his (AbdulRazaq’s) 10-year Sustainable Development Plan (2021-2030).
He said, “Although I will be conceding my place in the gubernatorial race, the action plan I feel addressed the peculiar needs of some 2,764 communities, 193 wards and 16 local government areas in Kwara.”

Gobir said, “It is understood that upon winning, he (AbdulRazaq) will form a government that accommodates allies, including members of our own party.
“With our support for the governor and the President-Elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, we are convinced that Nigeria is undoubtedly about to commence a journey of renewed hope.”
