A former Chairman of Ifelodun Local Government, Jide Usman, told reporters in Ilorin, the state capital, that the group's leaders had watched patiently and with grave concern about some happenings in the state’s political horizon.
He said the disgruntled leaders are respected opinion leaders and grassroot mobilizers across the 16 local government areas, as such any serious political group in the state cannot afford to ignore them.
“We had sought an audience with the governor to enable us to present our feelings, observations and opinions for discussion with him one-on-one. But, the overtures were ignored. This was in spite of the fact we are not taking all these steps for pecuniary benefits but for the benefit of his administration and the good people of Kwara in general.
“We must express our feelings and state emphatically that we feel neglected and marginalized by the government and that our massive sacrifices and contributions led to its emergence.”
