The Threat From Kwara State Govt Against Me -Abdulrazaq O Hamzat

March 9, 2018

It is has been brought to my attention that the Kwara State government said it is looking for me over some issues pertaining to the activities of Kwara Must Change. Mr Tunji Buhari, All Progressive Congress (APC) State PRO made it known today on Royal FM radio station in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

The APC State PRO was responding to Kwara Must Change demand on the Kwara State government to prosecute Director of Harmony Holdings Limited Mr. Bayo Sanni, who has been indicted and found culpable in some criminal behaviors by a resolution of the Kwara State House of Assembly (KWHA).

The KWHA had found that Mr Sanni had abused his office and allocated to himself, properties belong to Kwara State government without any due process. The house of assembly also established that Mr. Sanni had been receiving government money, such as rents, dues, charges and others in his personal account, which is in gross violation of lay down rules and regulation.


However, rather than recommend among others, the prosecution of Mr Sanni for his alleged acts of criminality, the KWHA simply ordered the culprit to pay back N20million for a land he unlawfully acquired, a development strongly condemned by Kwara Must Change.

In the process of trying to defend Mr Sanni and exonerating him of any wrong doing against the KWHA resolution, the APC state PRO revealed that the state government is looking for Abdulrazaq O Hamzat for misleading the public in connivance with SaharaReporters.

It is on this basis that i am asking, why is the Kwara State government looking for me, if indeed they are looking for me? For what purpose and to what end? Is the APC PRO saying we cannot make demands from government to prosecute an alleged criminal who stolen assets and resources belonging to the people of Kwara?

While i understand that people like Mr Buhari may have benefited from this racket, I do not expect him to come on air to brag about their acts of criminality, I expected him to be humble and cover his face in shame. While I would also have ignored the baseless threat against me coming from him, I am reminded that the same man was one of those accused of masterminding the kidnap and dehumanization of one of our comrade, who was kidnapped at the Kwara State High Court few months ago in a case involving the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Sahara
Reporters. I am therefore bringing this to public knowledge for the records, without fear whatsoever.

Let me make it pointedly clear, that I am not in anyway scared of the threat of arrest by Mr Buhari, who has now become the spokesman of the alleged criminal that stole Kwara State dry. As a matter of fact, this threat is the antidote needed to propel me and my comrades into more action, in ensuring social justice in Kwara State.

I reiterate, on behave of Kwara Must Change, that Mr Bayo Sanni must be prosecuted for his mindless abuse of office and should the government fail to act right, the people would take it upon themselves to force an action.

Kwara Must Change.
