Talking with correspondents in Ilorin not long after presenting his nomination form in Ilorin, Senator Ibrahim stated: “Representative Abdulfatah Ahmed is my pioneer in Kwara South. He has established ideal to challenge, just I likewise have. By chance, we have a place with the same political family.
“But you know our leader Bukola Saraki is one of the most acclaimed persons who knows how to build consensus.
“I believe the most acceptable candidate to the people will be chosen. I have no grudge against either the governor or Gbenga Makanjuola, who has submitted his form. Any of us can come out of the PDP so that we can defeat anyone from the other side.”
On why he is seeking reelection, Senator Ibrahim said “after due consultation with my family, stakeholders in our constituency and party members, coming from a genuine call to take another shot so that we can continue the good work we have done, I am seeking reelection.
“It is also based on the fact that, by the grace of almighty God, our leader, Senate President Bukola Saraki, will become the president of Nigeria come 2019. I have the desire to be there and continue to bring dividends of democracy to Kwara South in particular and Kwara State in general.
“I believe that I have enough legislative capability, experience and human relations capability among members of the party to be able to win elections for our party without too much stress.”
