The Coordinator of the Kwara State Chapter of Buhari Support Group (BSG), Alhaji Mashood Bakare has formally resigned his appointment.
Bakare, a member of the State House of Assembly, announced his resignation on Thursday, at the floor of the House. Although he did not say it, the development might not be unconnected with the defection of several legislators, including two senators and six House of Representatives members from the state, from the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The former State Coordinator of BSG, representing Omupo Constituency, said his decision was based on personal reason, pointing out that, he had already tendered his resignation letter, to the group, informing it of his decision to relinquish his position.
He disclosed that he assumed the position in 2014, stressing that he was no longer, willing to be part of the organisation. The Legislator explained that communal interest supersedes any parochial consideration, assuring that he would continue to be sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of his people.
Reacting, the Speaker, Dr. Ali Ahmad, enquired, if the decision to relinquish his post was willingly taken, and answered in affirmation. Ahmad then enjoined politicians to always be sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of their people, to further make democracy more meaningful to average Nigerians.
