Nigeria: Kwara PDP supports Gov. Ahmed on purchase of aircraft
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara is in support of the plan by Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed to purchase 15 additional aircrafts for the state owned International Aviation College.
The Party’s state Publicity Secretary, Mas’ud Adebimpe, said this in reaction to condemnation from some political parties. In a statement issued on Wednesday in Ilorin, Adebimbe described Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) condemnation of the plan as mischief.
He said that the plan by the governor to buy the aircraft was in line with the policy of the PDP-led government to diversify the economy of the state.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the kernel of the Shared Prosperity Programme of the PDP administration in Kwara State is to create a credible platform for the emergence of highly trained manpower,” he said.
Adebimpe explained that the International Aviation College is the only non Federal Government driven Aviation College in Nigeria and one of the best in Africa. He advised opposition parties to appreciate the fact that the PDP-led government in Kwara was forward looking and remained committed to the transformation of the state.DAily Times
