During an emergency press conference at the party’s zonal secretariat in Ajase-Ipo, Irepodun Local Government of Kwara State weekend, the Senatorial Chairman of the party, Alhaji Jimoh Balogun, maintained that those seeking recall of the legislator were being sponsored by “some forces”, he did not name.

Balogun who maintained that the Kwara South APC was neither enmeshed in internal wrangling nor divided, said the party was in full support of the legislator.

He said the proponents of the recall were only acting the script of their paymasters and dancing to the gallery, adding that the senator had endeared himself to the heart of the people he represents through developmental projects.

Senator Ibrahim, who chairs the Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions, is representing Kwara South Senatorial District in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
