By Akogun Abdulrasheed

The factional Chairman of the All Progressive Congress Caretaker committee in Kwara state, Alh Abdullahi Samari has just been demoted to his former position as the Deputy Chairman of the APC faction loyal to Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

Mal. Abdullahi Sanmari who was until this evening the factional Chairman of the Kwara State All Progressives Congress (APC), loyal to the Kwara State Governor, has just been demoted, as he’s now the Deputy Chairman of the faction.

This much was observed at the faction’s ongoing State congress at its factional secretariat along Commissioner Lodge way, off Ahmadu Bello way Ilorin.

It would be recalled Hon. Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa had earlier been returned as the Chairman of his faction, at a rancour free State congress held at the Party’s State secretariat, along Reservation road, GRA Ilorin.

It would further be recalled, Abdullahi Sanmari was Bolarinwa’s Deputy Chairman, until he was handpicked by the Governor to lead the factional organ of the party loyal to him.

However, in a twist of fate, the Governor’s camp has dumped Sanmari, replacing him with Prince Sunday Fagbemi as Chairman, while Sanmari was selected as his Deputy.
