Leading a mammoth crowd drawn from Labour Party and his Alapata/Babako ward in Ilorin, Aremu said more than other political parties, the manifesto of LP recognizes that traditional rulers are the real custodians of the traditional institutions and cultural values of the Nigerian people and that in this capacity they play a very important leadership role at the grassroots level.

The governorship aspirant who also congratulated the Emir on the success of Durbar during the last Eid-il-Kabir added that Labour Party identifies cultures as reflective of the history, traditions and values of people.

“The Labour Party recognises the cultural diversity of Nigeria’s society and the rich cultural heritage of the country’s various nationalities and ethnic groups” he observed.

He also promised that if elected, he would ensure regular excursions by students to traditional rulers and community leaders in order to make our children show appreciation to our cultural heritage.

He also said there should be regular capacity building training for traditional rulers and personnel of Local Government Councils on critical security success factors like documentation and record keeping, national security outfits, general and prevailing national security challenges; and intelligence gathering.”

Earlier, Aremu had said the state “suffers huge development deficits” adding that “2019 gubernatorial election offers a unique historic opportunity to rebuild Kwara state from what he called “Ghetto” of poverty into land of prosperity and commonwealth for all”.

He promised to lead the state “through selflessness, statesmanship, entrepreneurship, compassion, managing diversity, equality, inclusiveness, sense of justice and fairness.

He said his promised stewardship will be a continuation of his selfless and tested struggle within the national, African and global labour movement spanning four decades”.

In his response, the Emir of Ilorin said the town is so large now that anybody can aspire and become whatever they wish to become and give his royal blessing for Aremu’s aspiration.
