A foremost businessman and politician, Hon Kamardeen Olayinka Kadiri from Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State has donated political souvenirs, funds and logistics to his immediate constituency, comprising of Oro Ward 1 and 2.
According to the Oro born Politician, the donation was to show love to members of his constituency, especially those from his home front.

Speaking further, Hon. Kamar enjoined members of PDP in both wards to remain united and steadfast as the 2023 election gathers momentum. He, however, promised to always contribute his quota towards having a smooth and enjoyable campaign ahead of the elections.
“Campaign period is always stressful. I want to appeal to us all to remain united. We are in the opposition, we may not be as rich as those in government but our unity and steadfastness will go a long way in giving us the desired victory. As part of the preparation for receiving our Presidential candidate for the North Central Campaign Flag-off, I will make available buses, feeding allowance and other logistics to ease our movement from Oro to Ilorin and back home. I am also providing branded caps and polos for us to have a unique and befitting outing,” he said.
The Vice Chairman, Oro ward 1, Mr Rafiu Omotayo, while speaking on behalf of his ward, extolled Honourable Kamar’s kind gestures and prayed that PDP will win in all categories of elections in 2023.

Also, his counterpart from Oro ward 2, Hon Adebayo Saraki Kolawole, who is the Chairman of the ward commended the efforts of Hon Kamar in an attempt to unite the two wards. “You are new in this party and it is almost looking like you have been with us for long. We appreciate you and love the way you are bringing us together. If we are united, we will achieve more and our lives will be better. Thank you, and we will ensure that all items donated are well managed and effectively distributed.”

While making the donations, he said the gesture was borne out of his genuine desire to see PDP win the forthcoming election at all levels.

Therefore, as an individual and a party man, I am making available 2 branded siena cars for campaigns. I am also donating branded caps and polos for rallies. I have done billboards and, here today, are flex banners to welcome our Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to the State of Harmony for the North Central Presidential Campaign flag off.”
While accepting the donations, the Director General of Yaman/Makanjuola Campaign Council, Prof Ali Ahmad thanked Hon Kamar for.his generosity and his continued determination to see PDP succeed in 2023.
