The Party, in a statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Olusegun Olusola Adewara, said it regretted to inform the general public that except in matters of exigency and/or overriding public interest, it has suspended all party meetings, rallies, and other political gatherings until after 41 days, when all post-funeral rites and prayers are expected to have been completed.

The party mandated that all members, forums, caucuses, youth associations, elders, and affiliated stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State to understand and strictly comply with this directive.

“This decision was made to provide the Party and its leadership with ample time to mourn the passing of the distinguished Senator, Rafiu Ibrahim, and to reflect deeply on his significant contributions to the Party and democracy in Kwara State and the nation at large,” the spokesman added.

Consequently, the party, under the chairmanship of Rt. Hon. Babatunde Mohammed, has directed all its flags hoisted in secretariats across the 16 local government areas of the state, including wards and other party levels, to be lowered in reflection of the sober state of the party due to this sad incident.

“Our party expressed gratitude to the people of Kwara and sympathizers of the late Senator across Nigeria for their solidarity with the party during this difficult time.

“We urge them to bear with us as we navigate this period of mourning and sober reflection,” the party submitted.
