We’ve positively impacted every part of Kwara, says AbdulRazaq
Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has said that no part of the state is without projects or has not benefitted from various programmes of his administration.
Speaking in Ilorin, yesterday, while handing over the keys of seven campaign vehicles that Sen. Oyelola Ashiru (Kwara South) purchased for the seven local councils of the senatorial district, the governor commended lawmakers who complement his efforts to transform Kwara and serve the citizens better.
He said his government provided some dignified levels of dividends of democracy for the residents, including road projects, provision of potable water, healthcare and social safety nets for the vulnerable.
AbdulRazaq said residents of every part of the state could attest to the projects and programmes, without any propaganda.
His words: “Let me congratulate Sen. Ashiru for adding to what we are doing in the state. The vehicles he donated will go a long way in our mobilisation process.
“Campaigns have not started, but we need to start planning. This is the planning period. We have done well. People in the villages and cities know what we are doing. Every constituency in the state has been impacted positively. This is a departure from the past.”
He described the comeback bid of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as laughable, given its performance when it held sway in the state.
“Kwarans have not forgotten what it was like when they were in government. There was no water. Neither salaries nor pensions were paid, let alone gratuity. Nothing was working at all,” he added.
AbdulRazaq reiterated his government’s feat across key sectors, particularly health, education and human capacity, recalling how things had gone south across the sectors under the PDP’s watch.
Kwara APC Chairman, Sunday Fagbemi, said the vehicles were given out for official use and to ease mobility during political activities, as electioneering draws near.
He charged party members to continue to work as a team and for the victory of the governor and other candidates of the party.
“These instruments of work to our local council chairmen are to be used for propagation. You are to use them to campaign for the success of our party in the general elections. And by this, I thank Ashiru for starting this. I believe there are more of these expected of him and other candidates,” Fagbemi said.
On his part, Ashiru remarked that the gesture was to support the governor in his bid to help the party and develop the state.
He added that efforts were being made to strengthen the party’s base across the state, including in his native Offa.
