The Kwara State chapter of the Alliance of Collaborating Political Parties (ACPP) has thrown its weight behind Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for credible performance in his barely five months old administration.
The group said the Governor had, upon assumption of office, been steering the ship of the state creditably well and deserved the support of all.
In a statement signed by its State Chairman, Prince Deji Oyekunle; State Secretary, Prince Bayo Akadi and State Publicity Secretary, Comrade Abdulkareem Onagun respectively, the group said the state government had recorded modest achievements with the payment of counterpart fund to Universal Basic Education Board (UBEC) and the Governor’s visit to the state owned tertiary institutions aimed at giving face lift to infrastructure in them.
It also lauded the state government for the rehabilitation of roads in Ilorin and Omu-Aran as well as its intervention in other critical areas and called on the Governor not to rest on his oars.
The ACPP saluted the courage and sincerity of the Governor in improving the lots of the people.
It acknowledged the right of the Governor in the selection and appointment of members of his cabinet and urged Kwarans to accord the state Commissioners-designate maximum support as soon as they are sworn-in and assigned portfolios.
The group also noted that it is the equal right of every Kwaran to make demands and agitate but appealed that those chosen be given the benefit of doubt in the onerous task of contributing their quota to the development of the state.
It, however, urged the commissioners-designate to toe the line of the Governor in actualising his vision for the state.
“On behalf of the entire membership of Alliance of Collaborating Political Parties (Group of registered political parties) in Kwara State, we wish to state that Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has performed creditably well in steering the ship of the State of Harmony since his assumption of office, so far, so good
“Of particular reference are the modest achievements in the area of education, which included payment of counterpart fund to UBEC/official visits to educational institutions across the three senatorial districts of the state preparatory to phase lifting the infrastructural provisions in our schools.
“Also the commencement of road rehabilitation particularly in Ilorin, Omu-Aran and other areas are other achievements that could be physically seen. These trends, we want its sustainability as Kwarans are yearning for more dividends of democracy”, the group said.
