Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Wednesday made a working visit to communities in Ifelodun and Isin local government areas, reassuring them of his administration’s commitment to infrastructural and human capital development in the hinterlands.
The Governor made his first stop at Oke Onigbin and Owu Isin towns where he inspected its moribund water works and some ongoing projects in the area.
Led by Isin TIC Chairman Tunde Fadipe and the Onigbin of Oke Onigbin Oba Salahudeen Kamaldeen, the Governor promised to look into the challenges of the water works which served Iji-Isin, Isanlu Isin, Pamo Isin, Iwo Isin, Sabaja and Owu Isin in the Isin Local Government Area.
The monarch said the area last got public water over a decade ago.
The Governor then toured the Ile-Ire District In Ifelodun local government, beginning from Owode Ofaro where the administration is constructing a bridge connecting the district to Oke Aba town in Isin local government area.
AbdulRazaq’s convoy then touched down Owode, Afin, Ikosin, Idera, Alabe, and the two Oreke communities — an impromptu tour the elated locals said was the first of such by any incumbent Governor since the beginning of this Republic.
He also visited the location of the expansive marble deposits in Oreke, saying the tour offered him an opportunity to interact with the people directly and get feedbacks on government’s activities and programmes, as well as know their other immediate needs.
“It’s mid-term for us. I came to find out on my own the state of infrastructure, education, water, and human capital development in this axis of our state. We are talking and visiting the people to get feedback. Our budget is still in the state house of assembly, some of these feedbacks will be pushed to make sure that the budget is approved in a manner that benefits the people, especially because we are still engaging our lawmakers,” he said, accompanied by the TIC Chairman for Ifelodun Hon. Jide Ashonibare..
“Road construction and infrastructure is an ongoing process. It’s very expensive. We have allocated billions in this 2022 budget to this sector. We have heard the request of our people and we will see what we can do to gradually address these challenges.”
The monarchs took turns to commend the Governor for his unique visits to the area and for the construction of the Awere and Imu bridges that connect the communities, as well the recent recruitment of teachers and construction of school facilities in the area.
They seek the construction of the road which connects the district to ease transportation of farm produce, boost the local economy and development of the area.
Some of the monarchs that hosted the Governor on the impromptu visit included the Olu of Owode Ofaro Oba Raheem Ayilara; Onidera of Idera Oba James Oladipo Buraimoh (African Tiger); and Afetu of Alabe Oba Bamidele Aderounmu.
2023 : One Good Turn Deserves Another As Kwara North Elders Endorses AbdulRazaq, Senator Sadiq For Second Term
Elders of the rulling party,All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara North senatorial district have declared their support for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and Senator Sadiq Umar’s re-election for a second term.
The FidelinfoNews gathered that the APC Elders, in an address prepared by Ambassador Nuruddeen Mohammed, addressed a press conference in Ilorin today Tuesday, saying that the only task left for party delegates at the upcoming party’s primary election on May 26, 2022 is to nominate the governor because no aspirant has expressed intention to contest against him.
“It has been widely acknowledged by our party members and people in the five local government areas of Kwara North senatorial district that the incumbent Senator Sadiq Suleiman Umar has performed and served the people of Kwara North senatorial district with humility, most diligently in the past three years of coming to office,” they added.
“We, therefore, feel that he deserves another opportunity to serve our people and do much more for them,” said the party elders, who based their support for the governor on his stellar performance over the last three years. It is said that “one good turn deserves another.”
Mohammed added “Our position, which is contrary to the decision of the main opposition party, the PDP, which announced recently that its own candidate should emerge from Kwara North Senatorial District, is borne out of the fact that the incumbent and high performing governor, Mallam
AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, is constitutionally entitled to second term of office.
“We are also giving him our support for his re-nomination for the office of governor again because of the fact that in the history of Kwara state, no governor or administrator except him, has done so much to develop the entire state and in particular, Kwara North Senatorial District, in just three years of administration of Kwara state.
“We, therefore, feel that he deserves another opportunity to serve our people and do much more for them. One good turn, it is said, deserves another.”
