Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq said on Thursday that no part of the state is without the projects or beneficiaries of various programmes of the administration — whether in road, potable water, healthcare, or social investment for the vulnerable.
AbdulRazaq said residents of every part of the state can attest to the projects and programmes, adding that the impacts are felt and are without any propaganda.
The Governor spoke in Ilorin, the state capital, as he handed over the keys of seven campaign vehicles that Senator Lola Ashiru (Kwara South) purchased for the seven local government areas of the senatorial district.
He commended the Senator — and others — for complementing his efforts to transform Kwara and serve the citizens better.
“Let me congratulate Senator Lola Ashiru for adding to what we are doing in the State. The vehicles being donated will go a long way in our mobilization process,” the Governor said.
“Campaigns have not started but we need to start planning. This is a 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 said the PDP’s comeback bid is laughable, given its abysmal record that included non-payment of workers and collapse of basic amenities across 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, not to talk of the gratuity. Nothing (basic) was working at all,” he added.
AbdulRazaq reiterated the government’s feats across key sectors particularly, health, education, and Civil Service, recalling how things had gone south across these sectors under the PDP watch.
State APC Chairman, Prince Sunday Fagbemi, for his part, said the vehicles were given out for official use and to ease mobility during political activities, as campaigns draw 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 government 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 Senator Lola Ashiru for starting this. I believe there are more of these expected of him and other candidates,” Fagbemi said.
Senator Ashiru, in his remarks, said the gesture was to support the Governor in his bid to support the party and develop the State.
He said efforts are being made to strengthen the party’s base across the state, including in his native Offa.
Ashiru said APC is headed for another landmark victory in the 2023 ballot.
“What we are doing here today is a little addition to what the Governor has been doing to better the lots of Kwarans,” he said.
Speaking to newsmen after receiving his car key, Ekiti LG Chairman (APC), Hon. Awolewa Olawale, thanked the donor for deeming it fit to support them, and promised to use the vehicle to mobilise people and ensure victory for all the APC candidates at the polls.
