Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, governor of Kwara state, says his administration is dedicated to fulfilling its marketing campaign guarantees in order to not be stoned “like my predecessor”.
He stated this throughout a gathering with high officers of the Kwara State Street Upkeep Company (KWARTMA), in Ilorin, the state capital, on Sunday.
The governor listed highway development and social infrastructure amongst his targets.
Abdulrazaq expressed concern over the poor state of roads, saying the contractors employed by the earlier administration is not going to be sacked however informed to shortly full ongoing tasks.
“I’ve resolved to work for the individuals, particularly in highway development and different social infrastructure,” he stated.
“The state works ministry will compile the checklist of roads which can be in unhealthy form in order that the federal government can work out funding choices for his or her rehabilitation.
“The state of our roads (in Kwara) is disappointing. That is notably true of Kwara north. There isn’t a highway, as an example, to Gwanara particularly now that it’s raining and but the contractor dealing with it’s gathering cash.
“That was why the earlier administration was stoned (in Gwanara). We don’t wish to be stoned.
“Kwara individuals have woken up and if I don’t repair the roads, they’ll protest, so we’ll sit down with the contractors, we aren’t sacking them, we wish to be proactive to allow them to do their jobs.”
Abdulfatah Ahmed was governor of Kwara from 2011 to 2019.
