Kwara North needs a special attention, says governor-elect

Date: 2019-03-12

Kwara State governor-elect, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Monday said more attention would be paid to the north senatorial district in infrastructural development.

"Kwara North needs special attention in terms of development. This doesn't mean we will not develop other areas. We will but there is total lack of infrastructure in Kwara North,” AbdulRazaq said at a get-together held in Ilorin, the state capital.

Attended by all the elected officials under APC's umbrella, the event had been called to appreciate the APC members and leaders following the huge success at the polls.

AbdulRazaq said everything would be done to justify people's confidence in him and other APC lawmakers-elect.

He said his campaign tours of the state exposed him to the huge infrastructure deficits in the state, especially in the northern district of Kwara.

"We'll therefore pay particular attention to Kwara North because it is totally deprived. We do not want anybody to think they are getting unfair advantage when we do this. It is just the proper thing to do."

Thanking Kwarans and party members for their support, AbdulRazaq acknowledged the “enormous expectations” from the electorate, saying however that he would do his best to serve the best interest of the people.

The administration would also pay special attention to women development and inclusiveness in form of appointments, he said.

Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, while speaking at the occasion, said failure was not an option for the incoming APC government but called for understanding and patience from the people.

"The expectations are very high and we must take advantage of their enthusiasm to ensure we deliver the dividend of democracy," he said.

"The honeymoon may not last more than three months unless we do well. We can't afford to fail them. In less than a year, people of Kwara will see a difference between us and the outgoing political dynasty. We appeal to Kwarans to be patient because it is easier to destroy than to build.
