Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq disclosed this on Saturday during Celebration Dinner Organized by Liberation Movement O2 (Otoge! Otope) held at Kwara Hotel.

The Governor Elect represented by Malam Jida said he use his first 100 days to rehabilitate and empower ‘good boys’ who voluntarily renounce their bad behavior by helping them to continue their education or give them vocational training.

He noted that his administration would not tolerate youth restiveness, cultism and other social vices, saying 'it's no longer business as usual. You must work to earning a living'.
