Kwara gov promises to fulfill campaign promises to avoid disgrace

Date: 2019-06-10

Governor Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, has said he is determined to deliver his campaign promises to the people so that he will not be disgraced out of office like those that served before him.

According to a statement on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Rafiu Ajakaye, the governor spoke at a meeting with top officials of the Kwara State Road Maintenance Agency.

AbdulRazaq said he was aware of the high expectations of the people and he had resolved to work for the people, especially on road construction and provision of other social infrastructure.

"The state of our roads (in Kwara) is disappointing. This is particularly true of Kwara North. There is no road, for instance, from Ilesha Baruba to Gwanara, especially now that it is raining; and yet the contractor handling it is collecting money.

"That was why the previous administration was stoned (in Gwanara). We don't want to be stoned," AbdulRazaq said.

The governor was referring to the attacks on the convoy of former President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; and former Governor Abdulfatai Ahmed in Gwanara town where locals protested against the bad state of their road.

He said contractors would only be asked to go if they failed to deliver on the administrationís development agenda and timeline.

"Kwara people have woken up and if I don't fix the road, they will protest. So, we will sit with the contractors. We are not sacking or removing them. We want to be proactive so that they can do their job," he said.

AbdulRazaq said his administration would partner the National Assembly and the Federal Government on how to quickly reconstruct some of the roads in the state.

He directed the Ministry of Works to compile the list of roads that were in bad state so that the government could work out funding options for their rehabilitation.
