Government warns against purchase of govt properties

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Tuesday said he has embarked on statewide visit of various government facilities to fully appreciate the extent of the rot in the system.

AbdulRazaq said the rots were so much and needed proper planning spanning multiple budget years to fix.

"I have come to see things for myself. We have always known that the rot is unimaginable. But it is important that I see things for myself," he told reporters during his visit to the magistrate court at Sango in Ilorin, the state capital, which had long collapsed.

"I have seen things for myself and I have asked the Chief Judge (and his team) to raise a memo, stating what the problems are and what we can do to solve them in short and long term."

AbdulRazaq said he would ensure that the judiciary is given the support it needed to function as an independent arm of government.

Chief Judge of the State Suleiman Kawu told the Governor he had long prepared a report detailing the problems faced in the sector, especially the decrepit state of the facilities and lack of any modern courtrooms.

"I will soon forward the report to you and I trust that you will do your best to address the problems," he said when the Governor visited his office.

AbdulRazaq also visited the Shariah Court of Appeal on Ahmadu Bello Way and Customary Court at Centre Igboro.

The Government, meanwhile, said it has not authorised the sale of any of its properties within or outside of the state.

A statement by the committee the governor set up to review sale of Government properties cautioned "the general public against buying or sale of government properties in which Government has interest now/before ranging from Government Quarters, Chalets, farmlands, vehicles, and equipment etc."

The committee said anyone who buys such properties does so at their own risk.
