Date: 2019-07-03
Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State has called on Nigerians to protect their integrity rather than engage in inordinate pursuit of material wealth.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that Abdulrazaq made the call on Tuesday at the 50th anniversary celebration at the Bar organised in honour of Chief Peter Olorunnisola (SAN) by his children in Ilorin.

The governor, who was represented by his deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi, congratulated and applauded Olorunnisola for his integrity.

Reiterating his respect for Olorunnisola, the governor made reference to how he had long been a household name in the practice of law in the state. He commended him for remaining upright in spite of the temptations prevalent in his profession.

Abdulrazaq called on the people to emulate the sterling qualities of discipline and uprightness of Olorunnisola.

He also harped on the need to love one another, adding that religious tolerance was necessary for peace to reign and to promote meaningful development in the state.

Olorunnisola, in his remarks, appreciated the governor and all the guests for the honour done him.

Expressing optimism that the present administration in the state would succeed, Olorunnisola called on the people to cooperate and offer advice which would move the state forward.
