How Kwara state was looted - AbdulRasak

Date: 2019-09-08

Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahaman AbdulRasak, yesterday, disclosed how past governments looted the state. Marking his first 100 days in office, AbdulRasak said he met the state in ruins, citing comatose conditions of socio-economic decay across all sectors.

He said his government, having grasped the true conditions of the state, would recover all stolen wealth, adding that he would also upscale the economic status of the state and her people through proactive policies.

He said: "We don't know what they did with our money. Many banks have closed businesses. Look at the case of Harmony Holdings, which was given a lot of property to manage on behalf of the state, only for them to sell the property to themselves. It was a complete mess."

"By the middle of next year, Holding Harmony will be back to perform its constitutional duties to the state and her people. Our market women and men deserve more. We play the back seat in everything. It appeared the people did not care. But our government will reverse these situations for the better.

"In sports, you need to see the indoor sports hall. It is, indeed, an abandoned project. We will look into that as well. I once represented Kwara State in an Under 16 Tournament. We will look into all sports and not football alone,"he said.

Speaking on the houses owned by the state government, the Governor said, many of the buildings at Government Reservation Area (GRA), Ilorin, were occupied free of charge, noting that "they started paying tokens after elections had been won and lost"
