I will remain responsible, responsive, AbdulRazaq promises Kwara residents
Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq yesterday promised to remain responsible and responsive to the people of the state.
The governor made the promise while taking the oath of office for a second term.
The inauguration, which started at exactly 8:10 a.m, lasted 45 minutes.
Both the governor and his deputy, Kayode Alabi, were accompanied by their spouses – Mrs. Olufolake AbdulRazaq and Mrs. Abieyuwa Alabi – as well members of their families and friends.
The state’s Chief Judge, Justice Abiodun Adebara, administered the oaths on the deputy governor before the governor took his at the Government House’s Council Chamber.
Shortly after his inauguration, the governor set out his spending priorities, saying his second tenure would see him building on the gains of the last four years — all of which he credited to the support of the people of the state.
He said: “The next four years will consolidate the gains of our first tenure and lay new foundations for sustained socioeconomic development and institutional growth. We are going to deepen the reforms and investments in the critical sectors, like education, healthcare delivery, civil service welfare, social safety programmes, general infrastructural upgrade and renewals, focused expansion of our economic base, and promotion of a political culture that advances self-reliance and growth.”
The governor also laid out other priority areas his administration will embark on in the next four years.
Dignitaries at the ceremony included the Emir of Ilorin and Chairman of the Kwara State Council of Chiefs, Dr. Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, who led all the first-class monarchs to the event.
Others included the scion of the AbdulRazaqs and Mutawali of Ilorin, Dr. Alimi Abdulrazaq; House of Assembly Speaker Yakubu Danladi Salihu, lawmakers; the Grand Kadi, Justice Abdullateef Kamaldeen; Head of Service, Mrs. Susan Modupe Oluwole; State Exceutive Council (Exco) members, led by Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Mamman Saba Jubril; captains of industry, labour leaders, and media executives.
A statement by the Head of Service, Mrs. Susan Modupe Oluwole, congratulated Ajakaye for the reappointment.
She admonished the CPS to rededicate himself to his responsibility as the governor’s spokesperson.
