I’ve stabilised Kwara for growth, development – Gov

The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has said his administration stabilised the state for growth and development during his first term.

The governor stated this while giving an account of his stewardship when he met with Lagos State-based Kwara professionals during the weekend, according to a statement signed by his spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye, on Monday.

Debriefing his audience on the journey since he took office in 2019, AbdulRazaq boasted that he recorded measurable strides across different sectors.

“We have been deliberate in spreading development, and we are glad that our people have a better sense of ownership of their state today than ever before. What we have done is stabilise Kwara for growth and development.

“We have many road projects across the state. We have designed a sustainable development plan, an agricultural master plan, and a new master plan for our capital city, and we are designing for other parts of the state. We are planning different industrial parks, including one at Eiyenkorin, another in Kwara South, and an agro-processing factory in Kwara North,” the statement quoted him as saying.

The governor said his administration met a collapsed basic education sector while the Colleges of Education were all down owing to nonpayment of salaries and lack of accreditation.

He said the administration has been able to turn things around in the area of infrastructural and human resource development, welfare for workers, and the introduction of technology to give the Kwara child a headstart in life.

The governor added that the state is attracting different positive attention and investments, including an upcoming $50m Olam project for which some lands are being allocated and a share of the $10bn renewable energy project to be funded by the US government.
