Why I will be reelected – Kwara gov
The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has boasted that his reelection for a second term of four years will be a walk in the park.
The governor, who stated this while inaugurating the over 2000-member Kwara State All Progressives Congress Campaign Council, said the achievements of his administration will ease their tasks across the 193 political wards in the state.
“As a government, we have made your job easy because of what we have done in every part of the state. We met dilapidated structures across the state in primary health and education, poor infrastructure, and lack of water supply. We have gone very far to overcome that. We have done exceedingly well across sectors.
“We have stabilised things, and the next few years will serve to consolidate our achievements and position our state for greatness and further empower our people positively, especially young people and women.
“The previous governments couldn’t even pay salaries, pensions, and gratuities in spite of the huge funds that they received. Within the last two months, we have paid about N6bn to clear salary arrears, pensions, and gratuities for 2009, 2010, and now 2011.
“We will continue to upscale on what we have done in the areas of health, education, agriculture, road infrastructure, and social safety net,” the governor was quoted in a statement by his spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaiye.
He charged the council members to consolidate the success recorded in 2019 by ensuring his reelection and that of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
“You are charged to deliver our party just as you did in 2019. The immediate challenge is to deliver Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the next president of Nigeria. Then, you must deliver all our senators and House of Representatives members on the 25th of February, 2023. You should also deliver all our candidates in the March 12 governorship and House of Assembly elections,” AbdulRazaq said.
He also encouraged the youths to learn from the experiences and guidance of elders to guarantee the success of the party.
