Abdulrazaq Pledges Commitment To Kwara People

Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, the Kwara state Governor-elect has promised that his administration will not fail the people of the state.

He also stressed that his government will fight against all forms of corruption and will not loot the state’s treasury.

Abdulrazaq gave his submission while giving his acceptance speech amidst All Progressive Congress (APC) party supporters and leaders on Sunday night in Ilorin.

In his words, “Kwara people have decided and that has put a lot of responsibilities on us. We cannot afford to fail and we cannot afford to steal and loot the treasury.

“God forbid that after three years, people will regret that why did they vote this new government. I can assure you that will not happen.

“We will work tirelessly as a team to deliver and make sure people start feeling the effects of government and dividends of democracy.”

Also present at the event were Mr Kayode Alabi Kwara Deputy Governor-elect, Alhaji Lai Mohammed the Minister of Information and Culture and APC leader in the state and Bashir Bolarinwa, the Kwara APC Chairman, among others.

Recall as earlier reported by Naija News, INEC declared Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of the APC winner of Saturday’s governorship election in Kwara state having polled a total of 331,546 votes to defeat Abdulrazaq Atunwa of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 114,754 votes.

Speaking further on Sunday, the APC flag bearer said Kwarans will not regret voting for him and his party.

“Kwara people have decided and that has put a lot of responsibilities on us. We cannot afford to fail and we cannot afford to steal and loot the treasury.

“God forbid that after three years, people will regret that why did they vote this new government. I can assure you that will not happen.

“We will work tirelessly as a team to deliver and make sure people start feeling the effects of government and dividends of democracy,’’ he said.

While noting the role played by traditional institutions and the need to revive Kwara’s economy, the governor-elect also promised to address the security situation in the state, particularly adding that the Offa bank robbery saga will be investigated.

“This development is seriously affecting the economic development in the zone. We will interface with the Police to address the challenge of insecurity.

“The Offa robbery where 33 people were killed, based on police investigation was linked to top government officials.

“We will also interface with the Police to ensure that the judicial process is logically concluded and perpetrators are brought to book.”

“We will set up a transition committee that will interface with the government and we will have a forensic audit of the paying system to formulate new policies.

“We will organise health care summit. Education summit and special summit on how to improve the state infrastructure,’’ he said.
