The Kwara state government has revealed a shocking revelation about the previous administration of Mr. Abdulfatah Ahmed in the north-central state.
Naija News understands that Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Rock yesterday accused his predecessor of mismanaging resources of the state, thereby making his deputy to live in a rented apartment.
“What we met was that, they have sold virtually about 110 government properties including the deputy governor’s residence, our deputy governor is staying in rented accommodation, they just shared everything,” he said.
“It’s so painful, we have to develop alternative means of generating revenue and that is why we have to be enterprising in the way we do our things. I came to see the president to wish him good tidings for the new year and also with a shopping list because our state is in dire streaks. When we got in, there was a total collapse in the state start from education. Our four colleges of education were on strike for a year.
He also said when he took over, there was no running water anywhere, but within two months, his government had fixed the problem.
He also said the state’s civil service has been clearing backlog of debts because his predecessor stopped paying full salary since 2013.
The former governor, Ahmed has however denied illegally selling any government property, noting that all properties sold by his administration followed due process after due approval by the state executive council.
