It was gathered that the INEC National Commissioner in charge of Kogi, Kwara and Niger states, Professor Sanni Muhammed Adam (SAN), during his remark at the event, said the 2023 general elections would go down in history as one of the finest elections ever conducted in Nigeria, because it was peaceful, especially in Kwara state.

While congratulating the governor and others, he said “The elections that brought about this success will go down in history as one of the finest elections ever conducted in Nigeria. We are proud to say so unequivocally because it was not only successful but very peaceful.

“I congratulate the reelected Governor of Kwara state, his deputy, and all the House of Assembly members-elect present today for their victories.”

The governor in an acceptance speech assured the people of Kwara that he would remain just as responsive and empathetic to the yearnings of the citizens as he has always been.

He submitted that “This certificate represents the collective decision of our people to push forward our agenda for sustainable development in Kwara State. It symbolizes their trust in our efforts to build a state in which everyone has equal stakes. I do not take this trust for granted.

“I am reassuring our people that our government will continue to be empathetic, inclusive, and responsive as our resources permit.

“In the next four years, we plan to see through our legacy projects and reforms across different sectors.

“Beyond building physical infrastructure, I believe that Kwara requires a new thinking that not only protects the dignity of the human person but also guarantees sustainable growth. We need everyone to make this happen, irrespective of where we stand in politics or faith.

“I thank everyone for their roles in making today a reality. I am grateful to our traditional and religious institutions, civil servants, party leaders and members, artisans and professionals, students, security agencies, electoral umpires, and indeed the general public. This mandate represents your trust in our ability to do much more.
