A group, Accountable Leadership for Better Nigeria Initiative (ALBNI) has accused the outgoing Governor of Kwara State, Abdulfatah Ahmed, and the House of Assembly of setting the incoming administration of Governor-Elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazak, up for failure.
In a statement by its Executive Director in charge of Sensitisation, Mr Remi Adebayo, berates the government for some recent appointments which, it said, is nothing but “booby traps” for the Governor-Elect.
The group also described the enactment of the law by the assembly precluding the state governor from tampering with local government administrations in the state and the recent appointment of a acting vice chancellor for the state university by Ahmed as an act of executive recklessness.
A part of the statement read, “After a crushing defeat at the polls, where the PDP, led by Dr. Bukola Saraki, lost woefully all elective offices in the 2019 general elections, the executive and the legislature in the state are working in an unholy alliance to erect booby traps for the in-coming administration.
“The sudden appointment of an acting vice chancellor for the Kwara State University and the directive that the incumbent Vice Chancellor, Prof. AbdulRasheed Na’Allah, should proceed on terminal leave smacks of executive recklessness.”
It would be recalled that in the governorship elections of March 9, the party of the incumbent governor, PDP, lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
