The newly sworn-in Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq has pledged his commitment to better the fortunes of Kwara State, in such a way that it differs greatly from the efforts of past administrations.
Sworn-in as the seventh executive governor of the state, Abdulrazaq said his administration will ransack details of how the state’s resources were expended in the past, while also hinting on his resolve for prudent spendings.
“We are confident that we shall, together, make Kwara great again through prudent deployment of resources, involving the people in policy-making, interrogating past decisions only to the extent that they enable us to move forward,” he emphasized.
In pursuit of his deep-seated ambition of making Kwara State ‘a departure from the past,’ the governor laid himself open to constructive criticism, reiterating his position of always putting Kwarans first in all policies and programmes of his government.
“Today, I invite you all to join hands with us in government to repair and rebuild Kwara. I invite constructive criticism and urge you all to utilise our open-door policy to communicate ideas and suggestions to us.
“In all our policies, programmes and actions, the people of Kwara shall always come first,” he said.
