Ex-Kwara lawmakers endorse Gov. AbdulRazaq for second term

A forum of former Kwara House of Assembly members in the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expressed its support for the re-election of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

The forum, which appraised the performance of Mr AbdulRazaq and gave him a clean bill of health, declared that “there is no alternative to his re-election for a second term, come 2023.”

Members of the forum cut across the assembly members from the first to the eighth republic.

According to the former lawmakers, the three-and-a-half year reign of the governor has witnessed even distribution of resources through the execution of projects across all 24 constituencies in the state.

Spokesperson of the forum, Benjamin Oyeyemi, told journalists in Ilorin that the last two budgets presented by the governor, with capital expenditure getting the lion’s share, were catalysts to the visible business environment and rural and urban development in the state.

“The forum notes that the recently presented 2023 budget proposals, in which capital expenditure took 50.9 per cent, is quite in order, laudable and a welcome development.

“The forum notes with satisfaction the laudable achievements of Malam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in his three-and-a-half years of assumption of office as governor of Kwara.

“His actions and mode of operation have been in such an unprecedented way and manner and have endeared him to the people of the state,” he stated.

Mr Oyeyemi listed some of the projects to include the rehabilitation of Ilesha Baruba and Gwanara township roads, Jebba water works, Tanke/Unilorin road fly-over project and the construction of Osi-Obbo-Aiyeguble road in Ekiti Local Government Area, amongst others.

“After an in-depth, honest and selfless assessment of the governance and administration of Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, we have no alternative than to give our full, unalloyed and unreserved support for his second term as governor of our beloved state.

“We hereby urge the patriotic people of Kwara to support him to win the governorship election in 2023,” he said.

Describing Mr AbdulRazaq as a leader with a difference, the former lawmaker hailed his decision to complete the two projects initiated by his predecessors.

He listed the projects as hostel accommodation at Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin and the construction of the new state secretariat.
