The Executive Governor of Kwara state, Alhaji Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman has been nominated for the Governor of the Year Award by the organizers of North-Central Service Awards in recognition of Governor Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman contributions towards community development, empowerment drives and good governance.
The Governor was nominated through a transparent voting system participated by Nigerians especially those who reside in the North Central states of Nigeria.
This unassuming leader, who is today, the symbol of the “O to ge” (Enough is enough) political movement that brought about a change in political structure in Kwara state,in his 100 days in office focused cost-saving initiatives so as to free up funds for developmental projects.
Under Abdulrazaq’s leadership, the era of chartered flights through which past administrations fleeced the lean resources of the state had gone for ever as he is always seen on queues of most of the commercial airlines in the country.
In addition, the successful billionaire, Chairman First fuels, paid unscheduled visits to most of the ministries, departments and agencies in the state, so as to appreciate the challenges that have made them not to function effectively
For Kwara, where potable water supply was a challenge, he has in the last 100 days displayed his commitment to addressing the challenge.
Having inspected the water dams across the state, the governor had immediately released N48.5 million for their repairs and today water has returned into the pipes of many homes.
Following his determination to give education in the state a facelift, he has also halted the ongoing industrial action across Kwara State Colleges of Education he inherited with the immediate payment of N250 million to pay at least two months of their outstanding salaries.
The foregoing clearly showed that the governor is building the foundation for a prosperous Kwara, and it is expected that in the coming months, the benefits of some of the initiatives and projects he has put in place would manifest.
