Ilorin, Kwara State– Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Friday inaugurated a 26-year-old woman,  Nafisat Musa Buge as the Commissioner for Youth Development.

The governor charged Commissioner Buge and other cabinet members to serve as exemplary representatives of their constituencies both within and outside of the government.

AbdulRazaq, through his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, said her pick was on the strength of her “antecedents as a progressive political activist, her modest contributions to the growth of the party in her community and her passion and consistent support for the administration”.

“You are joining an administration with a rich profile in youth empowerment, gender inclusion, community development, prudence, accountability, empathy for the poor and vulnerable, service and responsiveness to the plight of the people,” the Governor said.
