 We won’t Listen To Lies Against You, Kwara Monarchs Throw Weight Behind Abdulrazaq’s Second Term Bid

You are such a wonderful Governor.

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has reinstated his administration’s commitment towards redistributing wealth and basic infrastructure, on the well-being of the people in the rural communities.

The governor disclosed this at the weekend through his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye during a Village Square meeting in Onila/Omido communities, Irepodun local government of Kwara State.

Mr AbdulRazaq said the meeting became necessary to hear from every corner of the state as part of the government’s strategy to spread development to all parts of the state.

Onila, a village just a few kilometres away from Agbamu in Irepodun LG, also shares boundaries with Agidingbi, Omido, and Labaka.

Onila recently shot to the limelight following their widely reported lack of school building and other basic amenities. The administration has since built school and water facilities, while some nearby communities have also been linked to the national electricity grid.

The government called for the Onila Village Square meeting to further interact with the residents of the communities.

The meeting was broadcast live on Radio Kwara Midland 99.1 FM; TNT Ijagbo 102.5 FM; and Igbomina Radio 90.9 FM to reach a wider audience.

The Governor pledged to look into the new requests, especially more teachers and roads.

He said the government is also willing to support them with farm inputs, and to equip their healthcare facility, asking citizens to always provide constructive feedbacks on government’s activities for improved welfare.

The Governor’s convoy was received by the House of Assembly member representing Irepodun Hon. Felix Tayo Awodiji; TIC Chairman for Irepodun LGA Hon. Jide Oyinloye; Alapa of Omido HRH Oba John Adegboyega Amunyun-Bole (II); King of TIV settlers High Chief Geoffrey Ajon; other high chiefs; and hundreds of residents in the area.

Oba Adegboyega said it was a first to host an incumbent governor in Onila/Omido, let alone them enjoying any infrastructural project.

“If anyone had narrated a dream of seeing a governor ever visiting our village, I would ask the dreamer to return to sleep. We never believed Onila could enjoy this government’s attention so much or be brought to good limelight with the presence of developmental projects. We are really grateful,” he said.

The monarch thanked the present administration for impacting their lives, and for showing them that everyone matters.

Mr AbdulRazaq, on his way going, also visited the Palace of the Arigbamu of Agbamu, HRH Oba Samuel Olushola, where he reiterated his government’s plan to fix their link road.

“We are grateful to Your Excellency for every good things your government has brought to us. For this, we will vote for you. I will even make myself available to mobilise support among the chiefs in Agbamu and its environs for your re-election,” he said.

“You are such a wonderful Governor. Sometimes, I wonder what other political parties will campaign with if at all they come here,” he said.
