The All Progressives Congress (APC) has felicitated with the Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said “Our great party celebrates a philanthropist, shrewd businessman and an astute administrator who has brought to bear his wealth of experience in the governance of Kwara State.”
He said since Governor AbdulRazaq’s government was inaugurated, as the seventh elected Governor of Kwara State, he has ditched the era of profilgacy and graft that has crippled the state’s lean resources and arrested its development.
According to him, “He is instead institutionalising corporate governance and prudence in the running of government.
“He has demonstrated early, the administration’s resolve to focus on pro-people initiatives and adopt a hands on approach in the administration’s redemptive efforts to reposition Kwara State.
“The positive impact of Governor AbdulRazaq governance style has been immediate and evident in different sectors of the state – infrastructure, education, health, social amenities and other government services”, he added.
Furthermore, he said to name a few, that under the Governor AbdulRazaq administration, the inherited water supply crisis has been resolved with water now running in most parts of Ilorin, the state capital, coupled with the near completion of the rehabilitation and upgrade of the state’s four major water works located in Ilorin, Lafiagi, Patigi, and Igbaja.
“The previously moribund state-run media outfits Radio, Kwara Television and The Herald are receiving attention.
“Through planning, funds injection and reorganisation, several state-run educational and health institutions are being repositioned and given a new lease of life, particularly for the benefit of the poor and vulnerable.
“The APC family prays for good health, long life and wisdom as Governor AbdulRazaq builds a Kwara State that works for everyone”, he said.
