Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq hosted the Emir of Ilorin Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari to the annual Bareke on Friday, commending the royal institution for working with the government to sustain peace and harmony, and promote development in the state.

The Governor called on citizens to support President Bola Tinubu whose early policies he likened to a pregnancy course which is sure to birth a more progressive Nigeria.

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) chairman said he was excited that the colourful bareke followed the last two days of colourful celebrations of the Eid and the Durbar which brought together thousands of Kwarans and attracted positive reviews nationwide.

His words: “It is significant that the good relationship between the throne of Sheikh Alimi and the government has waxed stronger. This excellent relationship has helped to strengthen peace and harmony in Kwara State as everyone aligns behind a singular agenda for growth and common good. It serves to reassure the people of Kwara State that growth and development occur more and faster in an atmosphere of love, peace and harmony.

“Your Royal Highness, I assure you that our administration remains committed to communal peace, security, and development. We value collaboration, understanding and mutual respect over unhealthy rivalry among brothers.

“That is because we believe that our agenda for development can only materialize when Kwara is peaceful. The Durbar recorded more crowd yesterday than ever before. Kwarans are happier. I am extremely happy. Our various recreational centres were filled with citizens wanting to have a feel of good life. This is possible because we have peace. We are glad to have great partners in Your Royal Highness and all other traditional rulers. This is the way to go.

“I assure you that our administration will continue to prioritise security of life and properties. We will not allow a few bad eggs and opportunists to change our narrative of being the most peaceful and secure state in Nigeria. Our security agencies will chase these few cowards to the farthest corners of their hideouts.

“Your Royal Highness, I am using this window to again call for the support of our people for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He means well and has the capacity to take tough but right decisions. We believe that whatever temporary pains we see now are the necessary pregnancy course to birth a stronger economy and a more prosperous Nigeria. With your prayers and support, we will succeed, in shaa Allah.”
