With utmost sincerity to this mandate, we are glad to use this opportunity to keep Kwarans, home and abroad abreast of all the giant strides that has been achieved in the past 31 months of Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq’s administration across all sectors in the three senatorial districts of the State despite the global economic challenges necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud to say, in many years, this is the first time the three senatorial districts will be experiencing such kind of inclusive development.”

Months ago, the Governor of Kwara State, Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq flagged off the construction and rehabilitation of 700 kilometres of rural roads under Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) in Kwara State.

Anyone who wants to act or disguise under any form of unscrupulous agenda will be dealt with democratically, at the 2023 polls in a victory that will be christened OTOGE RELOADED.”
“Reiteratively, a lot has happened under the leadership of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq and we assure the entire Kwarans home and abroad that the state is on course and committed to addressing the basic needs of its citizenry despite the harsh economic realities. From health sector, basic education, human capital development, safety net for the poor, water, to general infrastructural development, which indicates that Kwara has verifiably left Egypt for the good.”

Finally, we express our gratitude and deep appreciation to our indefatigable Kwara State Party Chairman-elect, Prince Sunday Fagbemi; the party PRO-elect, Alhaji Aro Folaranmi;Sulaiman Lawal, APC State Youth Leader and all members of the state executive, party elders and members of our great party for their cooperation at all levels in the interest of the overall unity of our party and the development of this state.” Lade Concluded.
