By Saka Laaro, Ilorin

The Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has appreciated the people of Ibagun ward in Ilorin East local government area of the state for their support for his administration.

The governor spoke during the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward executives at the Government Day Secondary School, Amule-Okelele, Ilorin.

He commended the APC members in the ward for holding a peaceful and hitch- free congress.

AbdulRazaq assured the people of the area of more developmental projects.

The governor used the opportunity of the event to welcome the former state organising secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sulyman Buhari back to the fold of APC, describing him as ‘omo wale.’

Earlier, the Ibadun ward APC chairman, AbdulRauf Adanla, had said that the people of Ibagun/ Okelele community  are overwhelmed by the number of projects the  AbdulRazaq’s administration has executed in the area in the last two years.

He also praised the governor for appointing indigenes of the area into key political offices. He, therefore, expressed their support for AbdulRazaq’s second term bid.

Adanla listed the projects executed in the area by the AbdulRazaq’s administration to include the construction of Jagun/Alagbado road, Larokun/GDSS Amule road, Alawo/Dada/Alagbado road and the citing of the Infectitious Diseases Centre in Alagbado.

The chairman listed government appointees from the area to include the Special Adviser on  Strategy, Alh Saadu Salau, Senior Special Assistant on Security, Alh Muyideen Aliyu and Technical Assistant on Agriculture, AbdulQawwiy Cook- Olododo; and a host of board members.

While apologising on behalf of the people of Ibagun ward to the governor over the recent verbal attacks on his personality by a political office holder from Ibagun ward, Adanla said: “The people of Ibagun ward appreciate the love of the governor for them and are solidly behind him.”

He advised the concerned political office holder to face his legislative work in Abuja and stop further verbal attacks on the governor “who has come to wipe the tears of the people of Kwara State and rescue the state from the yolk of underdevelopment which had been its lot before the advent of AbdulRazaq’s administration.”

In his lecture, the renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Umar Faruq  Babatunde, acknowledged the giant strides of the administration of Governor AbdulRazaq in the last two years and prayed God to grant the governor a successful tenure.

The event was attended by Alh Bashiru Adigun ( SA, Political Communications), Alhaja Bolanle Ismail (SA, Women Empowerment), Alh Isiaka Danmaigoro (SA, Religion), Dr Ghali Alaaya, APC stalwarts; Alh Obalowu Amule and Alh Sulyman Buhari and a state lawmaker, Hon. Ali Jimoh.
