Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq yesterday described the comeback bid of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to power in the state as laughable.
He said the many years of PDP’s administration were disappointing, adding that under PDP, non-payment of workers’ salaries and collapse of basic amenities were the in-thing.
“Kwarans have not forgotten what it was like when they were in government. There was no water. Neither salaries nor pensions were paid, let alone gratuity. Nothing (basic) was working at all,” he added.
AbdulRazaq reiterated government’s feats across key sectors, particularly, health, education and civil service, recalling how things had gone bad across the sectors under the PDP watch.
He said no part of the state was without the projects or beneficiaries of programmes of his administration – whether in road, potable water, health care, or social investment for the vulnerable.
The governor said residents could attest to the projects and programmes, adding that the impacts were felt and were without any propaganda.
The governor spoke in Ilorin when handing over the keys of seven campaign vehicles that Senator Lola Ashiru (Kwara South) purchased for the seven local governments in the senatorial district.
“The vehicles being donated will go a long way in our mobilisation process.
“Campaigns have not started, but we need to start planning. This is a planning period. We have done well. People in the villages and cities know what we are doing. Every constituency in the state has been impacted positively. This is a departure from the past,” he said.
