The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has stated that he will ensure he fulfills his campaign promises so as to avoid being stoned by citizens of the state.
He made this known over the weekend during a meeting with top officials of the Kwara State Road Maintenance Agency in Ilorin, the state capital.
According to AbdulRazaq, he’s aware of the needs of the people especially in road construction and social infrastructure.
He said: “The state of our roads in Kwara is disappointing. This is particularly true of Kwara North.
“There is no road, for instance, to Gwanara especially now that it is raining and yet the contractor handling it is collecting money. That was why the previous administration was stoned (in Gwanara).
“We don’t want to be stoned.
“Kwara people have woken up and if I don’t fix the road, they will protest. So, we will sit with the contractors. We are not sacking or removing them. We want to be proactive so they can do their job.”
