I Can Not Share Government Money With You, AbdulRazaq Replies Critics
The governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Friday replied members of his party who criticised him for not sharing government money with them like previous administrations.
He maintained that he would rather continue to share projects across the nooks and crannies of the state than sharing money with them.
The governor while briefing journalists at the Government House, Ilorin on his administration’s achievements in the last one year also noted that his government inherited moribund sectors and a state with huge water scarcity, unfunded education system, uncompleted and abandoned projects, moribund health care system, agriculture and infrastructure.
On clamour for sharing government money, the governor said, “Our people have been complaining that we are not sharing government money since we came but I’m not going to do that. I will rather continue to share projects to every part of the state like I’m doing. It was the past administration’s penchant for sharing money that put them into trouble in last year’s general elections.”
As parts of measures to ensure the spread of development to every part of the state, AbdulRazaq said that his administration would soon roll out new state master plans in economy, energy and agricultural sectors.
He recalled that when he took over one year ago, the state was below zero level saying”everything was moribund when we came in, the education system and other sectors were in disarray”
He explained that the situation in the education sector of the state was worsened by the fact that the previous administrations did not invest in it and other sectors.
He said in the last one year his administration has revamped the state education sector and Kwara has become one of the best four states in heath care delivery because of its approach and handling of the COVID 19 issue
