The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has assured people of the state that he would deliver on his campaign promises to avoid being “stoned”.
He gave the assurance during a meeting with top officials of the Kwara State Road Maintenance Agency in Ilorin, the state capital, over the weekend.
AbdulRazaq said he was aware of the high expectations of the people and has resolved to meet their yearning, especially in road construction and provision of other social infrastructure.
“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.”
