Kwara Gov-Elect, Deputy Get Certificates of Return


Kwara State governor-elect, the Deputy Governor-elect and the state lawmakers-elect formally received the Certificate of Return in Ilorin, the state capital penultimate week. In his remarks after receiving the Certificate of Return, the Governor-elect, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq promised to run an all-inclusive government that will include members of the opposition. ‘The state belongs to all. We don’t see anybody as opposition. It is Kwara for all. All hands must be on deck (to rebuild the state). This is a poor state and a lot of work has to be done. We will embrace everybody. When you record a winning margin of 75% as we did, it means that even those on the side of PDP voted for us. So we are going to ensure that we all work together. We are not going to label anybody. There are good people on the other side too. Our members will also be taken care of and our priority will be to rebuild our state. We need to get everyone together for the task ahead and move our state forward. We have a big task ahead of us but we will surmount the challenges ahead by the grace of God. Once again, we thank everyone who took part in the election, either as officials or as voters’, he said.  AbdulRazaq also commended the electoral body, the security agencies and the people of the state for the patriotic roles played while the exercise lasted, he also rated the elections held in Kwara as the most peaceful and orderly while commending the security agencies for checkmating thuggery and potential violence in the state.
