Governor AbdulRazaq Visits Oyun Waterworks

As part of his resolve to make sure there is constant water supply across the state and giving life to dry bones of all ministries in Kwara, the Kwara State Governor AbudulRahman AbdulRazaq today visited the Kwara State Water Corporations, Oyun Water Works, Offa for on-site inspections.

The governor who has been taking a self-walk through various sector has since given workers more reasons to work and serve the people.

The Water works have not supplied water for almost a year now with no credible reason as to why they have decided to shut down the pumps than negligence and abandonment by previous administration.

But today, the governor has directed and supported them to pump water and supply it so as to know what is needed to make sure they become more effective and work at an optimal level.

It will be recalled that the Governor has earlier directed that water start flowing in the capital and that has been on for weeks now.

    AbdulRazaq suspends Kwara LG councils for six months

    Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has suspended the 16 Local Government Council Executive and Legislative Committees in line with the earlier recommendation of the State House of Assembly.

    "Pursuant to the resolution of the Kwara State House of Assembly dated this 18th day of June, 2019, and Section 29 of the Kwara State Local Government Law Cap. K33, 2006, I, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, the executive governor of Kwara State, hereby suspend the executive and legislative committees of all the Sixteen (16) Local Government Areas in the state for a period of six months or pending the outcome of the investigations into allegations of misappropriation of public funds by the Kwara State House or Assembly, whichever is earlier in time," according to a statement signed by the Governor on Tuesday.

    The suspension came hours after the House of Assembly recommended the suspension of the local council executive and legislative committees.

    The House had, in the resolution earlier in the day, urged the governor "to immediately suspend all the 16 Local Government Executive and Legislative Committees in the state pending the outcome of the investigation into the allegations of misappropriation of public funds levelled against them so as not to jeopardise the process of investigation".

    Section 29 of the Kwara State Local Government Law Cap. K33, 2006 empowers the governor to suspend the chief executive of the local council for six months.

    The Constitution, on the other hand, empowers the House of Assembly to investigate the local councils for alleged infraction and corruption.
