Kwara Monarch Endorses Gov. AbdulRazaq For Second Term

Emir of Yaskikira, Baruten in local government area of Kwara Alhaji Umar S. Usman at the weekend urged Governor AbdulRaman Abdulrazaq to take another shot at the governorship seat in 2023.

Emir Usman said that outstanding performance, humility, and respect of the Governor for the traditional institutions and culture are legendary.

The first class monarch added these attributes have earned the Governor widespread acceptance among the people and a right of first refusal if he chooses to run for another term in 2023.

Addressing crowds of Yashikira sons and daughters when the Governor led his entourage to the 10th anniversary of the coronation of the emir, the traditional ruler asserted AbdulRazaq had in the last two years fully identified himself with the masses’ aspirations and executed several laudable projects across the state, including in Baruten local government.

The first class emir said they had resolved to have the Governor on the saddle for the next six years if he decides to run for another term in 2023, commending him for changing the face of governance in the state.

“We thank you for the rehabilitation of our schools. All our classrooms were almost gone down before you came in but you made sure that those classrooms have been rehabilitated,” the emir said.

“We are aware of what you have been doing to make sure that we have not only potable water but water for irrigation by making sure that the earth dam in our area is well constructed.

“We thank you also for ensuring the provision of alternative energy source with the installation of solar panels in different places pending the time the ongoing installation of electricity poles from Ilesha-baruba to Okuta to Boriya will get to Yashikra. It is what we can see. We thank you very much.

“I want to also thank you for the support you are giving to the traditional council of Kwara State by allowing us to function properly and without backing down orders or dividing us.

“I want to assure you that our people of Kaiama and Baruten are supporting your government. Whatever you decide we shall support you because we know that you are serving us. You will continue to serve us positively for the next six years, God willing.”

The emir’s assertion had earlier been corroborated by his counterpart in Okuta, Alhaji Abubakar Idris Serobetete II.

He hailed the Governor for an array of projects already executed in Baruten and across Kwara north, including a radio station which will be ready soon.

The Governor commended the traditional institutions in the state for their support for the administration especially in the area of security of lives and properties.
