Tinubu’s early policies will birth progressive Nigeria – AbdulRazaq

Kwara state governor mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq Friday called on citizens to support President Bola Tinubu early policies which he likened to a pregnancy course that is sure to birth a more progressive Nigeria.

He gave the assurance when he hosted the Emir of Ilorin, Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, to the annual Bareke (sallah homage) to Government House.

AbdulRazaq commended the royal institution for working with the government to sustain peace and harmony, and promote development in the state.

The governor said he was excited that the colourful bareke followed the last two days of colourful celebrations of the Eid and the durbar which brought together thousands of Kwarans and attracted positive reviews nationwide.


“Your Royal Highness, I am using this window to again call for the support of our people for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. He means well and has the capacity to take tough but right decisions. We believe that whatever temporary pains we see now are the necessary pregnancy course to birth a stronger economy and a more prosperous Nigeria. With your prayers and support, we will succeed, in shaa Allah”, he said.

Accompanied by many royal title holders and community leaders, the emir commended the governor for standing for peace and harmony, and his investment in human capital and infrastructural development of the state.

“We thank Almighty Allah for the success of the election for the second term. While we were rejoicing over that, there was an announcement that our governor has been conferred with the Commander of the Order of Niger (CON),” he said.

“Another message also came in that you have been elected the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum. Our governor has got triple honours. We are very grateful.

“You are making history on the part of Kwara state. We are not one tribe. Kwara state is a heterogeneous community with many ethnic groups. But we are the most manageable. We may be speaking differently occasionally. But in heart and understanding, we are able to understand ourselves.

“We came here again, having returned (you) to your post for a second term. God that gave you the success in the first term will make you succeed in the second term. May you continue to shine”, the emir said.
