Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has reiterated his administration’s commitment towards reviving Moribund companies in the state.
Governor Abdulrazaq disclosed this when the ENACT in conjunction with Kwara Development Group, USA hosted him to a dinner and a fireside session in United States over the weekend.
The dinner parley was organised to appreciate the Governor on many developmental strides and recognition of same by well meaning Kwarans. Recently, the Governor bagged a well-deserved Leadership Newspaper Governor of the Year 2020 award.
According to Engr. Nurudeen Adeyemi who spoke at the event, the ENACT friends and families showed the Excellency the gratitude and appreciation for all the great works being done on behalf of our great State and its people. We congratulated the Governor on the many strides in Education, healthcare, security, Infrastructural development, Social Safety net, prudent management of state’s resources, level playing field for government employment and contracting opportunities for local contractors and others.
Governor Abdulrazaq while sharing his vision for our state, promised to put many of our people to work with the hope of earning a living wage apart from a minimum wage, noted that “Minimum wage guarantees a worker a take home wage while a living wage ensures that a worker can live an honest living while taking care of his family without needing any side hustle or sharp practices.”
He said the administration is working towards making Kwara an economic hub with its attendant effects on revenue generation, job creation, and good living for the people.
The Governor said the state has a laser focus plan to develop the Osi and Ilesha Baruba Campuses of KWASU as well as revive moribund industries in our state, thereby putting our people to work. The Okin Biscuits conglomerate can become a centre of employment excellence for our people. Infrastructure and critical roads projects in Kwara South are especially important to our beloved Governor.*
Designing and implementing all these working plans are what stand out progressive governance, which translates to empowering individuals and families for the betterment of the society.
