Kwara Gov, AbdulRazaq Hosts Emir Of Ilorin, Seeks Collaboration, Support For Tinubu

By Lawal Merit Ifeoma

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq hosted the Emir of Ilorin Dr Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari to the annual Bareke on Friday, commending the royal institution for working with the government to sustain peace and harmony, and promote developments in the state.

The Governor called on citizens to support President Bola Tinubu, who he likened to a pregnant woman who is about to give birth to a stronger and more prosperous Nigeria.

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) chairman said he was excited that the colorful bareke followed the last two days of colorful celebrations of the Eid and the Durbar, which brought together thousands of Kwarans and attracted positive reviews nationwide.

His words: “It is significant that the good relationship between the throne of Sheikh Alimi and the government has been waxing stronger. This excellent relationship has helped to strengthen peace and harmony in Kwara State as everyone aligns behind agendas for growth and common good. It serves to reassure the people of Kwara State that developments can only materialize in an atmosphere of love, peace and harmony.

“Your Royal Highness, I assure you that our administration remains committed to communal peace, security, and developments. We value collaboration, understanding and mutual respect over unhealthy rivalry among brothers.

“That is because we believe that our agenda for developments can only materialize when Kwara is peaceful. The Durbar recorded more crowd yesterday than ever before. Kwarans are happier. I am extremely happy. Our various recreational centers were filled with citizens wanting to have a feel of good lives. This is possible because we have peace. We are glad to have great partners in Your Royal Highness and all other traditional rulers. This is the way to go.

“I assure you that our administration will continue to prioritize security of life and properties. We will not allow a few bad eggs and opportunistic people to change our narrative of being the most peaceful and secure state in Nigeria. Our security agencies will chase these few cowards to the farthest corners of their hideouts.

“Your Royal Highness, I am using this opportunity to again ask 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 preparatory course to birth a stronger economy and a more prosperous Nigeria. With your prayers and support, we will succeed, in shaa Allah.”

The event was well-attended by parliamentarians, senior government officials, bureaucrats, and a retinue of title holders and scholars. Top on the list of the attendees were the Chief Judge of Kwara State Justice Abiodun Adebara; Grand Kadi Justice Abdullateef Kamaldeen; Senator Saliu Mustapha; House of Representatives members Mukhtar Shagaya and Ahmed Yinka Aluko; House of Assembly Deputy Speaker Ojo Olayiwola; House Leader Barrister AbdulKadir Oba Magaji; House of assembly members; Head of Service Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole; permanent secretaries; top party hierarchies led by Chairman Sunday Fagbemi; and the clerics headed by Imam Imale Abdullahi AbdulHameed.
