Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has congratulated the people of the state on the dawn of 2023, praying that the new calendar ushers in glad tidings and greater things for everyone in the state and Nigeria in general.
This was contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye on Saturday in Ilorin.
The governor urged the people to remain committed to building an inclusive state where public resources work for all and everyone can attain their full potentials on the strength of their hard work, talents, and God’s grace and not necessarily on account of any political affiliations.
“As Nigeria inches closer to another general election, the governor appeals to citizens to shun actions or utterances that may jeopardize public peace and safety or put families in danger,” he added.
He also urges continuous support for the security agencies.
The governor said the administration will continue to pursue programmes, policies and projects that deepen opportunities for all, guarantee the dignity of the human person, and reassert the place of Kwara in the northern region and Nigeria as a whole.
He added that the year offers Kwarans a chance to reassert their democratic right to elect leaders who answer only to the citizens and not to any forces or a clique of powerful individuals under whatever guise.
