The Emir said the administration’s accomplishments are apparent and the governor’s hands-on approach to governing is praiseworthy while speaking during the annual traditional Sallah homage known as Bareke on Monday at Government House in Ilorin.

“I have seen that Your Excellency is performing, and you are ready to work more to better the lots of Kwarans. You have just started. It is my wish and prayer that you are given another mandate to achieve more,” the Emir said, praying Allah to grant the governor more strength, good health and required wisdom to fulfill his dreams for the state.

He called on all descendants of Ilorin to continue to exist in love and unity, which he noted are parts of the cardinal objectives of the Ilorin Durbar.

In his response, AbdulRazaq said his administration has institutionalized the Ilorin Durbar and several other festivals in the state by making them important items in public expenditure under culture and tourism.

“This will get better in the coming years as we ramp up investments in tourism and culture,” he added.

“We are in fact not leaving any stone unturned in our drive to make Kwara more prosperous and livable. Among many other initiatives of our administration, the new Ilorin Master Plan should be ready for presentation next month. This will bring many benefits to the entire state.”

The governor commended the Emir and all the traditional rulers and religious leaders in the state for their support in rallying citizens for peaceful coexistence.
