No Hiding Place for Cultists – Gov Ahmed
Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed has warned cultists and others who run foul of the law that there would be no hiding place for them in the State.
The governor, who gave this warning in an interview with Journalists in Ilorin, said everything would be done to ensure that the enduring peace in the state is not truncated by hoodlums.
Governor Ahmed advised parents and guardians to take proper care of their wards as the state government would ensure that those found culpable of disrupting peace and harmony with which the state is known would be made to face the law.
According to the governor, “the law is very clear on crime. Anybody who is caught under any guise will face the wrath of the law as cultism is unacceptable in Kwara State”.
On the ongoing biometric verification of workers in the local governments and the State Civil Service, Gov. Ahmed said the exercise would create credible data base to prepare properly for the welfare of the workers in the State.
Gov. Ahmed, who had visited some workers taking part in the exercise at the Ilorin West Local Government Secretariat, said the expected database will also ensure proper planning for the economic and human capital development of the State.
According to the Governor, “Poor planning has impeded planning process, but with this data capturing it will enable us to do proper financial planning for the civil servants, especially with respect to growth and development and of course retirements.
Over 90,000 workers in the State Civil Service, parastatals, local governments, primary and junior secondary school teachers and pensioners are expected to be captured during the biometric exercise expected to be concluded on the 16th, May, 2016.
