Kwara state governor, Alh Abdulfatah Ahmed today assured that the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship candidate, Hon. Razak Atunwa will ensure the welfare and wellbeing of Kwarans if elected.

Ahmed added that if elected, Atunwa would also place high premium on the welfare of traditional rulers in the state.

The governor gave the assurance at the palace of Olupo of Ajase-Ipo in Irepodun local government area of the state during the PDP campaign tour of the area.

He said that the PDP’s governorship candidate had garnered the requisite experience at both the legislative and executive arms of government to bring the dividends of democracy to the doorsteps of the people of the state.

“Atunwa has seen it all in the area of governance. He was a commissioner for Information, Works and Finance in this state. He has also been the speaker of the state House of Assembly. And currently, he is a member of the House of Representatives,” he said.

Ahmed urged Kwarans to vote massively for all the PDP candidates during the forthcoming elections in the state.

In Oro, a few kilometers away from Ajase-Ipo, Governor Ahmed promised to elevate the status of the monarch to first class.

He added that the state General Hospital in Oro would soon be rehabilitated.

“The rehabilitation of the hospital has been approved. My administration will soon cash-back that,’ he said.

Speaking earlier, Atunwa promised that his administration would ensure equity and fairness in running the affairs of the state.

He added that his government would prioritise youth employment and empowerment by encouraging entrepreneurship, saying, “I will also empower the women.”
