… Urges Govt To Prioritise Security Of Lives, Property
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kwara state has extended her warm and joyous greetings to all Christians and fellow Kwarans on the auspicious occasion of Christmas celebration, commemorating the humble birth of Jesus Christ at Bethlehem.
In a message signed by its State Publicity Secretary, Olusegun Olusola Adewara (Sholyments), the Party praised Christians all over the world, particularly those in Kwara for their dedication and commitment to a peaceful Kwara and urged them to intensify prayer for divine intervention to put the state back to its old prosperous ways.
“As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, let us reflect upon His teachings and the profound impact of His messages. Jesus Christ’s life exemplifies love, compassion, and selfless service – values that transcend time and inspire us to be better individuals.
“In the spirit of Christmas, we encourage everyone to be steadfast in prayer for a better Kwara and a government that prioritizes shared prosperity for all. Let the teachings of Christ guide us towards a future of hope, where our collective efforts shape a community that values the welfare of every citizen.
“We are mindful of the challenges our state is facing, including recent decisions that may not align with the aspirations of our people. The proposed usage of N17.8bn for the renovation of the Kwara Hotel and other wasteful spending amidst the prevailing hunger and hardship in the land calls for concern. We are also not unaware of the reckless spending of the Abdulrazaq government, where N41.19 billion was spent on trips, refreshments, and other frivolous expenses. However, we believe that by working together and rejecting those who seek to exploit our collective heritage, we can forge a brighter path forward.
“As we celebrate this Christmas, let us remember that our strength lies in unity. Together, we can overcome challenges and build a Kwara that truly serves the interests of its people. We urge the state government in the spirit of Christmas and New Year festivities to ensure there is adequate security for lives and property in and around the state most especially in communities where cases of kidnapping and banditry are rampant.
“The Kwara PDP wishes all Christians and Kwara people in general a Merry Christmas filled with love, joy, and hope.
