Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq said the administration has achieved a lot in the area of fixing basic infrastructure and bringing governance closer to the people.
He, however, said that the government still has a lot of grounds to cover.
The governor stated this at the inauguration of three new commissioners on Wednesday in Ilorin.
“We have delivered quite much, particularly in basic amenities and social infrastructure that were hitherto lacking. But we still have huge grounds to cover.
“So, it is no time for full-blown politics. We must keep our eyes on the ball, which is service to the people of Kwara State who have entrusted us with their mandate,” he said.
The commissioners are Hajia Saadatu Modibbo Kawu (Education and Human Capital Development); Mrs. Bosede Olaitan (Communications); and Sabbah Yisa Gideon (Agriculture and Rural Development).
The governor tasked the cabinet members on prudence, teamwork, and sacrifice to achieve a greater Kwara State.
“You are coming on board at a crucial time in the life of this administration and our state. Kwara state is undergoing a rebuilding process. Prudence, discipline, team work, and sacrifice have been our watchwords,” he said.
Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Mamman Saba Jubril, for his part urged the new cabinet members to be dedicated to their duties.
He called for tolerance and loyalty to the government.
Modibbo Kawu, who spoke on behalf of the new commissioners said they would join other stakeholders to succeed in the task before them.
