Newly sworn-in Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has promised to make a difgerence in the state.
Abdulrazaq made the promise after the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Kawu Durosinlorun administered the oath of office on him at the Government House, Ilorin.
The state’s Head of Service, Mrs Susan Oluwole, represented the immediate past governor Abdulfatah Ahmed.
Abdulrazaq said: “What we have lacked before now are dependable and sustainable development plans, credible policies and policy discipline, accountability and transparency, a good sense of social justice and ability to expand social and political spaces that will promote tolerance, equality and innovation.
“These are areas where our government will make a difference.”
The governor also vowed to look into the way resources belonging to the state had been expended in the past.
“We are confident that we shall, together, make Kwara great again through prudent deployment of resources, involving the people in policymaking, interrogating past decisions only to the extent that they enable us to move forward.
“I invite you all to join hands with us in government to repair and rebuild Kwara. I invite constructive criticism and urge you all to utilise our open door policy to communicate ideas and suggestions to us.
“I will revamp our education to produce the best minds that will in turn make Kwara second to none. Promote industry, agriculture, technology and social services and open up new vistas of opportunities that will promote the common good”, he said.
