Kwara Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has been honoured with the Leadership Newspaper Governor of the Year Award for his investments in basic education, health, safety nets for the poor, general basic amenities and prudent management of resources.
The media platform said his moves are clearly repositioning the state.
The newspaper extolled the commitment of the Governor to reposition the state for growth.
“The Governor has, since his inauguration, charted a new course for the state on all fronts. He started by focusing attention on investments in basic education, primary healthcare, rural and urban roads, water and sanitation, gender inclusion, youth engagement, citizen engagement, and efforts designed to open up the government for public scrutiny and accountability,” the Organisers began.
“As a leader, he has run a lean administration and has led his team with his signature simplicity and tolerance for opposing views. For confronting the economic challenges of Kwara State through his determination to turn around the state positively and free the people from the shackles of poverty, thus making it possible for citizens of the state to feel the impact of governance after years of neglect, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq is Leadership Governor of the Year 2020,” the citation reads.
The Governor dedicated the award to God and to the people of the State, thanking the newspaper for the honour.
