As we mark the fifth anniversary of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s exemplary leadership, coinciding with the first year of his second term in office, it is an opportune moment to reflect on the profound transformation Kwara State has undergone under his stewardship. Governor AbdulRazaq has emerged as the architect of a modern Kwara, steering the state towards unprecedented growth and development, and setting a clear departure from the stagnant governance of the past.

Governor AbdulRazaq’s administration has been characterized by a bold vision and a relentless pursuit of excellence. The state is evolving from a civil service-dominated economy into a vibrant hub for technology-enabled education, tourism, and industrial innovation. His commitment to infrastructure development is evident in the numerous projects across the state, including the country’s largest garment factory, a sugar factory, a film studio, an innovation hub, and the international conference center. These initiatives not only provide employment opportunities but also position Kwara as a significant economic powerhouse in the North Central region.

One of the cornerstones of Governor AbdulRazaq’s administration has been the revitalization of the education and healthcare sectors. The introduction of KwaraLEARN has significantly improved literacy and numeracy levels, leading to a 30% rise in basic public school enrollments and a notable reduction in learning deprivation. In healthcare, the state has achieved remarkable milestones, including the construction of new dental and eye care centers, modern intensive care units, and newly equipped hospital wards. The accreditation of a university teaching hospital is a testament to his unwavering commitment to human capital development and healthcare excellence.

Governor AbdulRazaq’s focus on infrastructure has resulted in substantial improvements in road networks, water supply, and urban planning. The construction of interlocked roads, new flyovers, and the comprehensive upgrade of existing road networks have transformed Ilorin into a modern city with scenic roads and reduced travel time. The launch of the Jebba waterworks and the ongoing restoration of the Ilorin City Master Plan, including the Ilorin Smart City Project, underscore his vision for sustainable urban development.

Kwara’s leading position as a beacon of gender inclusion is supported by the Kwara State Gender Composition Law, ensuring at least 35% representation of either gender in public appointments. This progressive stance has been lauded by the United Nations (UN) Women and sets a benchmark for other states in Nigeria. Additionally, Governor AbdulRazaq’s administration has made significant strides in youth empowerment through sports development and various agribusiness programs, providing strategic platforms for young people to engage in productive activities and steer clear of anti-social behaviour.

Governor AbdulRazaq’s administration is marked by peace, stability, and a focus on legitimate economic opportunities for the youth. The support extended to state and federal institutions to achieve their mandates reflects his dedication to good governance and the well-being of all Kwarans.

Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s leadership over the past five years has redefined what governance means for the people of Kwara. His transformative policies, infrastructural developments, and unwavering commitment to education, healthcare, and youth empowerment have laid a solid foundation for a prosperous future. As we celebrate this milestone, it is clear that under his guidance, Kwara State is poised for continued growth and development, making it a model for other states to emulate.

Governor AbdulRazaq’s legacy as a visionary leader dedicated to the progress and well-being of his people is firmly established. We look forward to the continued realization of his ambitious agenda, which promises a greater tomorrow for Kwara State.
