No amount of lie, false performance claims can cover your failures – Kwara PDP to Abdulrazaq  


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kwara State says no amount of lies and false performance claims by the administration of Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq will be enough to cover its obvious failures and redeem its fast depleting image.

The party said this in reaction to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, signifying that ‘Kwara has topped the table of developmental strides recorded across states governed by All Progressives Congress (APC) for the month of March, 2021.”

In the statement, Ajakaye noted that Kwara led the national table with 19 strides across various sectors, including social investment, health, sports, agriculture, and education, among others, to emerge the state with the most developmental initiatives for the month.

But in a statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Tunde Ashaolu, the Kwara PDP said the performance claims are false and laughable, and that there is nothing on ground in Kwara State to justify such ‘ridiculous assertions’.

It added that “no amount of lies and fake performance claims will be enough to cover the obvious failures and atrocities of Governor Abdulrahman and redeem his fast depleting dwindling image and goodwill among Kwarans.

“We challenge the Abdulrazaq-led administration to highlight the purported 19 developmental strides it recorded across various sectors in the month of March. The government should however note that Kwarans are aware of its disappointing performance and will not be swayed by propaganda and deceits that have characterised the present administration.”

The Kwara PDP further noted that Kwarans are disappointed and embarrassed about how Governor Abdulrazaq has been governing the State, saying that the level of ineptitude of his administration is unprecedented.

It added that “Governor Abdulrazaq has shown to be a an ineffectual leader who also, unfortunately, surrounds himself with incompetent and inexperienced people that have failed to add any value to his administration.

“Sadly, this reflecting in the manner at which the State is being governed, with frustration and discontent spreading among the populace, including those who labored and contributed in bringing the governor to power. They have all lost hope in his administration and cannot wait for 2023 to come, to send him packing.”

The party also decried the growing level of insecurity pervading the State, noting that kidnappers, armed robbers and ritual killers now operate freely in different parts of the State, putting Kwara on the edge.

“Unfortunately, the spiraling insecurity in the State is affecting businesses and livelihoods of people living in the State. Farmers are afraid to go to their farms for fear of being kidnapped. More worrisome is the apparent lack of commitment on the part of the State Governor to deal with the situation.”
