Governor-elect of Kwara, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has promised to interface with the police to ensure that those implicated in Offa robbery were promptly prosecuted.
He said that he would ensure that the judicial process was logically concluded and perpetrators brought to book.
Abdulrazaq made the pledge at a media briefing on Sunday night in Ilorin where he delivered his acceptance speech amidst All Progressive Congress (APC) party supporters.
He noted that the state had become so insecure to the extent that banking operations had been suspended in the entire Kwara South senatorial zone, after the Offa robbery saga,
“This development is seriously affecting the economic development in the zone. We will interface with the Police to address the challenge of insecurity
“The Offa robbery where 33 people were killed, based on police investigation was linked to top government officials,’’ he said.
He also pledged that his administration will be accountable to the people and will not steal or loot the state’s treasury.
He said his government would be people-oriented because it was the first time since 1999 that Kwara peoples’ votes counted and their will come to pass.
Abdulrazaq said that in line with the party manifesto, his administration would place priority attention to security, agriculture, education and infrastructure development.
Abdulrazaq said that Kwara being an agrarian state, his administration would pay attention to farming and agro processing. (NAN)
