– Recession has made Governance Tough”- Gov Ahmed
– He was hosted by the Asepo Omo Igbomina
The Kwara State governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed says the current economic recession in the country has made governance in the state tough but expressed optimism that the worst times are over.
The governor stated this when he played host to the executive of Asepo Omo Igbomina led by Alhaji Adewara Toyin Lawal in his office in Ilorin on Monday.
He urged Nigerians to put a stop to the blame game going on in the country and begin to consider the most critical success factors needed to take the country to where we all desire.
Governor Ahmed lamented that the country in the last two years has been going through thick and thin, noting that it has never been like this in Nigeria.
He noted that the government has been able to sail through the tides because it carries a strong sense of commitment to the people as promised during the electioneering campaigns.
Alhaji Ahmed said that the economic challenges have been the reason why government is running short in some areas. He, however, said the platform for growth and development has been created.
The governor assured that the people will see more of government support in terms of deployment of infrastructure, human capital development and driving the local economy.
The Chairman of the Association, Alhaji Adewara Lawal, earlier in his address lauded Governor Ahmed for taking the state to greater height of economic prosperity in the face of the present economic challenges confronting the nation.
The association also commended the governor for being consistent in championing peace and harmony among the people of different tribes and religions in the State.
