Gov Ahmed on journey of fulfillment


Without the patience and understanding of the people, the development of a state might take some time before taking place because there is a wide gap of understanding between the government and the citizens, not because the government does not want to perform but for the inadequacy of funds from the federal government causing a hindrance in the progress of the government.The government at the state level may aim at doing its best in terms of provision of social amenities for its people but for the financial constrain that stands as stumbling block against the execution of the projects.

It has become a general predicament to all the states of the federation not until recently when sucour came from the federal government, Kwara inclusive as kept inactive for years as a result of financial constraints but Abdulfatah Ahmed as a Governor did not workers’ salary up to last month.

It was on the records that the state Internal Revenue Generated (IGR) has improved through a well-articulated agency (KW-IRS)which is charged with the responsibility of collection tax in the state.Since the establishment the KW-IRS under the able leadership of Dr. Muritala Awodun, the agency has been doing excellently well by making tax collection easy for the collectors and payees.
It was initially believed in some quarters that the introduction of revenue collectors will prove to be an additional burden to taxpayers.It is now clearly shown that the state government no longer depends solely on the federal allocation before embarking on any project but generates funds internally to carry out meaningful projects in the state.

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed continues to be celebrated since two weeks ago when he paid unscheduled visit to some ongoing projects embarked upon by his administration in the state and flagged off new ones.Surely, the governor has been on a journey to fulfill his campaign promises by embarking on projects that have direct bearing on the lives of the people.

Governor Ahmed's evidence was clearly revealed when he visited some ongoing projects, fact remains that the government is still struggling to walk on the track of economic recovery and fight those stumbling blocks working against the government’s plan to infrastructural achievements.It was observed that the state has for years been denied of infrastructures for lack of funds but recently, hope rises for many projects in Kwara.

Democracy is being practiced in virtually all African countries, but that has not fully justified the opinion of some scholars that democracy is the necessary tool for development but here in Kwara 'it is good here'.
To this end, it requires all in the state to identify with the governor's role as indigenes of the state, who want the best for their state at all times.

Only when this is attained, can we begin to expect more dividends of democracy to translate into the development of Kwara state.
Kwarans can now testify to the fresh air of developmental commitment of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed to his promise in ensuring that Kwarans enjoy the dividends of democracy with numerous other projects to be flagged off and commissioned before the end of this year.
It is now clear to everyone in the state that the Abdulfatah administration is not deceiving the people on its programmes, as day passes, there would be projects to be flagged off or visit the ongoing ones.

His Excellency has consistently told his subjects with genuine sincerity of purpose that if the state’s Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) improved, each council will get lives touching projects.

Recently, the governor has flagged off the expansion of the Kunlende-UITH road; the road which when completed would ease the traffic around Sango-Kwarapoly corridor and grant much easier access to urgent medical attention at the Teaching Hospital.
