    Kwara State Government has promised to up its efforts towards reducing rural-urban migration in the state by redistributing wealth and basic infrastructure, as well as giving priority to the well-being of the people in the rural communities.

    Addressing the people of Onila/Omido communities in Irepodun local government of the State during a Village Square meeting, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq said the meeting was part of strategy by his administration to hear directly from the people in order to ensure even distribution of developmental programmes to all parts of the state.

    It would be recalled that Onila community recently shot into limelight following their widely reported lack of school building and other basic amenities, following which AbdulRazaq’s administration built a school and provided water facilities for them, while some nearby communities had also been linked to the national electricity grid.

    The Governor, at the meeting, pledged to look into the new requests of the people of the two communities, especially more teachers and roads, adding that government is also willing to support them with farm inputs, and to equip their healthcare facility.

    Responding on behalf of the two communities, the traditional ruler of Omido, Oba John Adegboyega, said this was the first time of hosting an incumbent governor in Onila/Omido, let alone them enjoying any infrastructural project.

    “If anyone had narrated a dream of seeing a governor ever visiting our village, I would ask the dreamer to return to sleep. We never believed Onila could enjoy this government’s attention so much or be brought to good limelight with the presence of developmental projects. We are really grateful,” he said.

    The monarch thanked the present administration for impacting their lives, and for showing them that everyone in the state matters to the administration.

    AbdulRazaq, on his way going, also visited the Palace of the Arigbamu of Agbamu, HRH Oba Samuel Olushola, where he reiterated his government’s plan to fix their link road.

    Arigbamu of Agbamu, Oba Samuel Olushola, who said AbdulRazaq is a God-sent leader, commended him for prioritising the welfare of his people in Agbamu, and for enlisting their road for construction.

    “We are grateful to Your Excellency for every good things your government has brought to us. For this, we will vote for you. I will even make myself available to mobilise support among the chiefs in Agbamu and its environs for your re-election,” he said.

    “You are such a wonderful Governor. Sometimes, I wonder what other political parties will campaign with if at all they come here.”
