More encomiums at the weekend came the way of Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, as the government embarks on massive rehabilitation of schools and other basic amenities across the state.
A delegation of the Old Students Association Patigi Secondary School in Patigi local government, led by the Etsu Patigi Ibrahim Umar Bologi II, commended AbdulRazaq for the comprehensive renovation of the school 50 years after it was established, and other high-impact projects of the administration.
The delegation, which included the Etsu Tsaragi Aliyu Ndakpotwa Abdullahi; former Head of Service Mohammed Dabarako; and former Permanent Secretary Mohammed Koro, called on the governor to keep up the good job.
“Since the establishment of our alma mata (Patigi Secondary School) some 50 years ago, no government has done what you are doing in the area of comprehensive rehabilitation. We are here, following our grand patron (the Etsu Patigi), to commend you for the numerous things you have been doing for our communities,” Ndakpotwa said at the weekend.
Dabarako, who is the chairman of the upcoming 50th anniversary’s central working committee, said the alumni association is pleased with the renovation of the school, which he said is “progressing very well”, adding: “It will be naïve on our part not to come and thank you for your milk of kindness.”
Dabarako, among other requests from Edu/Patigi axis of the state, urged the government to help prevail on Aso Rock to dredge the River Niger from Baro to Jebba to curb the perennial flooding in Patigi and Edu local governments.
“Secondly, for quite some time now, the issue of Hydroelectric Power Area Development Commission (HYPADEC) has been going on. We request for your timely intervention on this matter and your magnanimity in the area of appointment of executive director to the office of HYPADEC from Edu/Patigi region that is mostly affected by the flood,” he said
