During this year’s Gaani traditional festival, the Okuta Village in Baruten Local Government Area of Kwara State presented Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq with an award of recognition on Excellence performance on governance in the state.
Governor AbdulRazaq received the award from HRH, Alhaji Abubakar Idris Serobetete, Emir of Okuta, during the 19th Gaani festival on Saturday.
The Emir thanked Governor AbdulRazaq for his attention and prompt response to the decay and deficit infrastructure that had bedeviled the area.
In his speech delivered by the former caretaker Chairman of the Kwara APC, Alhaji Abdullahi Samari, the royal father described AbdulRazaq as a man who was determined to impact not only Baruten LGA but the entire state.
“Our children can now learn under standard structures. We shall continue to be grateful to you for solving our annual dry season problems, by providing us motorised boreholes.”
“We in Baruten local government area and especially Okuta community has never had it this good, including positions being occupied by our sons and daughters.
“I therefore assure you of my community’s unalloyed support, loyalty and commitment to your administration. You have actually opened our eyes in Kwara State,” the Emir stated.
