The Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress in Kwara State, Tajudeen Aro, speaks on the controversy surrounding the rice palliative alleged to have been given to members of the National Assembly, among other issues
How did you perceive Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s performance in the six months of his second term?
 The governor’s performance in his second term has been quite impressive and assuring. Government is a continuum, and he has been doing well. As I speak with you, work has been intensified on the General Tunde Idiagbon Bridge at the Tanke area. There are also projects like the garment factory, road projects in Ilorin and other parts of the state as well as various other projects that were started during his first term. The people of the state did not make any mistake in giving him the mandate for the second term in office. But I want to plead with our people to give more support to the governor so that he can perform better because he has more goodies for the people of the state and what he needs is our support and encouragement so that he can perform better. The removal of the fuel subsidy done by the Federal Government was done in the interest of the people of Nigeria. The federal and state governments designed various palliative measures to cushion the effect that the removal of fuel subsidy. Unfortunately, the expected positive impact such efforts would have on the living conditions of the people is not felt due to our attitude of insincerity, poor planning and execution from top to bottom.When the announcement on the removal of petrol subsidy was made by President Bola Tinubu, our governor, being the chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum was the first to announce various palliative measures for the people of the state to cushion the effect that subsidy removal would have on the people of the state. Such measures included a reduction of the working days from five to three days for the workers in a week and distribution of food items to the people as well as a reduction in the price of maize to poultry farmers.
