Catholic Diocese of Ilorin, Kwara state, has urged the state Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq not to fail in fulfilling his electoral promises to the people.
The church also admonished the new administration to translate its “Otoge” (enough is enough) mantra to reality in the lives of Kwarans.
Co-adjutor of the Ilorin Catholic Diocese, Most Rev. Paul A. Olawoore told reporters this in Ilorin at this year World Communication Day.
The clergyman said: “The new administration should address
frontally all those things Kwarans are lacking which they had promised to provide. They should be true to their electoral promises. Thank God
we have a means of comparison now, those who were there before, what people expected them to do and they did not do led to the slogan of Otoge
(enough is enough). Now that a new government has come in we want to see the difference not just hear it, because if they say that there is no good road for people to pass we want to see that good road during their own tenure.
“We don’t want excuses. They should not heap blames on the former government for non performance. We want them in action providing those things that people are complaining of.
And that even starts from the security of life. People are being
killed on daily basis.
“The governor being the chief security officer of the state should map out strategies of how he will secure his people. Even if the Federal Government fails to act, he should ensure security of lives and property in the state. He should make Kwara state no go area for kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers clashes and other violent attacks. It is
then we will know that indeed, it is Otoge.”
