The leading Pro-democracy group, Kwara Must Change has described the action taken by the Kwara State House of Assembly and the Kwara State governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to repeal the pension law for former Governors and their deputies as a step in the right direction, noting that the group has no doubt whatsoever that the Kwara State governor would fulfill all campaign promises made to the people of Kwara.

This observation was made by the convener of Kwara Must Change, AbdulRazaq Hamzat, while reacting to the news of repeal of the ex-governors pension law.

Hamzat described the law which reposed a reasonable chunk of the the state's scarce resources in the payment of pensions to former governors and their deputies as a retrogressive law that is not only unsustainable, but also unnecessary.

In his words "for a state like Kwara State which is choking under the yoke of the past mis-governance to operate a law, as exploitative as the repealed law shows the extent of the dreaded past" And with the repeal of the pension law, the state can now channel those resources that has been hitherto allocated to the payment of the pension to former Governors and their deputies to provision of the much needed infrastructure across rural communities.

Hamzat also used the opportunity to commend  members of the Kwara State House of Assembly for a job Well-done.
