1. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq came into office on May 29, 2019, precisely less than 21 months ago.

As at today, February 10, 2021, for every 1 month he has spent in office since 2019, he has constructed, at least 5 new roads, totally over 110 new roads.

This means that, for every 6 days Abdulrahman has spent in office, he has constructed at least, 1 new road.

With this statistics, we can actually project that by the end of his first term in office, he would have constructed at least, 300 new roads, 1 road in every 6 days.

The roads being built were built without any loan and without owing any contractor.

They were built from the meager allocation of Kwara State and its mild Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

It is also important to note that, from this small income, the state government also paid the counterpart funds for RAAMP, in which almost 200 rural access roads will be built over the next 2 years.

This means that, by the end of Abdulrahman's 4 years in office, his government would have successfully built over 500 new roads in the state.

500 new roads in 4 years, would be 125 roads per year, more than 10 roads per month and more than 1 road every 3 days spent in office.

2. In 21 months in office as governor of Kwara State, Abdulrahman has constructed or renovated at least, 37 schools.

That is almost 2 schools per month or 1 school, every 15 days he has spent in office.

From the meager allocation of the state and its mild Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), the Kwara State government have equally paid off Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) debt and other counterpart funds to access over N7Billion for education infrastructure.

The N7Billion received from this efforts, according to the government, would be used to build 600 new schools in the next 2 years.

With the 600 new schools the government is planing to build with UBEC funding in the next 2 years, that would be a total of 637 schools constructed in 4 years by the Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq's administration.

Literarily, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq's government would have built almost 160 schools per year.

Almost 13 schools every 1 month and 1 school in less than every 3 days in office.

3. Between 2019 till date, more than 50 primary and secondary medical facilities have been constructed, renovated and equiped.

This is about less than 3 facilities per month and 1 in every 10 days.

There are several ongoing projects in the health sector that we cannot even talk about.

All of these projects were done without any loan or debt and doing them has not hinders government from meeting its other obligations, such as prompt payment of salary, payment of pension, provision of water infrastructure and so on.

If the government doing all of the above then came forward, to say that, i need bond to carry out enterprising projects across the state to be able to provide jobs for the teeming population and generate more income for the government, any objective person would agree that the government has really demonstrated capacity to win over members of the Kwara State House of Assembly and the general public.

So, when anybody say to me, why are you defending and supporting the government of Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq?

I would respond, why are you not?
