Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) controlled federal Government has failed Kwarans as it has no tangible achievements in the state.
Governor Ahmed made this assertion when the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign train made a stopover at Patigi, Kpada and Lade towns in Patigi local government area of the state.
Governor Ahmed noted that the lack of federal government presence in the state in terms of the provision and development of infrastructure has become well pronounced in the last six years of the Dr Goodluck Jonathan presidency.
The Governor therefore advised the people of the state to collect their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs) before the end of this month in order not to vote a new but progressive government of the APC.
During a courtesy call on the Etsu of Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Chatta Umar, Governor Ahmed said if Nigerians do not collect their PVCs they would not be able to effect the desired democratic change in the country.
He urged Nigerians to remain concerned about the future of the country, stressing that only an APC government with General Muhammadu Buhari as president is better placed to restore good governance in the country.
On the achievements of his administration, Governor Ahmed said it has created greater access to qualitative healthcare through the Community Health Insurance Scheme, upgrading of general hospitals and the provision of drugs and equipment in the health institutions.
He added that his administration was promoting entrepreneurial development through access to loan facilities as well as employment of over 10,200 youths through various intervention schemes.
The Governor said the Kpada-Patigi road would have been completed but for the dwindling funds at the disposal of the state government as a result of the shortfall in allocation from the federation account.
The Etsu of Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Chatta Umar urged politicians to ensure that their campaigns were conducted peacefully by shunning all divisive tendencies, just as he prayed for the success of APC candidates at the polls.
