The Governor said “By the grace of God, this money will go into social investment programme of the state. It is going into lifting thousands of people out of poverty.
“We are not going to award contracts with this money. It is going to help the poor people.”
The Governor commended the EFCC for its relentless effort in the fight against curbing corruption, urging the people to support the anti-graft agency.
AbdulRazaq said “We thank the EFCC for what they are doing. We are happy that in our state you keep us on our toes.
“Unlike what many people may perceive, EFCC are partners in progress all over the federation. So, we should join hands with them and assist them.”
The Governor stressed that the state was replicating many of federal government programs in the state, adding that, the Social Investment Programme Bill was also at the State Assembly.
AbdulRazaq said “We are replicating many of Federal Government programmes in Kwara, especially the social investment programme, which people know as Trader moni, market moni, N-power and school feeding programme.
“The Social Investment Programme Bill has already passed second reading and this money will go into the programme. We are not going to waste or mismanage it.”
