Although, Alhaji Ahmed in his reaction said his administration followed due process in selling some government quarters to civil servants, and members of the 7th Kwara State House of Assembly on owner-occupier basis following state Executive Council approval.

The said approval, he said, also covered other properties disposed of by his administration with the proceed paid into government coffers.

Speaking further, Governor Abdulrazaq said: “It’s so painful, we have to develop alternative means of generating revenue and that is why we have to be enterprising in the way we do our things “I came to see the President to wish him good tiding for the new year and also with a shopping list because our state is in dire streaks.
“When we got in, there was a total collapse in the state starting from education. Our four colleges of education were on strike for a year. The government was owing teachers about N750 million. Thank God we have been able to clear that. UBEC had blacklisted Kwara State since it shows you that there had not been any investment in the education sector.”
