Two Commissioner-nominees get portfolios in Kwara



Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State has sworn in two commissioner-nominees: Florence Olasumbo Oyeyemi and Harriet Adenike Oshatimehin.
Oyeyemi was named Commissioner for Finance; while Adenike will head the Ministry of Youth Development. 
AbdulRazaq charged the new commissioners to be team players and to key into the administration’s commitment to rebuild the state for greatness.
“As you are aware, Kwara state is undergoing a rebuilding process. Prudence, discipline, team work, and sacrifice have been our watchwords,” he said.
“Revenue is drying up. Yet our administration is confronted with huge challenges of human capital and infrastructural development, and an urgent need to lift as many people as possible out of poverty. Every penny is being channeled to tackle this. The administration has a duty to chart a sustainable course for our state. That is why we can’t afford to be flamboyant or wasteful.”
Oyeyemi, who spoke on behalf of the new commissioners, said they would not take the opportunity to serve the state for granted.

“It is a privilege and honour. It is a huge privilege we do not take for granted. We will work together as a team with other members of the cabinet and contribute our quota maximally to the development of Kwara State,” Oyeyemi said. 
The brief swearing-in was attended by Chief Judge Suleiman Kawu; Secretary to the State Government Prof. Mamman Saba Jibril; Head of Service Mrs Modupe Oluwole Susan; and the chairman of Kwara APC caretaker committee Alhaji Abdullahi Samari.
