The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Kwara State, Alhaji Shuaib Yaman Abdullahi on Sunday met with the Association of Kwara Online Media Practitioners (ASKOMP) ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Yaman during the interactive session held at Emirate Hotel, Ilorin shared his vision for Kwara State ahead of PDP governorship campaign flag-off on Wednesday.
According to him, We have the vision to make Kwara State one of the best revenue generating State apart from Lagos and a few others.
In his words: ” It is embarrassing how Kwara Government is borrowing and servicing debt. This is not sustainable at a time when government is not generating corresponding revenue. Production of cotton alone in Kwara can generate what we need to revitalise the State”.
The PDP Governorship Candidate also promised to spread development to every part of the state.
“Every part of Kwara (South, North and Central) will receive adequate attention of our Government. As it stands today, we already have discussions with major players in the manufacturing and food and technology industries.” He explained
“All of them are ready to bring down their industries to Kwara. DANO, Peak Milk and a host of others too.
We are looking at investing seriously on young people by exposing them to the right way of doing things.”
Speaking on his manifesto, the Edu local government born politician said he will run a campaign of truthfulness and present to Kwarans realisable manifesto, adding that
“We are not going to promise what we cannot do.”
Yaman also clarified his relationship with Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq says he lacks competency to make good ideas practicable. “On relationships with the present gov;
I have had several opportunities to discuss with Gov Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq but I am not sure he listened. Perhaps, only pretended he was listening to those beautiful ideas. I believe this is why we are where we are today. When you don’t have the competency to make good ideas practicable, you are bound to fail.”
While acknowledging the contribution of ASKOMP in disseminating information to Kwarans, Yaman sought effective collaboration with the association for a successful campaign.
Earlier, the Chairman Association of Kwara Online Media Practitioners (ASKOMP), Salihu Shola Taofeek said the umbrella body for professional Online journalists is engaging Candidates in 2023 general elections to understand their manifestos and communicate to the citizens effectively.
