They’ll party hard! Kwara State sets up independence anniversary committee

by Stanley Azuakola

The Federal government announced in early September, that just like last year, this year’s Independence anniversary event would be a low key one. Apparently, the Kwara Government did not get that memo.

The state government has gone ahead to inaugurate a 22-member committee to oversee the celebration of Nigeria’s 52nd independence anniversary.

The announcement was made by the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Mr. Anthony Towoju, when he inaugurated the committee in Ilorin on Monday.

The committee was charged with designing an acceptable programme and organising a hitch-free ceremony.

On her part, the Chairman of the committee, Hajia Aishat Mohammed, assured that the event her committee would put together would be a colourful one.

The committee has Alhaji Aliyu Ahmed, an Assistant Director in the ministry as the Secretary.

  1. Dr Bukola Saraki and Mr Babatunde Fashola got a lot of good mention due to infrastructure development during their term as Governor. Mr Fashola is still receiving the same good mention for continuing with the same development.

    Would have been nice if the present Kwara state Governor complements the effort of his predecessor by concentrating on the smaller street roads within Ilorin and other places, extending pipe borne water to this smaller streets too.

    We are all watching to see what happens, 2015 is getting close, let us see if they do the rush jobs toward the end of their term just for votes.

    The nation's new Governors priority seems getting re-elected to continue with projects they never started in the first place. Stealing funds for the election. Lootocracy, or, do they still call it democracy?
