Abdulrazaq threatens legal action to recover Kwara assets

Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq

Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, has threatened to use legal means to recover state assets illegally sold by the past administration.

Abdulrazaq said this on Friday while receiving the final report of the 21-member committee on the review of the sales/disposal of government properties by the immediate past administration.


A statement by the governor’s chief press secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, quoted Abdulrazaq saying: “We would not discard the report because that would be a waste of your time and resources. We will definitely look at it. And we will find judicial solutions for the good of the state and Nigeria.”

He said the committee might be called to make clarifications as the report is being reviewed.

Chairman of the committee, Senator Suleiman Ajadi, said the committee discovered about N5 billion allegedly mismanaged through funds meant for supporting SMEs.


“The committee observed unconscionable and immoral use of public funds to buy luxury cars, which flies in the face of the poverty being faced by our people, especially because of the several months of unpaid salaries,” Ajadi said.

“It was considered reckless and against all common decency for those in authority to award these properties kept in their care to themselves in whatever guise.”
