Fagbemi, on his part, said Kwara people have all seen the huge gap between the past and present administrations in terms of inclusive growth and good governance and have vowed never to allow the state to go backward.

He said the comeback bid of the PDP was evil and targeted at denying the citizens what they were already enjoying under AbdulRazaq, restating the government’s scorecards across sectors.
