By Adebayo Olodan

The Kwara State Indigenous Contractors and Suppliers (KICS) on Tuesday restated their support for Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.
Speaking during the meeting of the association at Adewole, Ilorin, the President of KICS, Alh. Moshood Aigoro expressed appreciated the governor for showing willingness to patronise indigenous contractors and therefore prayed for the success of the present administration.
“The governor is a man of the people and we trust him nobody can doubt whatever he says because he has gained the confidence of the people,” Aigoro said.
In his remarks, the Kwara South Chairman of the association, Pastor Aranloye Oluwafemi expressed hope that the present administration will lift a sizable number of residents out of poverty.
“The poor people came together as indigenous contractors and embarked on some activities which the governor recognised and being a listening governor, he has been advised that if he wants a turnaround in the state he must patronise us. He took to the advice and that is why he made the promise that he is going to patronise the indigenous contractors.
“We want the whole state to turn around in terms of lifting people out of poverty to the next level and we thank him and we are praying for him,” he said.
On his part, the Kwara Central Chairman of KICS, Engr. Oladimeji Sayi assured the state government that the indigenous contractors will deliver quality jobs if patronised.
“I heard in the news that the Governor categorically said his focus for now is education and health, construction of classrooms and hospitals. So, we expect to enjoy patronage and when we are able to deliver good jobs there will be other projects like road construction.”
Also speaking, the Vice Chairman,  Hajia Bola Geri-Alimi urged Governor Abdulrazaq to emulate  late Mohammed Lawal who during his tenure as the Chief Executive Officer of the state patronised local contractors.
According to her, during the tenure of Lawal, if you go to any ministry they will give you contract without considering your status or looking down on you as a woman.
