Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed, has urged Nigerians to support the survival and growth of the nation’s fragile democracy in order to become vibrant, strong and prosperous.

In his Democracy day message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Abdulwahab Oba, Governor Ahmed said “all advanced democracies of the world had passed through turbulent times but survived through dialogue and citizens’ commitment to democratic norms”.

As Nigeria approaches another election year, Governor Ahmed called on politicians to abhor hate speeches and incitement of the people against constituted authorities.

The governor who admitted that the state was challenged because of the fall in federally allocated revenue, explained that the ingenuity of his government in reforming the revenue generation platforms had launched the state among few viable states in the country with self sustaining capacity.

Governor Ahmed said his government had invested heavily in human capital development with the setting up of International Vocational, Technical and Entrepreneurial College, Ajase-Ipo, injection of over N2bn to Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) and other incentives to support the informal sector.

Dr Ahmed assured Kwarans that all the ongoing developmental projects would be taken to completion levels in a bid to bridge infrastructural deficit and guarantee sustainable economic growth in the state.

The Governor also promised even development of the state, saying that no section of the state would be left out in the provision of amenities
