The Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, on Saturday went viral on Social media after pictures of him and some other state officials hit the internet with them seen cutting grasses at the Mount Carmel College Oloje, Ilorin Kwara State.
He called on citizens of the states to do their part in community work and contribution. This was part of the preparation exercise ahead of school resumption on Monday, according to NAN reports.
Gov Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq noted that his action was meant to inspire people to take responsibilities for the government’s facilities located in their areas.
The governor arrived the school with a cutlass, accompanied by House of Assembly leader, Magaji Olawoyin, and Chairman, Environmental Task Force, AbdulRazaq Jiddah.
AbdulRazaq later inspected parts of the school affected by a recent rainstorm.
“The message here is to emphasise self-helps and community contributions to public projects. When government locates a project in your community, such a community should take ownership.
“My being here is to send the signal that nobody is too big to be involved in community work; we need to help ourselves. It is really no big deal to make things work”, he said.
