Kwara State Palliative Committee Inaugurated by State Governor

Kwara State governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRasaq is set to flag off distribution of rice palliatives today.

The governor said the palliative was only one of the many steps the government had taken to relieve people of the inconveniences arising from fuel subsidy removal and to strengthen the economy.

“It is important to clarify that food palliatives are only a stop gap measure to show empathy and reach out to the people, especially the most vulnerable ones among us. It is not the only step the government has taken since the removal of fuel subsidy. Government is committing huge resources to hasten mass production and use of gas and electricity-powered vehicles nationwide as well boost agricultural productivity, manufacturing, and small and medium scale enterprises. We are in this together, and I plead that we work together as one people bounded by one destiny to get over this current challenge,” AbdulRazaq said.
