Chairman of the White Paper Panel on the unlawful sales of government’s properties from May 29, 1999 to May 29, 2019 Barrister Hussein Buhari, said during the submission of the report that findings in the report were mind boggling and said nothing short of diligent prosecution, possible jail terms and recovery of many of the properties can avenge the “official connivances” that led to the pilferage of the assets.

On his Twitter handle, @abdulfatahAhmed, on Tuesday, the former governor said “In response to an invitation by the commission via a letter dated 26th April 2021, I voluntarily visited the EFCC in Abuja yesterday with regard to a complaint about a contract awarded by Kwara State government while I was the state’s Commissioner for Finance.

Sources stated that the former governor has been under interrogation for the past seven hours at the EFCC headquarters in Jabi, Abuja, over alleged diversion of N9 billion by his administration.

In his condolence following Khalifa Kamaldeen’s passage on Friday, Alhaji Ahmed urged the Kamaldeen family and the Adabiyya Islamic movement to take solace in the fact that the departed scion was an exemplary man who upheld the legacy of his late father, Sheikh Mohammed Kamaldeen, in Islamic and Quranic education.

For some time now, I have consciously resisted the temptation to join opaque debates seeking to pin the misfortune of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last election on former Kwara State Governor Dr. Abdulfatah Ahmed’s alleged non-performance.

Former Commissioner for Health in Kwara State, Suleiman Alege, has recanted his earlier claim that the Abdulfatah Ahmed administration left three ventilators in the state, a few hours after the state government challenged him to provide proof or be dragged to the anti-graft agency to produce the facility.

AbdulRazaq said at a maiden breakfast meeting with journalists in Kwara State that the focus of his administration centres around human capital and infrastructural development, which would attract investments, combat poverty and take Kwara to the top of the table of revenue generation and competitiveness.
