Alhaji Abdulkadir Adamu Attahiru Manko, chairman of White Waters and CEO of HAM Foundation, praised Kwara State Governor Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for his commitment to infrastructure expansion across the state.

The discussion, which centered on the development of Kwara North, stressed the governor’s strategic focus on statewide growth.

Manko, a prominent business figure in the oil and gas sector, commended Governor AbdulRazaq for his development-focused leadership, emphasizing the governor’s efforts to expand infrastructure across Kwara State’s three senatorial districts.

He lauded the governor’s initiative in facilitating the construction of around 295 kilometers of roads, a project valued at approximately 350 billion naira, undertaken by the BUA Group through a tax credit scheme.

Manko noted that work had already commenced in the Bode Saadu axis, describing the project as both massive and unprecedented, with significant economic and social impacts.

During the meeting, Manko reiterated his support for the development framework aimed at the North and by extension other senatorial districts despite his political inclinations as a chieftain of Social Democratic party (SDP) and senatorial candidate in the last elections.

While echoing the position of his Royal Highnesses and other major stakeholders from the North in favour of the 2027 transition project aligned with their plea as a collective position, recognizing the importance of equity and fairness.

He emphasized the importance of equity and fairness in these initiatives and stressed his alignment with the governor’s developmental agenda, despite his political background as a former Kwara North senatorial candidate for the Social Democratic Party (SDP).

Manko brought out his commitment to public impact through his HAM Foundation and urged his followers and the people of Kwara to remain committed to the collective responsibility of achieving a greater Kwara.

He reassured Governor AbdulRazaq of his continued support and pledged to enhance his philanthropic efforts, recognizing that government efforts alone are insufficient for comprehensive development.
