Journalists will be Elevated to their rightful Position -Towoju


The Kwara State Commissioner of Communications, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, has sought for cooperation with journalists in the state in order to move the state forward. 

Calling on the journalists to always stand for the truth, he added that many cankerworms will soon be made open and the "evil doers" will not go unpunished.

 Towoju said that the past administrations mishandled many government properties, adding that it is one of the issues the government of Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq is trying to solve. 
The Commissioner made the submission at the Media Parley held at the Correspondents Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) at his maiden appearance at the Chapel. 

He added that "it is unfortunate that things have gone bad but we must not rest. As a member of the White Paper Committee on Illegal Acquisition of Properties in Kwara State from 2019 till date, I have the privilege to know many hideous things the past administration did. We are all aware of the things that have gone wrong in the State.

"I am here today to seek for your cooperation in moving the state forward. The Press is the pivot of the truth. I know a lot of you are tired. You want things to be better in Kwara State. I am here to remind you of the past, so we can know how to mend things and move on. It is unfortunate things have gone bad. It is high time we moved to the next level," the commissioner added.  
"This government struggled to pay the counterpart funds, left unpaid by rhe previous administration, to make sure that our children get access to quality education. 

"Our properties were sold to private individuals with no paper trail to back it up. They mismanaged everything and did not pay a dime to the government's purse. They have accrued so many debts we have to pay off. That is why the governor cannot buy cars for the cabinet members," Towoju stated.  
Talking about Shonga Farms, the commissioner lamented how the past administration brought in expatriates to "do what the citizens could have done successfully, and despite doing shoddy jobs, they still borrowed money from the state purse."


On the Commissioner's entourage were the Director of Information Services (DoI), Alhaji Ayobami Akanbi and the Director of Public Orientation of the Ministry, Alhaji Abdulfatai Adeniyi Kazeem.
