Towoju cautions youths against thuggery


The Kwara State Commissioner for Communications, Hon. Olabode George Towoju, has called on the youths of the state to shun thuggery and other social vices, in order to maintain the peace and harmony the state is known for.

Towoju made this call today while playing host to the representatives of the Kwara State Chapter of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in the Ministry's conference room.

He assured them of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq's commitment to ensuring that Kwarans get quality education and asserted that this made the governor to pay off the Universal Basic Education (UBEC) counterpart funds the state had defaulted since 2013. 

Towoju said that under the administration of Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq qualified and competent teachers were recruited last year to teach the Kwara child in school, adding that the recruitment process was strictly based on merit. 

The Commissioner emphasized that the youths matter to the governor, hence, the reason 70 per cent of cabinet members are youths because he believes that  the future belongs to the youths.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Association, Comrade Salman Yusuf, appreciated the governor of Kwara State, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for his interest in developing the education sector in the State. 

Yusuf commended the state government's commitment to the completion of the   Osi and Ilesha Baruba campuses of the Kwara State University. 

The Chairman sought for partnership with the Ministry and added that they would like to work with the Ministry in achieving some of their aims and also render assistance in any way they can.
 
The highlight of the meeting was the presentation of a magazine highlighting the achievements of the governor titled, " The Uncommon Liberator."
