Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Thursday paid a condolence visit to the family of the former Deputy Governor of the state late Elder Peter Ƙisira, who died on 30th March, 2024.

He was received by Mrs Felicia Kisira and other members of the family at their Ilorin GRA residence. 

Governor AbdulRazaq was in Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj when the incident happened, although he had earlier sent his condolences through a press statement.

“I am here to sympathise with you over the loss of His Excellency former deputy Governor, Peter Kisira. He had served the state well and left a good legacy. We pray for the repose of his soul. We equally pray that God gives you and the children the fortitude to bear the loss,” the Governor said before signing the condolence register.

Mrs Felicia thanked the Governor for his support when the family needed it  most, commending his focus and silent works that she said have continued to turn around the state.

“We appreciate Your Excellency for the visit. We have been hearing about you as a kind father, and we can testify to that. We are grateful because you came to our aid when we needed you,” Mrs Felicia said. 

“Some of us are following your achievements. You have oppositions, but they are there to encourage you to do more. As you are a quiet achiever, continue to do good. When you leave, people will realize it and posterity will not forget you. May the Lord continue to be with you, sir."

The Governor paid a similar visit to the Chief Judge of Kwara State, Justice Biodun Ayodele Adebara over the loss of his father, Pa Adebara Adio Durotoye. 

“On behalf of the government and the people of the state, we have come to sympathise with you over the loss of Baba. All we can pray for is the forgiveness of his sins and God's mercies. May his soul rest in peace,” he told the Adebaras.

Governor AbdulRazaq also visited the Ilorin residence of Senator Rafiu Ibrahim, who died yesterday, to pay his last respect.

“As Muslims, we just pray that May Allah grant him Al-jannah Firdauz. We all belong to God, and we will go back to him at our appointed time. Children should emulate their father. He has set a fine example and left a huge shoe for them to fill,” the Governor said.

Justice Adebara, in his submission, appreciated AbdulRazaq for his caring and loving heart and praised his leadership style both in the state and at the Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF).

“His Excellency is a person with a caring and loving heart. He is a person who loves everyone around him. We sincerely thank you for finding time to come to commiserate with us on the demise of our father,” the Chief Judge said. 

Former Chairman, Kwara State Internal Revenue Service, Prof Muritala Awodun, who spoke on behalf of Senator Rafiu's family, thanked the Governor for identifying with the family at this trying period. 
 
The Governor was received at the Senator's house by some leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state and family members.

The Governor was accompanied on the visits by former Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties, Alhaji Abdulrazhaq Jiddah.
