“I was inaugurated as the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development by His Excellency, @RealAARahman on Friday.“I return all glory and adoration to Almighty God, I pray for His guidance in actualising the Kwara of our dream.“I also want to express my gratitude to our indefatigable governor for the confidence he reposed in me to serve as one of his cabinet members.“I promise to discharge my duty diligently and not to let our youth folks down.”
During the swearing-in of Kolo and other commissioners, Abdulrazaq urged them to engage, listen, and relate well with people whose mandate has put the administration in place.
