Heavy Down Pour Storm Ilorin, Destroyed several Houses - community cries out, call for government assistance. Yesterday, it was a rainy experience for people within Ilorin metropolis as rain stormed the city and selectively destroyed several properties. The rainy experience was not favorable. The SATCOMMEDIA learnt that the rainstorm that occurred on Saturday night also displaced many people at Oke Ogun community, in Edun, Idiagbon community, in Emirs road, Isale-Gambari among other affected areas. Though no lives were lost in the incident. An eyewitness from the community affirmed the incident and call on government for assistance, as many people left were devastated with little or without hope of assistance from any quarters.

COVID-19: Kwara PDP faults Gov. Abdulrazaq over sacking of driver for poor rescue operation

COVID-19: Kwara PDP faults Gov. Abdulrazaq over sacking of driver for poor rescue operation

•••demands appopriate reprimand  of Commissioner

15th May, 2020

The Kwara State Chapter of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, has faulted Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for the sacking of a
government driver that attended to a person evacuated with a COVID-19 ambulance in Ilorin,  a video of which has gone viral online. 

A statement by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Tunde Ashaolu, said the governor erred in ordering the sacking of the innocent driver, who was only acting on instructions of his superior. 

"Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq erred in directing the sacking of the innocent and ignorant driver, who obviously acted on the instructions of his superior(s). There is, therefore, no genuine justification for terminating his job. 

"The Kwara PDP notes that the driver was simply used by the State Government as a sacrificial lamb to deflect criticism about its ineptitude, failure and irresponsibility. We therefore demand that the Governor takes responsibility for the avoidable embarrassing incident that has turned Kwara into a laughingstock. 

"While we welcome the suspension of the Permanent Secretary of the State's Ministry of Health, we believe this isn't enough. The Commissioner who oversees the ministry that failed to provide the needed orientation, training and protective equipment to its staff, should also be held to account. 

"It is worrisome that a government that claimed to have invested over N8billion on the health sector failed to provide the required training and protective tools to its staff, which makes them vulnerable to danger."
