|Politics / Kwara Pdp, Let Me Teach You How To Play Opposition–by Adetola Kehinde by kennydee05(m): 7:29pm On Oct 29, 2019|
Democracy gives room for citizens, civil society groups, NGOs, and opposition parties to challenge the government i.e. the ruling party by putting ruling party to putting government on their toes to deliver on their campaign manifestos, deliver good governance and ensuring that cases of corruption and abuse of power by the government in power are revealed. However, it opposition party, PDP led by Bukola Saraki whose political dynasty were unanimously ended by Kwarans in the last general elections are ingnorance of their duty as opposition party in Kwara State.
Kwara PDP and their contracted media propagandists have been doing opposite of what the role of opposition party entails as they have on several occasions caught in the web of fake news peddling and defamation of characters of the Governor of Kwara state. The most recent act of their irresponsible was demonstrated by the news report published by Nationa Pilot on Thursday 24th, October, 2019. According to the said news report which was linked to a top opposition leader in the state Governor AbdulRahaman allegedly acquires N480m 2 bullet-proof jeeps.
Thankfully, the news report has been denied by the Governor with request that the National Pilot should retract the fake news on all platforms or media; apologise; give an assurance that they will desist from publishing fake news against him or face legal consequences for the libelous report. This was contained in the letter written by Governor AbdulRahman to the Editor of the National Pilot.
Also, in their new enterprise of irresponsibility, one of Bukola Saraki radio propagandists in Kwara State, Mr. Tunji Moronfoye con his weekly radio programme on Albarka FM on Thursday 24th, October, 2019 ignorantly criticized and ridiculed the nomination of women and young people as commissioners in the state. The Governor of Kwara State had earlier sent the names of 9 women and 7 men to the Kwara State Assembly for confirmation as commissioners. According to Moronfoye, Saraki media propagandist cum activist said I am surprised that the governor (AbdulRahman) is just populating his cabinet with just women and young people. Moronfoye further said what experience do women and young people have because ministries are supposed to be manned by people who are consultants in their fields? However, callers on the show unanimously condemned Moronfoye for his reckless discriminatory comments against women and young people on AbdulRahmans commissioner nomination list.
In addition to the aforementioned, Kwara PDP have also been hiding behind some young guys in the state to spread falsehood in an attempt to discredit the government of AbdulRahman whom has shown commitment to fix the mess left behind by Kwara PDP. It is noteworthy that the government of AbdulRAhman has been enjoying the support of Kwarans since it came to power due to its efficiency in delivering good governance.
As a Kwaran who desire prosperity and progress of the state, I advise Kwara PDP to desist from fake news peddling and work together with the ruling party by providing credible and responsible opposition. It is obvious that Kwara PDP are not ready for their new role as opposition party because one will be right to say Kwara PDP have adopted the template of their national party in fake news peddling and the use of young Nigerians in propagating their fake news enterprise. As such, I urge Kwara PDP to reach out to Kwara APC for free tutorial on how to play opposition the way it should be played.

|Education / Letter To The Governor Of Kwara State, H.e. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq By Ad Kehinde by kennydee05(m): 5:25pm On Sep 17, 2019|
LETTER TO THE GOVERNOR OF KWARA STATE, H.E. ABDULRAHMAN ABDULRAZAQ
Mr. Governor, following your visit to the Kwara State Library Complex yesterday (Monday, 16th September, 2019), it is pertinent that I write you this open letter. It is my believe that after you have gone through it, you will see the reasons why there is an urgent need to give public libraries in Kwara state necessary attention that would lead to sustainable information literacy in the state and also make Kwara state a leading knowledge society in Nigeria.
I started having an interest in the library during my secondary education days at Iludun-Oro Comprehensive High School, Oro, Kwara State. Fortunately for me, there was a functional library in my hometown, David Afolayan Memorial Library. The library was donated by the Children of the Late David Afolayan in memory of their late father. I was a regular user of David Afolayan Memorial Library because the library has it in collection textbooks that are of importance to my secondary school education. However, as I write this letter, the library has become a shadow of itself. The once cherished library has now metamorphosed into a forest, while the rooms in the library have turned to home for rodents and all sort of animal species and the books on the shelves have accumulated dust to the extent that some of the texts on them are no longer readable. Similarly, this is the ugly condition other few public libraries in the state are.
Sir, as big as Kwara State is in terms of land mass, and growing populations coupled with the literacy not so perfect literacy level in the state, it saddens me that the only place we can call library (stated owned), the Kwara State Library Complex has been a shadow of itself, the complex is not conducive for reading and it also accommodates outdated reading materials. I am glad that you have witnessed this yourself following your visit, however, beyond the visit I would be more than glad to see a total turn around for good in the condition of public library services across the state.
Sir, it is understandable that public libraries in Kwara state are founded wholly with taxpayers money, therefore, in agreement with the UNESCO public library manifesto (1972), public libraries in Kwara state should stop charging people for its usage, particularly users below higher institution level. This would encourage primary school pupils and secondary school students to use the library and also improve the reading culture among them.
Sir, you would agree with me that education is an essential instrument for human development and library is one of the mediums for its actualisation. Based on this, the public libraries have obligations to provide accessible and relevant information services and equal use to all members of the state irrespective of their age, gender, religion, economic status, political status, state of origin, nationality, age, religion, ethnic, professional and educational status. However, the current state of public libraries services vis-a-vis dilapidated building, outdated reading materials, lack of professional librarians, incessant power supply, lack of ICT facilities, poor funding, library staff attitude to work and lack of enough public libraries in the state has made it impossible for children of nobody and Kwarans at large to have access to better library resources that would improve their academic performance and equip them for lifelong learning.
Sir, following the aforementioned, I would like to make some recommendations on how to resuscitate the state owned public libraries. Sir, it is pertinent to note that the library is the hub of academic activities in the state and as such, there should be at least an ultramodern library in each of the 16 LGAs in the state while the Kwara State Library Complex should be made a cynosure of all the eyes to provide qualitative electronic library services.
Sir, I would like to bring to your attention that public libraries, globally are currently evolving to meet the needs of their diverse communities beyond repository of books and offering conversation library services. Today's libraries provide invaluable resources that befits the 21st century and day society. In light of this, Kwara State Library Complex should offer invaluable services such as coding, gamification, animation, App development, and other related IT inclined services that would prepare children and youths in the state for the future.
Sir, it is also pertinent for government at all levels in the state to develop a sectoral plan strategy that would help to transform public libraries in the state into an institution that would equip Kwarans with requisite information that would make them information literate person and subsequently make Kwara state a knowledge society.
Sir, owing to the present state of public libraries across the state, there is a need to have special intervention fund and increase the budgetary allocation of the Kwara State Library Board in order to revamp the public libraries across the state and build more public libraries so as to increase access of Kwarans to public libraries as it is impossible to make credible gain in education without improved library services.
In addition, sir, the Kwara State Library board under close supervision of the State Ministry of Education should strategically and radically embark on "Operation Equip the Libraries", this would help to bring back to live public libraries across the state.
Sir, there is a need to have local community book repositories and mobile libraries across the state. More so, Kwara State Library Board Should embark on literacy competition among primary school pupils and secondary school students in the state as this will help to improve their reading culture, literacy and also improve their academic performance.
Sir, in the face of the tiny budgetary allocation and increase in the state wage bill, Kwara State Government should collaborate with private organisations to support the state in revamping the public libraries in the state. Also, the state should apply for donation of books from national and international organisations to complement the library collections.
Sir, there is a need to improve the budgetary allocation of the library so as to allow the library meet up with its financial responsibilities. And also, the Kwara State Library Board should recruit competent professional librarians that would help in providing library services and manage the libraries.
Lastly, it is important that the Kwara State House of Assembly review law that guides legal deposit in the state so as to encourage compliance.
In conclusion, I would like you to know that a literate child will grow up to become a literate youth and a literate you will grow up to become a literate adult. This can only be possible if necessary action is taken to revamp the public libraries in the state.
Yours sincerely Sir,
Adetola A. Kehinde (CLN)
