Kwara State governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed yesterday said that inclusiveness is critical to ensuring good governance and stability in the country.
Ahmed said this during an interaction with traditional rulers from Kwara south senatorial district of the state at the Government House, Ilorin. He said that inclusiveness is essential not only to get feedback from the public, but also to consult key stakeholders and other representatives of the people concerning key decisions and policies that affect their welfare.
Such inclusiveness, he said, ensures the support of critical stakeholders, promotes a sense of belonging and goes a long way towards guaranteeing the success of key government policies and projects.
Ahmed maintained that development-orientation is now geared towards a bottom-up approach, which goes a long way towards creating a match between government programmes and the people’s expectations in a manner that creates harmony in the system. The governor also briefed the monarchs on the state of affairs in the state, regarding its finances and development and called on them to continue to support government’s programmes, as well as promote peace and harmony in the state.
Ahmed assured that the state government would continue to adopt an open door policy and consultation to give every part of the state and all citizens a sense of belonging in the governance of the state.
