    Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Wednesday said his administration is committed to not leaving any child behind.

    In what captures the 2020 theme of the Children's Day celebration, AbdulRazaq said the administration's commitment to gender inclusion and its huge investments in education gives the Kwara girl child a head start in life.

    "Our administration stands in firm solidarity with the Kwara child and children all over the world as our country again commemorates the Children’s Day," the Governor said in a statement by his spokesman Rafiu Ajakaye.

    "Our policy is to ensure that no child is left behind or denied every right and privileges to compete with their peers.

    "The theme for this year’s Children’s Day is ‘Promoting Girl Child Education for Sustainable Development.’ Apart from the general bias for children and all disadvantaged groups, this administration is committed to the well-being of the girl child. Today, we have given the girl child a bragging right to say that her state, Kwara, holds the ace on the African continent in terms of women inclusion in governance.

    "We also had the girl child in mind when we enrolled Kwara State in the national school feeding programme because of its consequences for increased school enrolment, reduction of out-of-school children, poverty reduction, and women empowerment.

    "Our investments in the primary education sector, including paying better attention to children with special education needs, are designed to secure a brighter future for the Kwara child. Even in this time of COVID-19 pandemic, the administration has ensured that the children continue to get attention through our radio and online classes.

    "While wishing all our children a happy 2020 celebration, the administration assures them that nothing will be left undone to protect them from all forms of abuse, violence, and stigmatisation."

    *AbdulRazaq greets Muslims at Eid, says ban on large gatherings stays*

    • Gov says religious places remain shut

    Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has felicitated with the Muslim community over the completion of the Ramadan fast, praying the God to reward and grant the supplications of the faithful.

    The Governor however called on Muslims to observe their Eid prayers at home as the ban on large social and religious gatherings — as is typical of the end of Ramadan prayers — remains in place as part of the measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19 pandemic.

    “We congratulate our Muslim brethren on the successful completion of Ramadan fasting, and pray the Almighty Allah to accept it as an act of worship, forgive our excesses, grant all our supplications during and after the holy month, and gift us long life and good health to observe several Ramadan in the best state of faith in God,” the Governor said on Saturday in a statement by his spokesman Rafiu Ajakaye.

    “Ramadan was a time of complete and sincere submission to the will of God. It served to purify our souls and train us to be discipline, selfless, and conscious of our creator. We beseech Kwarans and indeed Nigerians to internalise the takeaways and let them guide our daily existence for the sake of humanity.

    “As the fast ends today, we repeat that the 2020 Ramadan came at an extraordinary time of human existence during which we are to temper certain rights and privileges to preserve the human race against the ravaging deadly Corona Virus (COVID-19). To that extent, there shall be no large gathering for congregational Eid prayer or other large social gatherings in Kwara State this year. For emphasis, all religious places remain shut until further notice. All malls and related places are to prevent such conditions or interactions that can spread the virus. All of these are in line with the COVID-19 safety protocols which have been designed solely to flatten the curve of transmission and protect the people.”
