Nigeria elections
Lagos – Kwara State House of Assembly Speaker, Razak Atunwa, who has reportedly won the Ilorin West/Asa Federal Constituency election, pledged to promote the development of the region.

He pledged supporters not aligned to his All Progressives Congress would not be left out.

Atunwa expressed gratitude to have received surpassing support from the people of his constituency in the House of Representatives elections which led to the said victory of the APC, scoring 58 227 votes against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP’s) 31 469.

“This landslide victory was recorded because the people have reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over insecurity, poor economy, unemployment, disrespect for the rule of law among other social menace unleashed on Nigerians by the PDP, the spirit of change!” he said.

Atunwa acknowledged thousands did not vote for him.

“Not all votes for APC in my constituency but the majority did, I have been elected to represent the constituency regardless of party difference.
I promise to focus on representing the interest of all without sentiments,” he said.

He pledged to empower the people, facilitate employment for youths, give scholarship to students, cooperative system for our women, and infrastructural development among others.

“My goal is to make our constituency a respected and admired constituency around the country, a constituency with the best human resource and development records in Nigeria.”
