lagos vs kwara state

May 20, 2017 – Lagos State @50 Celebrates Progress As Kwara State @50 Celebrates Poverty

So I had to pick my pen and write this out as a concerned citizen…..
Lagos and Kwara state celebrating 50years but the questions are what are they really celebrating? Is the celebration Worth celebrating?.
Yes will be my answer but this is where the separation in the celebrations comes in.

Is celebration Worth celebrating?
Answer: A big yes

Lagos State celebrates 50years of glory and the power for the common man who is on that street of agege,mushin,iyana ipaja,alimosho and other parts of Lagos because he knows if he hustle well irrespective of who he or she is(igbo or Hausa and Yoruba) the opportunity will always show up.

The question is why will a common man think like that? The state has given much opportunity for growth and you say Lagos State generates much… Why won’t it generate….

Motivation is the word (worker are paid on 25th so I know in Lagos) even if little sabotaging still happens, it bound to happen in a government but the government is what? Responsible,responsive and committed from generations of leaders in the state that why Lagos is loved by all

Now let’s talk about Kwara state.

Is this celebration Worth celebrating?
Answer:yes ironically

Kwara state celebrates 50years of poverty, shame

This is a state I have dreamt of coming to before now but let me give an insight about Kwara state after my two months stay. Lawlessness and impunity rubbed to your face is the order of every Blessed day in Kwara state even the people know it but they can’t speak up,the roads are as bad as I can remember and 50year celebrations with 85million is the best they can do now, Kwara state worker work round the clock but I can tell those people have nothing to prove they are government workers.

You ask why?the answer is simple they have not being paid for months and the governor ride in a long(15 at least cars) convoy everyday and I still saw that this morning. And this particular state collects tax everyday( Companies like Coca Cola, tuyil,and other companies are running because of the excessive tax) people at Ilorin markets can testify.

The questions are what are thesetaxes used for?. As far as my memory serves me no promotion if you are not an indigene. I don’t know who does that and the SSG to the state came out to tell people that they celebrate peace and unity….(Lagos no get peace abi or unity ni).

Ahhhhhh you don’t have fear of God Mr SSG… Unity and peace in abject poverty and impunity rubbed to the face of the people I guess by the time they want to celebrate 100year they will be celebrating God knows.

In summary. This is like an explanation of a 50 year old man(Kwara state) celebrating foolishness and another celebrating greatness (Lagos State).

I rest my case.

  1. kand k sates in north central region

    kogi and kwara never had good leadership..past governors , saraki and co,including current one ran it like a family business.audu and co squandered in kogi too.is it mr show man dino displaying thuggery in nat assembly..tell me what the celebration is all about.

  2. Bt d pics above is dt of ambo of lagos and yahaya bello of kogi nt kw/st govno anyway there is wide margin kws can nevr b compared wit lag oooooo

  3. You have been in Kwara for only two months no wonder u no nothing. Pls why did you leave Lagos for ilorin hustel no pay abi Maga no pay? Tuyil is still functioning as at today infact more land was given to them by the state Govt.to expand. Coca-cola restructuring. Kwarans are not lawless oo. Pls don’t abuse us. It’s good in Kwara

  4. @ simi sorry ooo .is like you are in another kwara .wat dis guy said about kwara is the truth and nothing but the truth .

  5. @simi for your information, I never left Lagos State I just came to serve in kwara state, and deep down in your mind you know kwara state is just too useless, I have a business in Lagos already so I decided to start a branch in kwara but it failed due to excessive tax

  6. Coca-Cola is not restructuring anything, another question you should ask yourself is why Coca-Cola failed in the first place, another point is do know there use to be a car assembling plant in kwara… Well if you don’t know now you know.. The place is used for dump and scrap site now… Gari alimi does not need a bridge but if it even need a bridge not 7billion niara bridge ….we all know that 7billion will pay all staff in kwara salaries….. So if really you want to defend a government pls do your homework because I know what am saying when I write…… I can give plenty explanation with proof….
