In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, on Friday, the Kwara helmsman, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, said he will send a bill to the state house of assembly to that effect.

Since the return to democratic rule, the state has produced late Mohammed Lawal, Bukola Saraki, and Abdulfatah Ahmed as past governors.
