The council in a statement jointly singed by it’s chairman and Secretary, Hon. Abubakar Mora and Hon. Manzuma Kawu Abdulmalik respectively, said the decision to request for the above positions was arrived at during a brainstorming session over the lingering plight of Kwara North where all stakeholders from the district were in attendance.
