Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, has ordered the immediate reversal to the use of the national coat of arms in the state.
With this order, the state has dropped the one adopted in 2012 by the previous administration.
“With immediate effect, the administration has dropped the Kwara State Coat of Arms and has reverted to the use of the Federal Coat of Arms,” Rafiu Ajakaye, the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, said in a statement he issued on Friday.
The statement said the Secretary to the State Government had been mandated to implement the development.
Kwara adopted a distinct coat of arms in 2012.
