ABN – The Kwara State government has contracted N14 billion to reconstruct roads within the Kwara State, Nigeria.
N8 billion has been contracted for the Kaiama-Kishi Road and a further N6 billion for the Ilesha-Baruba/Gwanara Road.
This is part of the Kwara State government’s commitment to improving the condition of the roads including the federal roads within the state.
The Kwara State Governor Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed said: “We have not reneged on our responsibility to ensure that the roads will be done.
“The state government will continue to embark on road rehabilitation. By God’s grace, the next few weeks, once the rains subside, I am going to flag off the Kaiama-Kishi Road, and the Ilesha-Baruba Road.”
The state government urged the Federal Government to reimburse some of the funds spent on federal roads as the state has little finances.
Ahmed continued: “In the last 10 years, there is no presence of any good road project in Kwara from the Federal Government.”
