FG Lauded For Approving Kwara North Road Projects 

Kwara North Development Council (KWANDCO) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government over approval to construct some major roads across the Kwara North senatorial district.

The Federal Executive Council (FEC) at its meeting last Wednesday named four roads in the Kwara North zone totalling 284 kilometres to be constructed under a public-private partnership with the BUA Group.

KWANDCO, in a statement through its chairman, Hon. Ahmed Muhammad, described as commendable the listing of the four roads among federal projects using the President’s Executive Order 7 under the Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme with the BUA Group.

“We, on behalf of the people of Kwara North, Kwara state and the commuting public, want to appreciate the All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government heeding to the plight of the people of the area and, indeed, the commuting public,” Ahmad said.

“We want to use this medium to appeal to the BUA Group to ensure speedy commencement and quality work. We urge the BUA to consider the plight of the people in the captured areas. Continuity and completion in good time can only be guaranteed when the projects are properly funded,” the chairman added.

The group also commended Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara state and other relevant stakeholders for their role in ensuring the roads got the Federal Executive Council (FEC) attention and approval, adding that the completion of these roads would breathe life into the social and economic dynamism of Kwara North zone which, it said, is the agricultural epicentre of Kwara state serving agricultural produce, in large quantity, to the South West and other parts of the country.

The roads, as approved by FEC, are; Kosubosu – Kaiama – Bode-Saadu (130km), Bacita – Tsonga – Lafiagi (83km), Eyenkorin – Afon – Offa – Odo Otin (49km) and Okuta – Bukuro (32km).
