The Kwara State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed has called for more Federal Government presence on infrastructural development in the state. He said such projects will bring financial reprieve to the state through savings that will be invested in rehabilitating state roads, in addition to attracting investments.
Speaking during a courtesy call on him by Senate Committee on Works at Government House, Ilorin, Ahmed said federal government should particularly facilitate the construction of Kaiama-Kishi road.
The Governor who noted that the road stretches from Lagos–Sokoto passing through Ogun, Oyo, Kwara and Kebbi states, said “the portion that links Kaiama-Kishi is very critical for us because the people in those axis are predominantly agrarian and they contribute heavily to the agricultural revenue that accrues to the state.
According to Governor Ahmed, his administration will continue to collaborate with the federal government through the oversight functions of the National Assembly in order to take the roads to usable levels that will ease movement of goods and services across the country
