The Executive Governor of Kwara State, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq in his relentless efforts to improve the standard of living of all Kwarans directed the reconstruction of major infrastructural needs of Kpada community.
The community is one of many in Kwara that has suffered over a decade of government neglect in infrastructure such as lack of road networks, lack of effective and affordable healthcare delivery, and non-access to modern telecommunications services.
They also lack over 10 years of no power supply, lack of quality education amongst other basic infrastructural needs.
The Governor is walking the talk as work began at site he inspected during his visit only over a week ago.
Construction of the Patigi/Kpada road is ongoing as promised by the Governor to fix basic infrastructural needs of the people.
Grading and expansion of the road has commenced on the site as heavy duty trucks arrived with construction materials.
AbdulRazaq said this is in line with his promise to prioritise the provision of critical infrastructure which plays an important role in economic growth and development of the state.
One of the elders of Kpada Community, Garkuwa Kpada was at the construction site to confirm the progress of work.
Speaking in his native Nupe, Kpada lauded the Governor for coming to their aid, admitting that the construction of Kpada/Patigi road will ease the difficulty encountered all season, especially by farmers and market women.
