Work has commenced on the recently approved one kilometer Gaa Aremu-Isale Jagun-Kuntu road project in the Ilorin West Local Government Area of Kwara State by the Federal Government.
The construction of the asphaltic road, which was facilitated by the senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Saliu Mustapha, comes after a series of passionate requests to him by residents and community development associations from Kuntu, Isale-Jagun, Gaa-Aremu and other areas of Ilorin West.
The major road project was captured under the recently passed two point seven trillion naira supplementary budget proposed by President Bola Tinubu.
Speaking to newsmen while on a inspection visit to the road project site in company of representatives of the beneficiary communities to monitor the ongoing project, the Liaison officer to Senator Saliu Mustapha, Alhaji Tunde Abdulkadir, noted that his visit was to connect the contractor handling the project with the community‘s representatives for adequate synergy and to ensure that the road project was executed inline with its specifications.
He said it was also to reiterate the fact that the Senator’s monitoring team would not settle for less in terms of standard and quality of the project.
