The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has granted approvals to the BUA Group for the rehabilitation of four major roads in Kwara State as part of efforts to open up the state for socioeconomic growth.
Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq disclosed this in Ilorin on Wednesday in a personally signed statement.
The roads are Kosubosu-Kaiama-Bode Saadu (130km); Bacita-Shonga-Lafiagi (83km); Eiyenkorin-Afon-Offa-Odo Ottin (49km); and Okuta-Bukuro Road, which connects to the Benin Republic (32km) making a total of 294km in all.
The four roads will be constructed under the Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme (Executive Order 7).
According to Governor Abdulrazaq, upon completion, the projects will revolutionise road travels within Kwara and neighbouring states, with huge potentials for development and food security.
The governor thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the landmark development.
“We similarly commend BUA for keying into the laudable initiative. Our administration will offer all the support to make these projects come through for the benefit of our people,” he added.
