While Kwara State will be receiving the award at the BusinessDay’s States Competitiveness and Good Governance Awards ceremony holding in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, on Friday, January 27, 2023, Ogun State will get deservedly awarded on housing development.

The sterling performance of Kwara State under Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq on youth empowerment and women inclusiveness in governance and skills acquisition through the Kwara State Social Investment Programme (KWASSIP) as several billions of naira have been disbursed as grants and loans to boost the activities of Micro, Small and Medium-scale Enterprises (MSMEs) in the state.
This did not only empower the youth and women across the 18 local government areas of the state, but also accelerated sustainable growth and development through a poverty alleviation programme designed under the code name – KWAPRENEUR.
In Ogun State, Governor Dapo Abiodun has spent billions of naira on provision of low-cost housing across the four zones of the state: Egba, Remo, Ijebu and Yewa, constructing 2,500 housing units in his first tenure.
For the first time in 47 years of Ogun state’s existence, Governor Abiodun became the first governor to complete 2,500 housing units in his first tenure, which is far more than the entire housing stocks provided by both the military and civilian governments in the last 47 years.
