Kwara Acquires 20,065 Hectares For Ilorin SmartCity Project

Date: 2024-04-11

The Kwara State Government has procured land in both Ilorin East and Ilorin South Local Government Areas to establish the New Ilorin SmartCity Estate.

This acquisition came after a productive stakeholders meeting between the government and landowners.

In a statement by Abdulrazaq Yusuf, Press Secretary of the State Geographic Information Service, the land acquisition is deemed to serve the best interests of the state’s residents and the nation as a whole.

Abdulkareem Sulyman, Executive Chairman of the Kwara State Geographic Information Service, affirmed this during a recent courtesy visit to the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Zulu-Gambari, at his palace in Ilorin, the state capital.

The statement read, “The chairman commended the royal father for his fatherly role in piloting the affairs of the Ilorin metropolis and environs, adding that the motives behind the visit were to intimate the royal father of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq’s quest for the acquisition of about 20,065 hectares of land, in both Ilorin East and Ilorin South Local Government Areas respectively, for the establishment of the New Ilorin SmartCity Estate.

“The SmartCity would accommodate modern schools, hospitals, markets, police stations, fire services, stadia and other social amenities.

“The SmartCity Estate would also House 1,000 Federal Renewed Hope housing units as well as accommodate the Phase Two Industrial Park and a host of other infrastructure.”

Sulyman also affirmed that when fully activated, the project would provide employment opportunities for youths.

He disclosed that owners of the acquired lands would soon be compensated, as they have already been asked to forward their claims to the office of the Executive Chairman, KW-GIS.

Sulyman, therefore, solicited the full support and cooperation of the traditional ruler.
