Date: 2024-05-19

A socio-cultural organisation, the Igbaja Progressive Union (IPU), has praised Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for earmarking ₦10.08 billion towards the construction of roads in the Kwara South Senatorial District, according to news report from The Whistler.

During a press conference in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, the group highlighted that these proposed road projects represent a significant achievement for the district's residents, who have endured years of neglect from previous administrations.

The National Chairman of the Union, Dr Oluwatoyin Alabi, expressed the elation of the Igbaja people over the awarding of contracts for the rehabilitation of dilapidated roads in the area. Notably, he mentioned the 12-kilometre Aiase-Ipo-Okeye Road, which has long caused misery and hindered economic growth in the region.

Dr Alabi detailed the scope of the ₦10 billion projects, including the construction of the 11-kilometre Owu Falls Phase I at a cost of ₦3,998,838,427.50, to be completed within 18 months; the rehabilitation of the 20-kilometre Arandun Township Roundabout-Esie-Oro Township Road at ₦3,821,595,765.63, scheduled for completion in 10 months; and the rehabilitation of the 12-kilometre Aiase-Ipo-Okeye Road, budgeted at ₦2,256,879,187.50, with an eight-month completion timeline.

He said: “We recognise the governor’s efforts in implementing various interventions to alleviate the challenges faced by the people of Igbaja.

”We appreciate the appointment of our sons to Cabinet positions, thus providing our people with a pride of place in his government.

“Ongoing repair of moribund dam that had been abandoned for years by past administration, which serves Igbaja and neighbouring communities.

“Allocation of a N10 million intervention fund for victims, who lost their properties during the devastating rainstorm in 2022. The governor’s generous support aided in the recovery of those affected by the disaster.

“Personal donation of N1 million to support the Igbaja Peoples Forum in procuring palliatives to cushion the hardship caused by the petrol subsidy removal.

“Timely repair of the 2.5MVA transformer sub-station benefitting Igbaja and 58 other communities in 2023.
