Kabba/Ilorin road construction begins

07 April 2014, 21:04 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Federal Ministry of Works will on Thursday commence the reconstruction of the Kabba/Ilorin road.

Minister of Works, Mike Onolimemeh, disclosed this in his letters of invitation to stakeholders in Kogi and Kwara States for the ceremony.

Senator Smart Adeyemi, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District, who also confirmed the flag off, said the development was a “dream come true” for his people.

 The Senator said he had communicated with the Chairman of Kabba/BuunnuLocal Government, Funsho Olorunfemi, whom he said had assured that everything would be put in place to ensure successful flag off.

He enjoined the people of Kogi State to troop out in large numbers to appreciate the Federal Government as well as the state government in bringing the reconstruction to reality.

“The road is important to the socio-economic development of Kogi and Kwara states and we must all show concern by appreciating the government that has realised the need to fix the road,” the senator said.

 He also commended Governor Idris Wada for ensuring that that reconstruction came to practical fruition during his tenure.
