KWARA State Road Maintenance Agency (KWARMA) has begun massive rehabilitation of 10 roads across Ilorin, the state capital, including the long-neglected Offa Garage Roundabout Road.

This followed the release of N20m by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for immediate rehabilitation of roads that are in bad state and needed urgent fixing in the capital city.

General Manager of KWARMA Usman Baba Jibril, an engineer, said it has already started massive rehabilitation works on the Offa Garage and Geri Alimi-Asa Dam roads.
The governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, said the agency has the mandate to quickly fix the roads to end the nightmares of the people.

“We have started work immediately based on the fund the governor has just released to KWARMA and Kwara State Asphalt Plant,” Jibril said.

He listed other roads to be covered “under Phase 1” to include Isale Aluko-Kokorokan-Ita Kudimoh Road; Adeta-Al-Hikmah road; Olorunshogo-Geri Alimi road; Kaduna Road, Adewole; Osere-Cemetry road; General Hospital- Geri Alimi; Offa Garage Geri Alimi Road; and Sani Okin Road.
Jibril said they have a mandate to complete the rehabilitation within the next seven days, with the phase two of the works likely to begin very soon.

AbdulRazaq had said last week that he would embark on rehabilitation of roads within the metropolis and other parts of the state in phases
He lamented the poor state of the roads across the state, adding that the government would collaborate with the Federal Government and private sectors on some of the roads, especially federal roads.
But, Abdulrazaq has reiterated the assurance of his administration to create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive in the state.

The governor stated this yesterday when he paid an unscheduled visit to Olam Grains and Cashew Processing Factory at Ogbondoroko in in Asa Local Government Area.
AbdulRazaq, who lauded the economic impact the factory offers the people of Kwara State and Nigeria at large, especially in the areas of job opportunity to a minimum of 1,500 people, assured that government would encourage the expansion of business across the state.

Reacting to the complaints of the Association of Cashew Farmers and Dealers, he promised to invite them for an interface at an appropriate time towards addressing their problems.

The Plant Manager Olam Cashew Processing Factory, Mr. Sajjad Hussein, stated that there are five stages involved in cashew processing and would take up to eight days before the end product is realised.
The governor used the occasion to commission a water project provided by the company for Ogbondoroko community, as part of its corporate social responsibility programme.
