The Federal Government has appealed to Kwara State government to provide land to enable it complete the second phase of the 1000 housing units designed for the state.
This is even as it summoned the contractor handling Michael Imoudu Way, Ilorin to Abuja to explain the delay over the completion of the road project. Minster of State for Power, Works, and Housing, Suleiman Hassan, said this in Ilorin during a courtesy call on Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed in his office after the inspection tour of Federal Government projects in North Central geo-political zone of the country.
He inspected Kabba road, Ilorin road, Offa bye-pass and Ajaseipo-Offa road among others, which he expressed satisfaction except the one opposite Michael Imoudu National Institute for Labour Studies, MINILS, along Ajaseipo Road, Ilorin for which he summoned the contractor to Abuja. His words:
“We have cluster of houses in Kwara, about 1000 housing units, and we are almost through with the compensation. We are moving to the second phase and we are appealing to the Kwara State government to provide land to enable us complete them in good time.”
