Kwara, Kogi Govs, lobby FG on Lokoja-Ilorin-Omu-Aran-Kabba roads 

The government of Kogi, Kwara has approached the federal government to guarantee a prompt approach and heightened efforts to complete the Lokoja-Ilorin-Omu-Aran-Kabba roads.

This was disclosed in a statement by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara state.

According to the statement issued on Wednesday, AbdulRazaq disclosed he and his counterpart,governor Ahmed Ododo of Kogi state has met with the minister of works David Umahi to make a strong pitch on behalf of our people for the dualisation of the Ilorin-Lokoja expressway via Omu Aran and Kabba.

He said, “I also appealed to the Honourable Minister for the immediate construction of two flyovers at Oko-Olowo Junction and Shao Junction, both on the Ilorin Jebba Expressway.

“This appeal became necessary to save lives at these important axes of the road. It is instructive that Hon. Ahmad Yinka Esho (Ilorin East/South Federal  Constituency), who also joined our delegation, had raised a motion in the House of Representatives on these two critical junctions and a need for the Federal Government to urgently address the issue.

He also said the Ohan Bridge in Moro; Share to Patigi Road; and Wawa, Kaiama, to Kishi Road also featured in our discussion with the Minister, and “we truly appreciate the warm reception that His Excellency Umahi accorded us.

“We look forward to beautiful outcomes from this important engagement, while commending the President for his commitments to equitable infrastructural and socioeconomic development in every part of our country.”
