Speaker Danladi, Kwara North stakeholders commends Tinubu, AbdulRazaq over construction of Bode-Saadu-Kaiama-Kosubosu road

The Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Engr. Yakubu Danladi-Salihu says the ongoing construction of the Bode Saadu- -Kaiama-Kosubosu road will open up business opportunities between Kwara and neighboring states.

Rt. Hon. Danladi-Salihu who stated this during a tour of the road in the company of the Kwara North stakeholders also commended former President Muhammadu Buhari, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for facilitating the road through tax credit.

The Speaker explained that before now, the tax credit was unknown to Kwarans, stressing that it was Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq who  lobbied the federal government  to get the road awarded to BUA Group of Company.

“In Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, we have a Governor that means well for his people and goes all out to improve their living standard. But for his efforts, Kwara State would not have benefitted from the tax credit initiative, so on behalf of the stakeholders from the Kwara North Senatorial district, especially our traditional, community, religious and political leaders, we are grateful to the President and the Governor for this massive project that will fastrack development in our state”, the Speaker noted.

He also noted that farmers from the Kwara North which is reputed as the food basket of the state, have been going through hell transporting their farm produce to the center because of poor road network.

“The road, when completed will among other benefits serve as a unifying factor for the five Local Government areas in the northern part of the state – Baruten, Edu, Moro Kaiama, and Patigi – and it will ensure transportation of goods and services especially agricultural farm produce to other parts of the state and across the country as a whole. This will also ensure that our farm produce get to the market on time and ultimately crash food prices”

On their part, Hon Abdullah Danbaba, Hon. Madinat AbdulRaheem, Rt. Hon. Matthew Okedare and other stakeholders who also spoke on the tour commented on the economic benefit of the roads and applauded President Tinubu and Governor AbdulRazaq for the infrastructural development.

The road, awarded by the Federal Government and facilitated by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq when completed will link Bode Saadu-Kaiama-Kosubosu; Bacita-Shonga-Lafiagi; Eiyenkorin-Afon-Offa-Odo Ottin; and Okuta-Bukuro Road, and then connects to the Benin Republic.
