The Kwara House of Assembly has urged the Federal Government to re-award the contracts of Ajase-Ipo, Ijagbo-Offa-Erin-Ile roads in the state to ease vehicular movement.
This was one of the resolutions of the State Assembly in Ilorin after the consideration of the Report of the House Committee on Works, on the slow pace of work on the rehabilitated road.
The committee had noted that the road had caused untold hardship to the people of the affected communities and commuters.
The Assembly, however, directed its Committee on Works and Transport to collaborate with members representing the State at the National Assembly to ensure that all FERMA road projects in the state were completed according to specifications.
Hon. Giwa Afolabi, who presented the committee’s report, observed that there was a stop order on the project, awarded by the Federal Government at a cost of N248 million in March 2011.
The Assembly also urged the state government to include Idofian-Igbowu-Maloko-Igbaja in the Ifelodun Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, in the road construction budget of 2013.
The lawmakers, however, directed the Ifelodun LGA to ensure regular maintenance of the road, pending its completion.
