Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfattah Ahmed, has made it known that his government is set to renovate 420 classrooms across the 16 local government areas of the state.
New Telegraph reports that Ahmed disclosed this while addressing members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the monthly stakeholders’ meeting of the party held at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Ilorin.
Although, the governor did not give a breakdown of the beneficiary schools, he told his audience that the schools have been selected and will be given a face-lift to provide conducive academic environment for teaching and learning, New Telegraph reports.
He also promised to complete all ongoing projects in the state as part of his efforts at providing quality and necessary infrastructure in the state as he assured the party stalwarts that the government would continue to pay contractors through the Kwara Infrastructure Fund (IF-K) with a view to completing projects on schedule.
On the N5 billion London and Paris Club loan refunds received by the state government, Governor Ahmed said about N2 billion had been released for the 16 local government councils and Colleges of Education to augment the payment of their salaries.
Meanwhile, Governor Ahmed at the weekend warned students in stateowned tertiary institutions to steer clear of cultism as he vowed that anyone found guilty of involvement in cultism or related illegality risked a 10-year jail term, a hefty fine and rustication.
