Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed has said that the state lost an investment worth N2.5 billion due to litigation by community emmbers.

Ahmed said further that a private investor had wanted to construct an Amusement Park in Ilorin, the state capital, but had to abandon the plans because of a pending court case.

The governor made the disclosure on Friday, May 15, 2015, when the leadership of Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union, paid him a courtesy visit.

“N2.5bn which would have been invested in the Amusement Park in Ilorin to generate more employment opportunities for our youths was diverted,” Ahmed said.
