Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has ordered all contractors handling various projects in the State to return to sites with immediate effect.

He gave the order in Ilorin, the state capital on Tuesday, August 9, at the monthly Stakeholders Meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ahmed said energy, water, roads, health and education projects would be completed as the state’s revenue improves.

He said government places high premium on quality infrastructure, promising not to relent in facilitating the economic growth of the State.

Ahmed said N5 million has been earmarked for special infrastructure intervention in each of the 193 wards in the state.

He promised to begin another round of youth and women empowerment programmes next week to stimulate the state’s economy.

The Governor said his government has disbursed N160million to local government councils to pay July salaries of local government workers and basic education teachers.
