Senator Saliu Mustapha Facilitates Construction of Gaa-Aremu Road

The Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial district, Mallam Saliu Mustapha has facilitated the construction of Gaa-Aremu road in Ilorin West local government area.

The major road construction project is being  funded with N2.7 trillion supplementary budget recently signed by President Bola Tinubu.

The construction of the asphaltic road, which was recently approved, comes after a series of passionate requests to Senator Saliu Mustapha, the senator representing the Kwara Central Senatorial District, from residents and community development associations from Kuntu, Isale-Jagun, Kangu, Gaa-Aremu and other areas of Ilorin West.

Speaking to our correspondent during inspection visit, one of Senator Mustapha’s legislative aides, Alhaji Tunde Abdulkadir, noted that his visit was to connect the contractor handling the project with the community representatives for adequate synergy.

He said Senator’s monitoring team would ensure delivery of standard and quality road project.

He added that projects will complement the giant strides of the KWSG on road infrastructure.

“All hands must be on deck to support the KWSG on the improvement of roads and necessary infrastructure in the state. As we all know, the state is doing a lot already and we can’t leave everything to the government.”

Reacting to the development, the President of Isale-Jagun Community Development Association, Salman Yusuf Adebayo, described the project as a dream come true for the area.

“Our people have suffered for too long and they are excited that the reconstruction process is finally happening. If you have plied the road before, you will understand how important this project is to our people. If completed, the road would ease life and improve businesses in the area.”

He then expressed the community’s appreciation to the President, the Governor of Kwara State, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and Senator Saliu Mustapha for the intervention, promising that the communities will follow through on the project from execution to completion stage.
