Work will begin on abandoned projects across the 16 local government areas of Kwara State by December.
Special Adviser to the governor on Political Matters, Usman Bibire Ajape, dropped this hint when members of Ibagun Progressives visited him in his office in Ilorin.
He expressed the hope that the monthly allocation coming to the state from the federation accounts would increase before December.
He used the forum to clear the air on the rumour making the round that the government was introducing new tax regime to deliberately put more burden on the masses. Ajape said there was no any iota of truth in the claim.
He said the government needed to block leakages in its internally revenue generated mechanism to enable it have more funds to complete abandoned projects.
The Political Adviser explained that the tax policy was designed to block leakages and curb wasteful spending.
He added that the move would make government to be less dependent on federal allocation to implement projects for the benefit of the people.
Ajape, who expressed regrets that the allocation to the state has not been encouraging, said the administration was not relenting in sustaining projects it had implemented.
He noted that the state government meant well for the people of Kwara and would do all within its power to deliver the goodies.
The Ibagun Progressives led by its chairman, Alhaji Kuranga, described Ajape’s appointment as well deserved, assuring the state government of the support of Ibagun community at all times.
