He said: “The state of our roads (in Kwara) is disappointing. This is particularly true of Kwara North.

“There is no road, for instance, to Gwanara especially now that it is raining and yet the contractor handling it is collecting money. That was why the previous administration was stoned (in Gwanara). We don’t want to be stoned."

He said the contractors would only be asked to go if they failed to deliver on the administration’s development agenda and timeline.

“Kwara people have woken up and if I don’t fix the road, they will protest. So, we will sit with the contractors. We are not sacking or removing them. We want to be proactive so they can do their job.

AbdulRazaq also directed the Ministry of Works “to compile the list of roads that are in bad state so that the government could work out funding options for their rehabilitation.”
