"We, here, in Kwara state can testify to the dualisation of the strategic Ilorin – Jebba- Mokwa road which was only at 15.9% completion by the time the administration assumed office but today the road that links the South West to the North West is 100% completed and it is now easy for trucks moving agricultural products to ply that route."
The senatorial candidate further revealed that President Buhari's administration has also fostered a series of agricultural reforms and innovations in the state while making reference to the National Social Investment Programmes (N-SIPs).
“Under the programme launched by President Buhari in November 2015, more than N1 trillion has been disbursed to over 4.8 million smallholder farmers of 21 different commodities across the country including in Kwara state to cultivate over 4m hectares of farmland.
“Our state is similarly benefitting from the Federal government's Special Agro-industrial Processing Zone (SAPZ) partnership with the African Development Bank through which agro processing centres are to be established with basic infrastructure such as water, electricity and roads as well as facilities for skills training in 7 states."
