Ahmed Lays Foundation for N1.1 Billion State Secretariat

Date: 2017-08-08

Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed yesterday flagged off of the construction of a N1.1 billion new secretariat for civil servants.

Speaking on the occasion, the governor said the new secretariat became necessary as office accommodation had become insufficient to cater for increasing workforce in the state civil service. He said the project was being funded through the State Infrastructural Development Fund (IFK) which pools funds for critical projects.

"The new secretariat complex was recommended by the need to open a new vista of modernized and motivated civil service in Kwara State. My government is aware that our ministries, department and agencies have had to cope with acute shortage of office accommodation," he said, explaining that the government was funding several critical projects through the funding window of IFK, including the Geri Alimi Diamond Underpass, the dualisation of Kulende-UITH Road and Kwara State University campuses at Ekiti and Ilesha Baruba.

The Governor said no state could achieve real development without targeted infrastructure, especially those that enhance human capital development, stating that his administration had succeeded in maintaining the delicate balance between infrastructure development and workers' welfare.

Earlier, the Head of Service, Mrs Zahra Omar, thanked the governor for embarking on the project amidst competing needs.
