According to him, the rise is a tribute to the efforts of the administration to bring inclusive growth to Kwara State and make life more worth living for the people.

He spoke in Ilorin, the state capital, at the Annual General Meeting and commissioning of the secretariat of the Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria (MAN) whose resilience the Governor commended.

Governor AbdulRazaq said” the growth in the number of functional firms has positive impacts on the standards of living of the people of the state.”

“The government has curbed double and digitized many of its processes to improve land administration and other business transactions with positive outcomes for industrial growth in the state,” Governor AbdulRazaq said.

He said; “From just 41 firms in 2019 to 77 in 2022, the percentage of functional companies in Kwara has grown by at least 87.8% over the last three years.

“From just four skeletal flights in 2019, we now have some 12 flights every day to and from the state capital, Ilorin. Notwithstanding the national economic challenges, I’m impressed by the resilience and consistent growth of the Kwara economy.

“As of July 19, 2022, we had just 15 C of O waiting for printing, with just 46 R of O and 15 Assignments also awaiting printing. Otherwise, we have ensured that the government’s processes are done expeditiously. We are similarly working on other proposals to improve the business climate in Kwara.”

Governor AbdulRazaq said the rising inflation and security challenges in the country are surmountable with everybody playing their best roles, reiterating his administration’s resolve to continue to assist the business community in the State.
