Date: 2024-04-12

Governor AbdulRahman Abdulraaq has expressed support for the 700km Lagos-Calabar Coastal Highway, describing it as a huge project that will have a significant impact on the nation when completed.

AbdulRazaq spoke today in Lagos during a visit by governors and the leadership of the National Assembly to President Tinubu, in commemoration of Eid-el- Fitri.

Led by Vice-President Kashim Shettima, the delegation included Senate President Godswill Akpabio; the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas. AbdulRazaq, Governor of Kwara State is the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum.

He commended the President's efforts in stabilizing the economy and improving living conditions, highlighting the positive developments in the country, which include the stabilization of the exchange rate and decreasing food prices.

He attributed these improvements to the President's initiatives and also lauded the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare's funding for 8,800 primary healthcare centres.

"We commend your efforts because the ship is gradually turning. We have seen how the exchange rate of the naira against the dollar is coming down. The cost of food is coming down. The dry season harvest is commencing soon. Things are getting better, and there is light at the end of the tunnel," the Governor said.

He urged President Tinubu to persevere in his efforts towards achieving economic stability.

The Governor also expressed gratitude for the support provided by the Federal Government to states, particularly in distributing grains to alleviate food shortages.

''We are here to support you, and we also thank you for the support that you are giving to the sub-nationals. Trucks are wheeling up across the nation, distributing grains. I have received, and most of the states have.

''Because of what you are doing, those who are hoarding food items are releasing them, and that is why the prices of food are coming down,'' he said.

Governor AbdulRazaq reiterated the governors' commitment to supporting the President's initiatives and pledged to continue complementing the efforts of the federal government in driving progress and prosperity across the nation.
