Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has said public welfare in the form of continuous cash awards to workers and other palliatives and support for different segments of the state remains a top priority for the government, acknowledging the impact of inflation on the living standard of the people.
In a statement on Sunday by the Commissioner for Communications, Bola Olukoju, the Governor said the administration has consistently supported and will continue to support the people as inflation erodes purchasing power across the world.
AbdulRazaq was speaking during a cabinet meeting on Friday evening during which the state executive council approved inflation-induced upward reviews of contract sums for some road projects across the state, including the Banni township road (Kaiama); Ora township road (Ifelodun); Saint Claire’s Junction-Ikotun Road, Offa; Secretriat Road-New Market Road Lafiagi; and Igbaja Town Hall Road.
That comes as the state government again begins (from yesterday) fresh distribution of rice worth N2bn to the people through different clerics (Muslims and Christians), community-based groups, and other stakeholders across the state, while different agricultural initiatives are at work to achieve sustainable food security.
