AbdulRazaq approves N350m for completion of Secretariat Complex


Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has approved immediate release of N350m for the completion of the New Kwara State Secretariat Complex in Ilorin.

AbdulRazaq approved the fund after securing a discount of N50m from the contractors who were being owed N515m out of the N1.38bn total contract sums.

The contract had been awarded by the administration of former Governor Abdulfatai Ahmed.

“Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq felt a need to urgently complete the project for the use of civil servants even as he pushed for heavy discount from the contractors,” according to a statement by Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.

“As a result, the Governor has approved the release of N350m with which the contractors will finish the work. They will receive N81m after the work is satisfactorily done. That would leave them with the (third payment) retention fee of N34m after six months.”

Architect Makanjuola Kayode, the lead consultant for the project, said the four-block secretariat complex will be ready by August 30.

Each of the blocks has 76 office spaces.
