Kishi-Kaiama road project not abandoned – Commissioner for Works and Transport kwara state, Alhaji Aro Yahaya says

Kwara state’s Commissioner for
Works and Transport, Alhaji Aro Yahaya has disclosed that the 
government has not abandoned the construction of the Kishi-Kaiama road.
Yahaya made this known in Ilorin while speaking at the Media Parliament organised by the State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ).

He
explained that though the road is a federal government facility, the
state government intervened on the road due to its importance and to
reduce the hardship faced by road users who ply the route.
The
Commissioner recalled that the state government awarded the
construction of the 64km road project in 2014 and mobilised the
contractor with N500million.
He, however,
noted that the Federal Government recently took over the funding of the
project and approved the sum of N7.2 billion as reimbursement to the
state government for its construction.
According
to him, the Federal Ministry of Works, Power and Housing had earlier
released the sum of N238m to the state government and another N50m is
being expected from the Ministry.
The
Commissioner said he met with the contractor handling the project, who
complained that the fund from the Federal Ministry of Works is not
enough to cover a substantial part of the project and he does not want a
situation where he resumes work on the site and leaves again after a
month due to shortage of fund.
Yahaya
added that the state government is currently in talks with officials of
the Ministry, who had pledged to release additional payment to the state
within the next few weeks.
He assured that the contractor would move back to the project site as soon as the fund is released by the Ministry.
The
Commissioner, therefore, emphasized that the project had not been
abandoned and that the state government is committed towards its
completion.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
