The Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq Campaign Organization (AACO) has alleged Kwara State government led by Governor AbdulFatah Ahmed of mismanaging Infrastructure Development Fund (IFK)
The campaign organization of APC governorship candidate in Kwara State, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq via a statement issued on Friday by its Director, Media and Publicity, Abdulrasheed Akogun, has alleged the state government ” is not prudent and transparent in managing IF-K funds accrued within the last 28months”.
Akogun stated that kwarans are still waiting to enjoy infrastructures promised by the PDP government in the state.
While explaining further, he described IF-K as a good and futuristic policy with bad implementation strategies but queried the need for quarterly disbursement of the fund to contractors when KW-IRS usually remits N500million to IF-K account monthly.
The statement read “Although, Kwara state government has completed some abandoned projects with IF-K fund in the last two years but the policy implementation lacks transparency. The number of road projects executed under the fund does not commensurate with amount disbursed.
”Some of the roads like Erinle road, Coca-cola road, Airport/Egbejila road and Gaa-Akanbi to Agbabiaka road being funded through IF-K have being abandoned since 2017 September.
”Likewise the pace of work on Geri Alimi Diamond Underpass, Sango to UITH Dualization, Solar Farm Tunnels, KWASU extension in Ilesa Baruba and Osi is witnessing snail-like execution despite Kwara State government claim of releasing fund timely to contractors.
“We have it on good authority that the outgoing Abdulfatah Ahmed led PDP government has criminally dipped its hands in the IFK funds to finance its candidates for the polls.
”Kwarans are not getting value for their taxes. We therefore challenge the state government to publish project by project financial breakdown of IF-K funded roads.”
Meanwhile, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq Campaign organization urged the electorates not to fall for bogus promises of party that has track records of failing to fulfil promises as we approach general election.
