CITIZENS COMPASS – THE Acting Vice-Chancellor of Kwara State University, Malete, Professor Shaykh-Luqman Jimoh, has commended Kwara State Government for fixing the collapsed culvert linking Shao to Malete in the Moro Local Government Area of the state. 

He described the swift deployment of repair materials and personnel to the site as restating the commitment of the state government to the institution and the people of the area.

Professor Jimoh in a statement signed on Sunday, July 23, 2023, by Dr. Saeedat Aliyu, Ag. Director, University Relations said the state Ministry of Works and Transport was at the portion of the road a few hours after the collaspe was reported, while efforts to provide commuters with access to the road commenced a few hours later.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor lauded Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for the timely action which had affected vehicular movement to and fro the state capital to that part of the state, adding that the road was pivotal to not only the members of the KWASU Community but the many agrarian communities in the area.

Professor Jimoh, who urged the government to continue to bring the dividends of  democracy to the people at the grassroots, stressed that such responses would facilitate faster development to the rural areas of the state.

It would be recalled that a culvert between Shao and Malete road collasped after the heavy rains of Tuesday, July 18, 2023.

The Kwara State Ministry of Works and Transport inspected this failed portion of the road immediately it was reported while immediate steps were taken to provide a temporary access road to commuters on the busy route, pending the construction of a new bridge.
