Most times I have met people who feel I do not love to mind my business as a writer, I love kwara state and Any ways I would love to say anything that affect the freedom of the society is my business. Those are fraudulent road construction done daily,monthly, yearly ,etc.

My ultimate work should be to make it obvious, so that it can be handled and worked on.

I have being privileged to reside in kwara state for few years and I have noticed how they do their thing; which of course should have not being any of my mutual business if it was not having a negative impact on the lives of people occupying the state .

I will be discussing five fraudulent road construction which I happened to have noticed were constructed in kwara state.


The round about that leads to maraba area of kwara state, Agric to be precise ‘Government day secondary school.

This road was conducted around 2008, as of then I happened to be my mid year of secondary school, a lot of people had brutal accident during the period at which that road was constructed.
I remembered vividly the part leading to fate tanke was really a confused place to drive through if the drive is not a very cautious person.
That is not enough, if we need to discuss about the terrible flood that always make a mess of this area , it is something kwara state government should be ashamed of , but they took pride in it.

It is nine years now and nothing has being done to remmendize the road .
I guess the government is waiting till the day a great flood destroys half of the lives occupying that area .

I am very certain billion of naria was filed out of kwara state budget to construct that road.

2. Geri Alimi.

I guess it was the anger I felt when I was driving across this road few days ago that brought about this article .
I’m not saying kwara state government should not employ Nigeria engineers to construct roads but my problem is how much do they pay them? Most of kwara state road end up being destroyed after what the government calls reconstruction.

Geri Alimi road has being in mess for months now and I hope the government do some fast and critical thing about it.
Raining seasonal is here, the road is getting worse by the day. Journey which used to be few munites before is now hours, all in the name of reconstructing the road!!.
Check out how many hours it takes to drive through Geri Alimi to odo_ota since the reconstruction began.

3. The university of Ilorin park.

The construction started during the long term holiday, if I’m not being too accurate.
I remember the park was reconstructed for about a whole sesmeter and of which I excluded the period which we were on holiday from.
Few months later, I noticed the top soil of the park’s ground were being washed away . Then we got a noticed that the park needed a review, the review was done but to be sincere I need good engineers to come check that park out and give their view to the government.
It is a total crap!

4.Tanke Reservoir Street.

This street seems to have high number of elite occupying the area, let me be blunt here, what I mean by higher number of elite occupying this area is higher number of politicians in kwara state. Well the sneaky sneaky ones to be precise .

The road has being reconstructed so many times but yet it is still very terrible to drive through talk more of walking through it.

5.Gaa_kanbi Round about.

I have driven across this path on several occasions and I feel nothing but ashamed for kwara state government. Imagine a round about which leads to different route is so terrible that drivers need to be so extraordinarily careful to avoid any form of accident.

The most annoying path is the route leading to Agbabiaka, this road can almost not permit two cars moving to and fro at the same point and this is a major road in that area.
People around the area claimed that the government has fixed this road on several occasions and yet it is still as terrible as it is.

We have not gone half round kwara state and we have this to point to the government; imagine if we were to go the extreme .
