Earlier today ( Thursday) , I met with the Minister of State for Petroleum, Timipre Sylva, in Abuja and we discussed various ways Kwara State can collaborate with the Ministry for the good of our state and our people.
Among the things we discussed is the ongoing preparation for seismic data acquisition in Edu and Pategi parts of Kwara state. It is an extension of similar preparatory works in the neighbouring Niger State.
We also talked about our request for the NNPC to support the construction of science laboratory for the Kwara State University (KWASU), expansion of the Oke Oyi LPG depot; and the construction of the Ibadan-Ilorin-Jebba gas pipeline, which would enable easy supply of gas and constant alternate power supply to companies in our state.
That, on its own, will lessen the load on the national grid, increase power supply, attract more firms, and encourage more investments and job creation in the state.
