Federal Government on Wednesday handed over 36 rooms constructed at Internally Displaced persons (lDPs) centre in Patigi, headquarters of the Patigi Local Government Area of Kwara to Kwara Government.

He advised the state government and the Patigi Local Government Council to make judicious use of the 36 rooms for the wellbeing of residents in the area.
The Secretary, Office of the State Emergency and Relief Service, Mrs Adaran Mutuinrayo, appreciated the gesture and praised Federal Government for the project.
