Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq at the weekend assured that his government will jumpstart the state economy and its tourism sector with infrastructure, especially roads and other basic amenities.

Speaking at the annual Ganni Festival in Gwanara, Baruten Council Area of the state, AbdulRazaq said his administration plans to boost tourism as a revenue earner for Kwara.

“We want to put our various festivals and tourist centres in the national tourism calendar. We will push the agenda to the Tourism Board in Abuja so that will attract tourists to our state.”

“But we need to also develop ourselves because people will not come when there are no hotels and good roads which can make it difficult for tourists to come and witness the exposition of our culture. Lack of basic infrastructure will be a thing of the past,” he said.
