Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Saturday visited the site of the industrial park, which is under massive construction at Eiyenkorin in Asa Local Government.
The first phase of the industrial park comprises a perimeter fence, lay-by, concrete pavement (concrete road and drainage, and car park), and accessories for power supply.
When completed, the park will occupy 196 hectares of land, and would comprise residential buildings, facility manager’s house, wood processing section, commercial section, agroprocessing section, metal and minerals processing, and green area.
Phase one of the park is one of the projects being funded with the bond the state government recently accessed.
It is meant to expand the industrial base of Kwara State, with impacts on employment generation and wealth creation, among other benefits.
