Title:Transportation development in Kwara State of Nigeria, 1967-1979
Author:Agboola, C.O.ISNI
Periodical:The Nigerian Journal of Economic History
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:road construction
Abstract:With the creation of Kwara State (Nigeria) in 1967 and its takeoff in 1968, the administration embarked on the development of the state in various spheres, including that of transportation. Elaborate schemes were proposed with a view to improving the poor and deficient transport infrastructure. However, their physical implementation over the period 1968-1979 was poor. This has been attributed to a shortage of competent indigenous constructors, a shortage of skilled personnel in some key areas of the state civil service, inadequate funds and deficient planning strategy.
