Kwara State Government has cordoned off the Flower Garden in the capital city Ilorin as part of its efforts to make the place a go-to beautiful recreation centre for people of the state.
Commissioner for Environment, Mrs. Remilekun Banigbe, said in a statement on Thursday that the project will give a facelift to the garden as a green area for relaxation and healthy social interaction.
“The will further beautify the State, generate revenues for the government, and promote work-life balance for the citizenry who can visit the garden for leisure purposes,” she said.
Banigbe said the Flower Garden landscaping and beautification is another effort of the AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq administration to reposition Kwara as one of the States that prioritise work-life balance and social needs of its people.
The garden, which had long been a shadow of itself, will be revamped for the benefit of the good people of Kwara state, Banigbe added, saying it will create new jobs and serve as an attraction site for economic development of the society.
She said a section of the garden has also been designed to house a Book Club for children, thereby promoting reading culture among younger people in the state.
She commended the Governor for the huge investment in provision of social amenities, infrastructures and other laudable programmes that have impacted the lives of Kwarans.
