According to him, “as part of our mandate to alleviate poverty among the vulnerable people in the state, we have introduced ‘Public Workfare programme’ by engaging people that will be deployed to areas within the state capital for cleaning.

“We will also clear dump sites, bushes to ensure that the state is always clean.

“We are starting in the state capital for now with cleaning and maintaining the grasses along the road.”

The deployment is in areas such as Ahmadu Bello way, Tanke Junction, Fate Roundabout, Airport Road, Irewolede and Adewole roundabout in the first phase.

He said that the scope of the assignment would keep increasing as the need arises.

He explained that KWASSIP is an initiative of the administration of Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to support the vulnerable poor and improve the economy and human capital development index in the state.
