By Sikirat Shehu, Ilorin

The Kwara State House of Assembly has stopped the construction of new petrol stations in the state capital.

The Speaker, Dr. Ali Ahmad, who gave the directive suspending the project, said the adhoc committee constituted to investigate the matter discovered that laws guiding the establishment of petrol stations are being violated.

He said the Assembly will not fold its arms and watch the lives and property of people being threatened by a few individuals ‘‘who are selfish and desperate to make money’’.
