The Kwara State Government has released the sum of N288.5million as 2018 first quarter allocation to state-owned tertiary institutions.

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed gave the approval for the release of the funds on Wednesday, 17 December, 2018, according to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Dr. Muyideen Akorede.
