AbdulRazaq said this would be done in collaboration with the Federal Government to boost economic activities at the corridor. 

"Our administration is ready to partner with the Nigeria Immigration Service and other relevant bodies to strengthen security in the state, particularly in the western borders with Benin Republic," AbdulRazaq said during a meeting the Comptroller of Immigration Service, Kwara State Command, Mrs Edith Onyemenam, at the Government House, in Ilorin.

He promised to provide critical infrastructure in Kwara North Senatorial District and other parts of the state with a view to promoting business activities and improving the living standard of the people of the area. 

He sought the support of the Nigeria Immigration Service and other sister security agencies to tackle the challenge of porous borders and strengthen security in the state.  

AbdulRazaq thanked officers of the Service for their selfless service to the country, promising to support them in carrying out their mandates in the state.
