Dapo Abiodun Embarks On Road Inspection Across Abeokuta, Promises More Road Construction Across The State(Photos)
The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has said that his administration would continue to give infrastructure, especially road, the right attention in order to open up the State for more economic development.
Prince Abiodun, who stated this after inspecting the Oba Erinwole Road in Sagamu, Kuto Flyover, Elite and Fajol-Osara-Gbonagun roads in Abeokuta, said the issue of the good road network in the State could not be overemphasised as it open up the State to socioeconomic activities.
According to the Governor, the Oba Erinwole Road which is an important road, had been in a deplorable condition for a long time despite that it serves several industries and also links the Sagamu-Ore-Benin Expressway.
“I came to see the level of work done on this Oba Erinwole Road. This road is very important as it leads to many factories and industries. We awarded the contract for this road in March this year. If not for the pandemic, work would have gone far by now. When it is completed, it will alleviate the suffering of the people,” he noted.
He said the Kuto flyover and its service lanes, though awarded by the last administration, would be completed soon, as he has extracted commitment from the contractor.
The Governor noted that most of the road projects executed by his Administration were prioritised by the Local Governments, adding that the 7.1km Fajol-Osara-Gbonagun Road was an inter-local government road that would link Abeokuta South and Odeda Local Government Areas, as well as act as a bypass to the Abeokuta-Ibadan Road.
While informing that road construction was also ongoing at Ipokia and Imeko, Prince Abiodun added that construction work would soon commence on Gbenro-Isashi-Akute Road.
He said the desire of his administration was to ensure that the people are able to traverse the length and breadth of the State with ease, saying that work so far done was “a tip of the iceberg.”
Addressing the Governor, the former Senator representing Ogun West Senatorial District, Senator Gbenga Obadara and APC Chairman in the State, Chief Yemi Sanusi appreciated the Governor for keeping to his promise, adding that the projects would go a long way in enabling the people to achieve their aspirations.
The Leader of Fajol Community, Alhaji Kafidipe said the Fajol-Osara-Gbonagun Road had been in a deplorable condition for more than 30 years, appreciating the Governor for keeping to the promise he made during the election campaign.
