Abiodun Inspects road projects, harps on people’s demand

By Elijah Udofia

The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has assured the people that spate of developmental projects springing up would get to every part of the State in line with the inclusive approach of his administration.

Governor Abiodun who spoke after inspecting the ongoing reconstruction of Igan-Imere road in Ago-Iwoye, Ijebu North Local Government Area, said the choice of the road was chosen by the people, who see it as a priority.

He said the 1.8 kilometres road awarded to a local contractor from the area, was to ensure that the benefits trickled down to the immediate neighbourhood, as it engages youths during the construction.

“In line with our approach to governance and for rapid infrastructural development which is determined by those who elected us into office, this Igan road was chosen by the good people of Ago–Iwoye. We did not sit in Abeokuta and decide which road to construct for them, the people decided that this road is of priority to them”, the Governor said.

Abiodun noted that half of the road had been laid with asphalt and provided with drainage system, saying street lights would be installed to complement other facilities on the road.

Governor Abiodun who was also in Oru, said the seven kilometres Oru-Awa-Ilaporu bypass road was the second to be reconstructed in Ijebu North Local Government Area.

“Those coming from Ijebu-Ode to Ijebu-Igbo, don’t need to go through Ijebu-Ode-Ibadan road before getting to Ijebu-Igbo, so it allows you to cut through from Oru, Awa and Ilaporu”, he said.
