The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has assured users of the Abeokuta-Lagos Road that it would be renovated in 2024.
He gave this assurance on Tuesday while inaugurating the Itori Township Road in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.
Abiodun noted that agreement would soon be reached with the Federal Government to reconstruct the road
He declared that his administration would fix major roads that are in deplorable condition.
The governor said, “The reconstruction of the road was in fulfillment of the promise made during the 2019 campaign. The essence of government is to serve the people.
“My administration remained the first to ensure equal distribution of projects to all parts of the state, No local government has been left out in project execution.”
He assured the people that his administration would soon commence the construction of affordable houses in Itori, the headquarters of Ewekoro Local Government.
According to him, previous efforts made by his administration were not successful as the FG insisted that the road was under a contract.
Addressing party faithful and people at the campaign rally in Papalanto, Abiodun, promised that the old Ilaro road in the town would soon be reconstructed, while more blocks of classrooms and the renovation of the old structures would be carried out in Papalanto High School.
The governor, while acknowledging the importance of good roads in the socio-economic development of any society, noted that the road when rebuilt would further boost the economic activities in the area.
He, however, urged the people to collect their Permanent Voter’s Cards to enable them to participate in the forthcoming general elections.
In his remarks, the Olu of Itori, Oba Fatai Akamo, said the road has been in a deplorable condition for as long as previous governments did not pay attention to it.
