It is naturally expected that the good people of Ogun State will be patient with us, as our Administration fixes all roads in due time. The executive governor of Ogun state Prince Dr. Dapo Abiodun on Wednesday, 15th July, stated this during the inspection of road constructions on going at Ijebu Ode-Epe Expressway.
Dapo pledge his commitment to the people of the state in developing the infrastructures and embarking on my projects that will affect the people positively.
He said “I stated this today when I inspected the progress of work done on the reconstruction of the 14.5km Ijebu Ode-Epe Expressway, one of the many road projects we have undertaken in the one year and a month of our time in office.
“At the flag off in February, I had stated that the Expressway project would be completed early 2021, but by reason of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will now be commissioned by this time next year.
“During today’s inspection, I mentioned that we did not create this problem of bad roads. We met it here. However, we have so far completed over 20km of the record 80km of roads we have been working on for the past one year. The roads are there for all to see.
“Currently, we are prioritising critical roads such as the Ota-Akute and Ishashi-Ojodu-Akute/Journalists Roads, whose projects are in their 2nd phases which would start soon.
“Having first the interest of the good people of Ogun State at heart, I want to reassure everyone that one after the other, all our roads will be worked on, and we will not leave anyone abandoned.
“I share the pain of the people, so rest assured, the situation is under control”.
This road has been causing a lot of hardship to the people of the state including travellers who ply the road to other states. The rehabilitation of the road is a goodnews to users and motorists at large.
