Dapo Abiodun in his statement released today as thus: 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.
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.
