The Ogun State Executive Council at its last meeting approved the construction of four roads in Ogun West and East Senatorial District of the state.
These are the Oke Ola Road in Imeko, Imeko-Afon Local Government Area, and the Ibooro/Imasayi-Igan Okoto-Ayetoro Road, both in Ogun West Senatorial District. Others are Molusi College Road in Ijebu-Igbo as well as Igan Road in Ago Iwoye, Ogun East.
In their decision, the Executives were guided by the viability and condition of the roads, as well as the socio-economic effects of the deplorable condition of the roads.
It would be recalled, as a particular instance, that the Ibooro/Imasayi-Igan Okoto-Ayetoro Road had been left unattended to for over 25 years.
However, the road construction approved by the Council covers 21km (length), to be done in 3 phases of 7km each.
The approval for the four roads resounds the commitment of the Administration of Prince Dapo Abiodun, MFR to the even and continuous development of road infrastructure across the State, in addition to the many road projects being carried out in each of the three Senatorial Districts.
