I want to commend the Oyo State governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, for the wonderful work he is doing in the area of rehabilitation and construction of roads. Even, the governor’s critics acknowledge he has really performed well. As a result of his good performance, I want to draw his attention to the expressway that was being constructed by the previous government of Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala.
The expressway is from New Garage-Orita Challenge to Apata. However, the former government could not complete the road before it lost the 2011 election. I must say that the road is almost 90 per cent completed, but there are certain sections at Kuola and Jankarta areas at Apata, which the road runs through, that have not been completed.
The incomplete section terminates at Olakunle Junction, on the road linking Apata–Aba Alamu-Elere road. Many people in this area now use this road to link areas like Ring Road, Challenge, Odo Ona Elewe, and so on. I believe Senator Ajimobi is a man after perfection.
I hope he can complete this road for the benefit of the people in these areas, and not think the project was started by his predecessor. At least, the governor has also completed landmark projects that future governors will struggle to match.
