Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola on Thursday, reiterated his administration’s commitment to unleashing road construction in the state for its socio-economic transformation.
Speaking at the commissioning of the 13.15km Ada-Igbajo road, Oyetola said the newly reconstructed road was a fulfillment of another campaign promise.
It would be recalled that Oyetola in his inaugural address declared that his administration recognizes the importance of intra and inter-city roads to facilitate the movement of goods and people, and will continue to muster resources to build strategic roads across the State.
The Ada-Igbajo road was part of the 54.3km span of township roads across the three Senatorial Districts of the state that Oyetola approved for construction, reconstruction or rehabilitation, after about three decades of their last reconstruction or actual construction.
Other township roads include: Akindeko-Awosuru link road, via Adejumo street, with a spur to Oremeji, Akinlade Street, Adewale Street, with a loop to WAEC road; rehabilitation/complete overlay of 25.8km Army Barrack (Ede)-Ara-Ejigbo township road; rehabilitation and complete overlay of 8.10km Moro-Yakoyo-Ipetumodu-Asipa-Ife/Ibadan Expressway Junction road; and rehabilitation/complete overlay of 4.38km Ereja Roundabout-Ereguru-Isaare-Oke Oye-Sabo (Irojo)-Ilesa/Akure Expressway Junction.
Oyetola said his administration is irrevocably resolved to engage in meaningful infrastructure and economic endeavours to achieve economic transformation and equitable development of major towns and villages in Osun.
He urged residents and indigenes of the community to take advantage of the road to improve on meaningful agricultural, trading and entrepreneurial efforts for personal and socio-economic development.
