The Chairman House Committee on Health in the Oyo State House of Assembly, Honourable Saminu Riliwan Gbadamosi has appealed to the state governor, Engr Seyi Makinde to as a matter of urgency rehabilitate the Moniya/Iseyin road linking Saki and other parts of Oke Ogun region in order to make the road safe and motorable for the people.
According to him, the deplorable condition of the road has made it very dangerous for people to ply especially those travel along the road for business transactions as hoodlums hide at very terrible parts of the road to carry out their nefarious activities.
The legislator who represents Saki East/Atisbo said it was high time the state government rose to find a lasting solution to the problem in addressing the issue.
“The road in question is a disaster, i want the state government to declare state of emergency on the road and as well take drastic measures in ameliorating the problem.”
“I appeal to governor Makinde to save the people of Oke Ogun area especially those who travel through the road on business purposes from incessant attack from hoodlums by putting the road in good shape. Many of our people have been victim of attack as a result of the bad road.”
Hon Gbadamosi observed that if government did not intervene on the issue with urgency, it may affect transportation of food from Oke Ogun to other parts of the state since the region is the food basket of the state.
He commended Engr Makinde for his laudable policies and strides since he assumed office as governor.
Speaking on the not too young to run policy of the federal government, Hon. Gbadamosi described it as welcome development adding that it has brought many young people into political office.
