Worried by the negative impact of dilapidation of roads on property along prime areas of Ogun State, the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has ordered the contractor handling the reconstruction on Oba Erinwole road in Sagamu to ensure its completion in the next two weeks.
Governor Abiodun, who gave the order while inspecting the ongoing project, expressed dissatisfaction with the slow pace of work, directed the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Akin Adesanya to make sure that the job Is delivered at the said timeline.
He said, “This part of the town is one of the prime areas and the value of property has begun to depreciate due to the condition of the road.
“So, we decided to intervene particularly for the convenience of our people living here and the socio-economic development of the town itself”, he noted.
According to him, the initial contract was to repair the fell sections which was the lowest part of the road, adding that the need to repair the entire stretch from Sagamu-Benin Expressway to Ikorodu junction had become necessary for the road to be completely done.
The project, he asserted , was in line with his administration’s transformation infrastructural development across the State, saying, “we are also doing similar projects in 18 Local Government Areas. This is not an exception, it has become a norm that characterised ‘Building our Future Together’ agenda”.
