The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has announced that the Abeokuta-Lagos road would be renovated in 2024.
The PUNCH reported that he gave this assurance on Tuesday while inaugurating the Itori Township Road in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state, stating that an agreement would soon be reached with the federal government to reconstruct the road.
The governor declared that his administration remained the first to ensure equal distribution of projects to all parts of the state.
He said, “The reconstruction of the road was in fulfillment of the promise made during the 2019 campaign. The essence of government is to serve the people.
“My administration remained the first to ensure equal distribution of projects to all parts of the state, No local government has been left out in project execution.”
Abiodun assured the people that his administration would soon commence the construction of affordable houses in Itori, the headquarters of Ewekoro Local Government, while explaining that previous efforts made by his administration were not successful as the FG insisted that the road was under a contract.
Addressing party faithful at the Papalanto rally, Abiodun, promised that the old Ilaro road in the town would soon be reconstructed, while more blocks of classrooms and the renovation of the old structures would be carried out in Papalanto High School.
