The Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Tuesday, commissioned a 6km road in the state capital, Akure. The road was said to have been abandoned for the past 23 years until the intervention of the government.
In a statement issued via Akeredolu’s twitter account, he said, “Morning @TayoJegedeSAN. I hope you like the new road I built in your neighbourhood totalling about 6km. It was neglected for over 20 years. Now You’ll have less vehicle issues when you start your campaign fully. #DevelopOndo #IbiGiga”
The governor also wrote about his 3 years in office with the already completed 120km road to his credit. He wrote, “A drop in the bucket in the quantum of road development work completed (120km) and ongoing (129km) in 3yrs with meager funds. We are proud of our achievements to date. #developondo.”
It is gathered that the road connects 17 streets and links Alagabaka to the federal secretariat. The road also leads to the houses of the former governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Eyitayo Jegede; former Commissioner for Urban Planning, Prince Solagbade Amodeni and others.
The 6km road is also a network of strategic and peculiar roads in the Alagbaka GRA area of Akure.
