The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Wednesday, continued his campaign for second term with the inauguration of the five kilometres Somorin-Kemta-Idi-Aba road in Odeda Local Government Area of the State

Speaking at Kemta, Abeokuta, venue of the event, the governor noted that the huge infrastructural gap inherited by his administration informed adoption of a strategic approach that would ensure every part of the state benefit from one project or the other.

He said Kemta, apart from benefiting from the road, also has the first housing estate built by his administration sited in the axis, saying with these projects, the area would witness an upsurge in commercial activities.

 Abiodun who regarded Odeda LG as one of the important local government areas in the state, said the council has two road projects just as almost all the projects executed are people-oriented and are in line with the I.S.E.Y.A a

Agenda of his government.

“We’ve demonstrated that we are a promise-keeping administration, we have a road project, at least one in every local government, but this local government has two. We have the Gbonagun-FAJOL Road which is about seven kilometers and we have this road, and that is just a clear example that if we make these promises and we have come to commission these roads, then you can expect that we will continue in the same vein and keep our promises.

“I want to plead with you that if you are happy with what you are seeing, please endeavour to go out and collect your PVCs, because it is through your PVCs that you will vote for a continuity of the good works of this administration that you voted in 2019 and that you will vote again in 2023”, he stated.

While commending the traditional rulers in Odeda LG for maintaining peace in their domains, the governor promised that his administration would not stop until all access roads are put in good condition, calling on the people to vote for him to continue his good works.

Earlier, the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Akin Adesanya, said the road is one of the various projects executed across the state, adding that the 5.1km road, provided with adequate drainage system, would solve the perennial flooding that had affected the area for long

The Olu of Kemta, Oba Okikiola Tejuosho, said the bad condition of the road affected the economic activities of the people as many man hours were lost in the process of manuvering the bad potions that littered the road, adding that more than 40 communities are also benefiting from the road.

At Bode Olude, the governor announced that the Elega-Bode Olude road would be constructed within a week, while a transformer and borehole would also be constructed to provide potable water to the people of the area.

He apologized to the people for the deplorable condition of the road, which he noted, had caused untold hardship to the people, pleading for their understanding as four years would  not be enough to address the infrastructural deficit inherited by his administration.

“When I was coming here this morning, I see that your road is very bad and I was told that you don’t have water. I have directed that a brand new electric transformer be brought to this area. Also, within one week, we will start the construction of the Elega-Bode Olude road.

“Apart from that, we are going to sink a borehole that would serve this area with potable water. Please keep supporting us to do more for you”, the governor submitted.
