THE residents of Oyo town in Oyo state have commended Governor Abiola Ajimobi and Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo for ensuring that work resumes on the road construction projects.
Some members of the town on Friday thanked the two personalities, saying that it came as a relief, particularly when they had thought that the contractor had abandoned the site.
They added that when completed, the road will help stimulate the economy of the ancient town.
“The people of this area are already sighing a relief with the commencement of work. We are happy and also thanked the governor for the good job”.
The dualization of Owode-Afin road (2.6km) and Owode-Iseyin junction road at Ojongbondu ( 4km) was awarded during the governor’s first term but work stopped for close to 2 years, while other road projects that were awarded the same time, were completed.
Prominent indigenes of the town, alongside Archbishop Ayo Ladigbolu made moves to get it done. It would be recalled that during the 6th year anniversary of Governor Ajimobi, the Alaafin of Oyo, in an advertorial, hailed the governor for what he has done in the state, saying that he would move from excellence to distinction when he completes the Oyo road projects.
Within two weeks, sources informed that the governor who had earlier re-awarded the contract, mobilised the new contractor – Still Earth Construction and Realties to site.
Visit to the site revealed that the contractor has started the asphaltic laying of the ‘binding course’ from Isokun to Ojongbodu end of the road. Also, one of the site engineers told Mega Icon Magazine that the ‘wearing course’, together with the street lights, will be laid and installed on the two road projects.
