Reconstruction work to begin on Papalanto-Ilaro-Sagamu Interchange soon - Abiodun

The Ogun State governor,  Dapo Abiodun has disclosed that his administration had reached  advanced stage of discussion with the Federal Government for the reconstruction work on the Papalanto-Ilaro-Sagamu Interchange Road.

This is just as he said that the ongoing construction work on the Ilaro-Owode Road was deliberately broken into sections in order to speed up the rehabilitation of the road.

Abiodun made this known over the weekend while speaking at the 11th Synod of the Diocese of Yewa, Anglican Communion, Ilaro.

The Governor at the Synod with the theme, "But, They That Wait Upon The Lord", declared that "there is probably no local government in Ogun West where construction is currently not going on". 

"There is no local government in Yewaland that we are not constructing roads. Here, in Ilaro, we are doing the Ilaro-Owode Road, that project has been slower than we anticipated and I have since intervened. I have decided to break that project into two and leave part of it with the existing contractor, and bring in a new contractor to speed up the construction of that road.

"I have started discussions on the commencement of the Papalanto-Ilaro-Sagamu Interchange Road, our discussion is at conclusive stages. So, very soon, you will see mobilization to site for the construction of that road. That road is a very critical one for our East to West connection," he said.

The governor, who also disclosed that his administration would be inaugurating the Imasayi Road in Yewa North Local Government later in the month, also added that roads in Imeko and Ipokia would also be inaugurated in the next three weeks.

Abiodun, however, urged landlords  in the state to ensure that they know their tenants well enough, declaring his administration would not hesitate to demolish any property found to harbour kidnappers and other criminals.

He further called on the congregation at the Synod, to continue to see each other as their brothers keeper, adding they should continue to believe in the unity of the country.

The governor further noted that his administration has continuously embarked on the beefing up of the state's security architecture in order to create a safe haven for investors and enhance the economic development of Ogun.

Earlier in his charge, the Diocesan Bishop, Diocese of Yewa, Rt. Reverend M. A. Oluwarohunbi, commended Governor Abiodun for  running an all-inclusive  and participatory government.

Bishop Oluwarohunbi further appreciated the governor for giving the State Hospital in Ilaro a facelift both in outlook and service delivery, adding "we are glad that our town is also among locations where middle level housing estates are being constructed".

In his remarks, the Chairman of the occasion, Senator Solomon Adeola, represented by his Special Adviser on Media, Kayode Odunaro, commended the governor for his approach to governance in the state, saying "I am happy with the current state of development in Ogun".
