Prince Dapo Abiodun, Governor, Ogun State, on Friday, disclosed that the Federal Government has approved the Ilaro-Papalanto-Sagamu expressway in support of the State efforts on infrastructural development.
Addressing the residents and people of Yewa South at Ilaro, Abiodun disclosed that the reconstruction of the 100 kilometers road will cost the Government about N79bn.
He added that the road which crosses through Obafemi-Owode, Ewekoro, Yewa South and North local government areas is a major arterial road that links the State to other States and the ECOWAS sub-region.
While assuring that his administration would complete the Owode-Ilaro Road before the end of the year, the governor disclosed that his administration had completed 66 projects in the Yewa South LG, in two years.
The governor, however, called on the people of the local government to come out in large number and vote the APC chairmanship candidate, Lateef Salami and other councillorship candidates during the LG poll.
