In fulfilment of his social-contract with the people of Ogun State, to complete various abandoned projects of the past administration, the State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has mobilized contractors handling these projects to commence work without further delay.
The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ade Akinsanya made this revelation during inspection of some ongoing construction of roads and flyovers, which included the Asphalt laying of the Kuto Flyover, Mokola Bridge, along Ajitadun-Adatan Road, as well as Panseke-Adigbe Road, among others.
Engr. Akinsanya reiterated the State Government’s determination at ensuring the completion of all legacy projects in the State, to boost socio-economic activities, saying government had release funds to expedite action in executing the numerous abandoned projects.
“Let me categorically point out that the Prince Dapo Abiodun administration has released funds to ensure speedy conclusion of all abandon projects by the previous administration. It is alarming that most of these projects have been awarded since 2012 and 2013”, he said.
In his remark, the Project Manager, China Civil Engineering Construction Company (CCECC), Engr. Sewell Zhao, said release of the needed fund was timely, as it would fast track the completion of the projects, thereby relieving the stress of motorists, commuters and other road users.
In their separate remarks, some motorists, traders and other road users applauded the intervention, saying the road constructions, when fully completed would ease traffic in the State.
Meanwhile, the earthwork of the ongoing reconstruction of Idi-Aba, Elite Road–Oke-Lantoro is in appreciable stage.
