Gov Dapo Abiodun To Ago-Iwoye: Govt Not Insensitive On Bad Roads
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, yesterday said his administration was not insensitive to the plight of residents complaining about bad roads and other poor critical infrastructure in the state.
Abiodun, who spoke at the 33rd Ago-Iwoye Day celebration held in Ago-Iwoye, Ijebu North Local Government Area, said current climatic conditions, especially rains, were hampering some roads rehabilitation and construction plans of the state government.
The event, organised by the Ago-Iwoye Central Development Council (ACDC), also featured the launch of N500 million for the community’s hospital project.
Dignitaries in attendance included a former deputy governor of the state, Prince Segun Adesegun, Ebumawe of Ago-Iwoye, Oba Abdulrazaq Adenugba, insurance guru, Sir Feyisayo Soyewo and the ACDC Chairman, Daniel Oluwatosin, among others.
In his address, the governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Tokunbo Talabi, promised not to let down the trust of the people.
Abiodun assured that all promises made during the electioneering would be realised, urging the people to be patient with the present administration.
He disclosed that the Ilishan-Ago-Iwoye road, which had become deplorable, has already been listed among the priority roads to be fixed by the state government.
Apart from intervention in roads, the governor said his administration had also embarked on a series of developmental initiatives to liberate the people to be self-reliant and prospective employers of labour.
He, however, asked indigenes of Ago-Iwoye to key into his administration’s developmental initiatives, especially Anchor Borrowers programme and Oko’wo Dapo Micro Empowerment scheme.
“I humbly reiterate that with God Almighty still by on our side, I reassure you all that our adminstration would not let your trust down but would ensure that all the promises made during our campaign period would be realised by God’s enabling grace,” he added.
