Abiodun signs contract for road construction in Abeokuta North LG
The Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, says he has signed the contract for the reconstruction of major roads in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of the State.
Abiodun who made this known on Friday while speaking at the Abeokuta North local Government unified wards meeting of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) held at Oba Adeleye Park, Totoro, Abeokuta, said the contract was signed on Monday after he embarked on on-the-spot-assessment of the roads last weekend.
He also promised to continue prioritizing the infrastructural development of the state to ensure that no part is left out.
The governor explained that his visit to Ilugun, Iberekodo, Saje, Elega areas in the local government was to show how important the roads were to the commercial activities of Abeokuta and the state at large.
Appreciating the people of Abeokuta North for their support, Abiodun said that the current administration would ensure that necessary amenities are provided across the state as part of its efforts at making the environment more friendly and inhabitable.
He further added that his administration had installed two new power transformers at Lafenwa Market to power electricity in the market in accordance to the promise he made to the traders during his last visit to the market earlier in the year.
While calling on the party supporters to prepare for the forthcoming general elections, the state helmsman noted that the reason for his visit was to have first-hand information on some of the challenges being faced at the local government with a view to solving them.
He, however, urged women in the local council to key into the state women empowerment programme known as ‘Okowo Dapo’ to enable them benefit.
Speaking earlier, the State Chairman of the party, Yemi Sanusi, commended the governor for the massive infrastructural development across the state, stressing that the governor’s visit to the area would afford him the opportunity to know people’s needs and how to improve on the existing infrastructure.
