Ogun state government has commenced palliative measures on the deplorable roads in Ota, the industrial hub capital of the state.
The Executive Governor of Ogun state, Prince Dapo Abiodun may have decided to hearken to the hankerings and groanings of residents and motorists in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of the state as palliative measure is set to commence on the roads.
VOA News correspondent, who monitored the offloading of pebbles and sands in Sango, Ota and Joju spoke with the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor, Hon. Kola Salako on the development to ascertain if the palliative measure was the effort of the state government or that of federal ministry of works.
Hon. Kola Salako confirmed that the pebbles and sand are from the state government and it is in accordance with the state governor’s efforts in mitigating the pains of Ota residents and commuters.
“The palliative measure is the effort of the state government. The executive governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who is a listening governor has decided to assist in putting the roads in a better shape”.
Recall that several efforts have been made by indigenes and residents of the local government to call the attention of state and federal governments to the terrible conditions of roads in the area.
VOA News gathered that on average, more than five (5) trucks fall off the highway in a week, a development which has led to avoidable loss of lives and properties.
