From John Dike,  Osogbo

Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state yesterday commissioned the second phase of the dualisation of Osogbo – Ikirun – Ila Odo, Kwara State boundary roads of (10.5km) from Osogbo Steel Rolling Company to Ikirun, Ifelodun local government area of the state.

Also at the commissioning, the Chairman and Chief Executive officer of Sammya Nigeria LTD, Engineer Adigun Sammy Oreoluwa, expressed readiness to always provide high quality and best road infrastructure for the government and people of Osun state in record time, as well as timely completion of the project as funds are made available.

It would be recalled that early this year, Governor Ademola Adeleke mobilised Sammya Construction Company back to site for the continuation of Osogbo/Ikirun/Ila Odo Kwara boundary road which was started by the Rauf Aregbesola administration about 10 years ago.

The Governor in his address at the commissioning, said “today signifies another landmark in the annals of history of our dear state. This Government has been able to meet the yearnings and aspirations of her citizens for a good road linking Osogbo – Ikirun within her first 100days in office.”

According to him: “this road project commenced on 9th January, 2013 under the administration of former Governor Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola, with the First Phase from Old Garage to Osogbo Steel Rolling Company which was commissioned on 19th November, 2018.”

Governor Adeleke noted that the immediate past Governor being a member of the same political party with his predecessor, paid a lip service to the project at the detriment of the entire populace of Osun State.

He stressed that, “there is no gainsaying, my administration commenced about 100 days ago and I made a covenant with God and the people of Osun State that all the meaningful on-going projects embarked upon by the previous administration would not be abandoned, but would be completed in record time.”

Adeleke remarked that the event heralds a clear testimony of his covenant, and further assured that another phase of the project will commence immediately.

He disclosed that he used the project as a proof to assure the entire people of Osun State about his administration’s commitment to the accelerated infrastructural development across the nooks and crannies of the State.

“It is no more news that my administration had commenced other twelve (12) road projects across the state, provision of borehole in all the 332 wards across the state and renovation of all the hospitals across the state in the last 100days.”

The Governor also urged the road users within and outside Osun state to appreciate this laudable effort and advised the people to desist from any act capable of undermining the road.

Adeleke implored the residents of the affected areas as well as the entirety of the citizenry of Osun state to come to the aid of the Government in protecting all infrastructure provided  against vandalization.

He remarked that it should also be noted that indiscriminate dumping of refuse on waterways is a very serious crime that the government shall not take lightly.
