Disturbed by the deplorable condition of the Igbara-Oke / Ibuji / Ekiti state boundary road, Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has reconstructed the road, which links Ondo State with the neighboring Ekiti State.
The 8.1km road, which was practically impassable before now, has been reconstructed to further open up the sunshine state and promote economic growth between the state and its neighbouring Ekiti state.
A motorist said, “You will recall that for over eight years, residents of Igbara-oke, Ibuji and other road users suffered untold hardship following the deplorable state of the Igbara-oke-Ibuji road. The bad condition of the road forced road users, who find it convinient and faster to travel from Ekiti state to Ondo via the road, to seek other routes”.
Luck, however, smiled on the people when Governor Akeredolu visited the road sometime last year and declared his administration could no longer sit and watch the citizens suffer and endangering their lives.
Few months after that promise, the road has become another promise fulfilled by the Akeredolu administration.
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Segun Ajiboye said, “the government has shown total commitment to the welfare and comfort of the people of the state”.
“The Igbara Oke/Ibuji road is wearing new look and the people now feel safe traveling between the two sister states”.
