Gov Abiodun says road infrastructure will take priority in Ogun

Governor Dapo Abiodun has promised to prioritise road construction as part of efforts to attract more investment to the state.

The Ogun state governor on Wednesday, October 16, said this during a town hall meeting held in Ilaro, in the Yewa -South council area of the Ogun-West Senatorial District of the state.

If indeed we want to be serious about bringing investments into our dear state , if we indeed want to support the senatorial district, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure,” Governor Abiodun said.

The governor said that it was important to embark on road infrastructure if more investments were expected in the state.

He explained that Ogun-West senatorial district remained the industrial hub of the state, hence, the need to ensure that road networks in the axis were of good quality.

” If we want this senatorial district to continue to be the leading senatorial district in this country in terms of industrialisation, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure so as to continue to attract more investment to the area.

“We will ensure that we include the roads in our budget and ensure that critical roads are given quick attention.

It is a self-evident truth that without this senatorial district, we can not be Gateway state. I therefore consider this district as a priority,” he said

The governor promised that comments, recommendations and proposals of the people raised at the meeting would be carefully considered in the preparation of the 2020 budget.

The meeting was held to take input from people of the area ahead of the preparation of the 2020 budget.

A similar meeting was recently held in Ijebu -Ode to seek the opinions of the people of the Ogun-East Senatorial District.
