Ogun to reconstruct Agbara road

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has said that the state government has concluded plans to reconstruct the Atan-Lusada-Agbara road in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area and Agbara-Igbesa Local Council Development Area of the state.

The governor, who also visited flood ravaged Isheri, a border town with Lagos State, said his administration would declare a state of emergency  in the area.

Abiodun said the perennial flooding in Isheri was beyond the Gateway State, stressing that urgent steps should be taken to address the situation.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Kunle Somorin, stated that the road project would be funded with the assistance of the African Finance Corporation (AFC).

The Atan-Agbara axis is the country’s biggest industrial hub, playing host to over 70 industries manufacturing various consumer goods being distributed across the country.

Residents, commuters and motorists plying the route have for over six years been lamenting the hardship they are subjected to on a daily basis, as a result of the poor state of the road.

The lifespan of vehicles plying the route has been drastically reduced, while human lives are put at risk as they travel through the road.

Efforts to get the state government to carry out palliative work on the road had yielded no results until now.

Prince Abiodun, who spoke on the efforts to reconstruct the road in his office, while receiving a four-man team from the AFC, said that his government had since realised that the biggest concern for the people of the state was the state of the road network.
