“I want to implore our people to be patient with us. We cannot reconstruct all the bad roads in three years,” he said.

“In fact, no administration can reconstruct all the roads in Ogun State, not even in 8 years.

“When I assumed office on the 29th of May, 2019, the deficit that we met on assumption of office was such that we began to wonder what the previous administration was doing.

“In some instances, they appear to have good intentions; they go to the roads, they demolish houses, roads that should not be more than a single carriageway, they turn them to dual carriageways.

“By so doing, they removed all the asphalt that was there serving the people and abandoned these roads.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE

“We inherited quite a lot of these roads. Some of those roads are federal roads, and you know our people cannot differentiate between federal and state. They will geo-locate their pains where and when they are feeling it.”

Abiodun, however, assured residents that his administration would ensure that road construction projects are evenly distributed throughout the state.

“My pledge is that I have come here today to see things for myself. Two roads are considerably important to our people.

“First of all, the Denro-Ishashi-Akute road, I have given the contractor a matching order that the road must be completed in the next two weeks, asphalt and the bridge.

“I want to assure you all that it is your time now. It is your right. You voted for us. I am a promise-keeping governor.

“I will not make empty promises. Now, within the next two weeks, maximum of three weeks, active construction will start on Alagbole-Ajuwon and Akute-Ajuwon roads.

“Today, here, we’ve reconstructed Olusegun Osoba-Toyin Street, Denro-Ishashi-Akute is under construction. We have so many other roads we’ve constructed here.

“But because there is so much deficit in the infrastructural development in this area, at times, it appears as if we are not reconstructing them as fast as they want us to.

“The primary health care centre is here, I will reconstruct it. I have told Hon. Fola Salami and the Commissioner (health) to look for a land for me here because I will build a new one for you. I want to build a brand new primary health care centre that is befitting for Ajuwon-Alagbole-Akute,” he added.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE
