Ogun State Governornment on Thursday directed contractors to resume work on the abandoned Lafenwa-Rounda Road.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor , Kunle Somorin disclosed this in a statement issued and made available to newsmen.
Somorin said the last administration began the project but later left it uncompleted, bringing untold hardship to road users, pedestrians and residents within the axis, with regular traffic congestion, car wear and tear, and business disruption.
The statement read “as a road connecting Abeokuta, the State Capital with some major towns in Yewaland and neighbouring Oyo State, the Lafenwa-Rounda Road has been declared by the Government as a viable road which is keen on completing on the shortest possible time.
“This is as work has equally resumed on several other roads left to rot by the past administration.
“These include Kuto Bridge and the surrounding road, Elega, Panseke-Adigbe, Adatan-Car Wash, Owode-Ilaro, among others.
“The resumption of work on these sites has been widely commended by the populace, as showing Governor Dapo Abiodun to be a leader focused on good and people-centred governance.”
