Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun has expressed displeasure as the Nigeria Labour Congress in the state protested on Wednesday over the deplorable condition of roads in Ado Odo/Ota Local Government Area of the state.
The governor while speaking at a virtual meeting with representatives of Ogun East Senatorial District on the 2022 budget, held at the Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta described the attempted demonstration as the scheme of some people who want to “paint the state colour that does not represent” it.
He disclosed that the effort made by the Ogun-Lagos government to rebuild the Federal road were void.
His words: “The attempted demonstration in Sango-Ota today is most unfortunate. Some people take delight in painting our state in a colour that does not represent our State.
“Ota is very important to us. The first set of roads by this administration was in that local government. The most expensive road, that is the Atan-Agbara road is in the Local Government.
“Ogun and Lagos governments have made attempt to get the Federal Government release the Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta road to us for reconstruction, but no response. I have called on several occasions to Federal Government to give attention to the road. That road did not just get bad in the last two years”.
The governor however implored people to stop playing to the tune of people that might intend to be political about all matters.
“Please be responsible, don’t play to the gallery. Governance is not a joke”.
