Abiodun said the Abeokuta-Ifo-Ota-Lagos Road would wear a new look in the next 18 months .
PLATFORM TIMES observed that the new date is dicey except that the governor is re elected by the people of the state in the coming election.
PLATFORM TIMES also observed that Abiodun’s failure to get his second term may dash the hope of thousands of the motorists and commuters who go through harrowing pains while plying the road, owned by the federal government.

The government had also said that the state executive council had approved the reconstruction of 32km Ijoko/Sango/Agbado road.
But, the government however, failed to keep the promise on the road and did not explain why it could not fulfil the promise on the road which has killed tens of people in the state .
Breaking the news to the people on Tuesday, Abiodun said his administration which would have completed his first term in May 2023, said would complete it in 2024.
Placating the people ,Abiodun made another round of promise ,saying, agreement would soon be reached with the Federal Government to reconstruct the road.
He said this while inaugurating the Itori Township Road in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.
While blaming the federal government for the failure to complete the road as promised ,the governor said , previous efforts made by his administration were not successful as the federal government insisted that the road was under a contract
He declared that his administration would fix major roads that are in a deplorable condition.
The governor said ” the reconstruction of the road was in fulfilment of the promise made during 2019 campaign, the essence of government is to serve the people.
“My administration remained the first to ensure equal distribution of projects to all parts of the state, no local government has been left out in project execution.”
