OPINION : Dapo Abiodun, Ogun Waste 5 Years, 2019-2024 

Luqman Soliu

If not for politics of retrogression played by the trio of Osinbajo. Adams Oshiomole and Tinubu, Ogun won’t have relapsed this far.

For 5 years, Adatan road of less than a Kilometer in the heart of Abeokuta couldn’t be completed  Even Amosun dualized Lafenwa-Rounder road was reduced to a lane ditto to Ilisan-Ago-Iwoye road not leaving Abeokuta-Sagamu road earlier designed to be 8 lanes but just torched and reduced to 4 lanes.

Abeokuta – Sango road has worst experience as the road turns to one of the worst roads in Ogun State. Even roads constructed by the current administration couldn’t survive a year.

Oba Erinwole road in Sagamu commissioned just last year has started experiencing pot holes before Rano Station on the right side enroute Ikorodu road.

Ijebu Ode Muslim Grammar School road to Obalende- Imosan road is another sorry state. Ohhhh.

Igbesa people were lucky as Free Trade Zones Companies dualized their road from Lusada but I learnt the government has sealed an agreement for the Company to toll the road for 25 years .

Same arrangement happened along Ijebu Ode Epe road.

The Agbara people suffers the worst despite being one of the largest towns with industrial concentration in Ogun State. Ijoko Ota and Owode/ Balode people in Ota, please pray for local government autonomy so as to be remembered as nothing for you now.

The daily dust from Atan is superb. Ojodu Abiodun- Berger road which wanted to receive attention before election has gone into comatose again.

Ilogbo road from Iyana Ilogbo- Ota to Oju Ore is another worse route in OGUN State. Even Iporo Ake road in front of Optima filling station used less than 9 months before it returned to his pre-february 2023 commission woeful condition.

Elega Bode Olude road in ABEOKUTA is not only begging for attention like Okebukun road but can make a pregnancy be aborted on the road.

But don’t let us blame our Governor too much because he couldn’t even complete Iperu Ode road where his personal house is located.

Ago Iwoye township road hurriedly patched to mark 90th birth date celebration of Awujale couldn’t even survive a week before everything got removed again.

For sub standard jobs, please this administration gets distinction.
