Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on Friday disclosed that work will begin on some major roads across the state this year, citing Ilishan – Ago Iwoye, Denro – Ishasi – Akute, Siun – Ofada – Mowe and Agbara – Atan – Lusada Roads as examples.

In his New Year message to residents of Ogun State, Abiodun observed that despite the vicissitudes of life occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic, his Administration has made positive impacts in accordance with the promises made ahead of the 2019 elections across different parts of the state.

His words, “I am proud that we have kept our promise that all the inherited projects that have a direct bearing on the continued development of our dear State will not be abandoned. In fact, those that could no longer be used for their initial purposes will be converted to other uses for the benefit of the good people of our dear State.

“Indeed, works are ongoing at various sites of the inherited legacy road projects in the three Senatorial Districts. Examples are Kuto-NNPC Road and Bridge in Abeokuta, Adatan-Gbonagun-Obantoko-Osiele Road, Ilaro-Owode Road, Oluwalogbon-Imowo-Ejinrin Road, Ijebu-Ode, and others. The Ogun State Public Works Agency (OGPWA) has been mandated to carry out palliative works on 25 – 30 km township and rural roads monthly.

“Other road constructions that will commence this year include the Agbara- Atan Lusada road, Ilishan- Ago Iwoye Road, Denro Ishasi Akute road, Shiun Owode Ofada  Mowe road amongst others. While we shall be completing Sagamu-Abeokuta Road, Ijebu-Ode-Epe  and Ilaro-Owode roads  just to mention a few.”

Besides, Abiodun also disclosed that Ogun State is set to add 100MW of electricity to the national grid through the involvement of the private sector, explaining that, “There is a consensus that energy is very central to both the economic prosperity and general wellbeing of the society. Our Administration thus embarked on a number of key initiatives to boost energy supply, both for the industries and domestic use. We established the Ogun State Energy and Electricity Board, the first of its kind in the history of the State.

“The Board coordinates all the interventions in the sector. And I am delighted to note that the Board has facilitated the signing of Memoranda of Understanding with two reputable energy firms that will add not less than 100MW to the energy supply to our state. This figure will almost double the existing public power supply. In addition, the Board will also provide technical training to our youth to serve as technicians, metering officers amongst others, thus creating employment opportunities.”
