Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo state, has flagged off the construction of the N9.6 billion Akobo – Olorunda/Abaa road project in Ibadan.

According to NAN, the dualisation of the 8.3 kilometres road project in Lagelu LGA was contracted to Samchase Nigeria Ltd.

Makinde, who reiterated his commitment to infrastructure development, said his administration has resolved to put in place critical infrastructure that would open up the state for economic expansion.

He said 30 percent of the contract cost has been paid to enhance speedy completion of the project within the time-frame of 12 months.


Soliciting the co-operation of residents, Makinde said the project would have positive impact on the communities in the LGA

He added that the road  would also boost the state internally generated revenue when completed.

Makinde also named the Akobo-Olorunda/Abaa road after Nyesom Wike, former governor of Rivers state.


Commenting, Kazeem Gbadamosi, Chairman of Lagelu LGA, said the road dualisation would ease movement of goods and services in the neighborhood.

Gbadamosi said when completed, the project would have direct impact on the political and socioeconomic activities of residents of the LGA.

Also speaking, Hyginus Okoro, technical officer of Samchase Nig. Ltd, promised that the company would deliver quality and standard project.

Okoro said the company would keep to the time-frame for delivery and that value for every penny expended on the project would be provided.
