Disturbed by the deplorable situation of Igbara-Oke-Ibuji-Ekiti state boundary road, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) on thursday expressed the determination of his administration to reconstruct the road which links Ondo State with the neighboring Ekiti state.
Speaking with reporters shortly after an inspection tour of the road, Akeredolu said in view of the fact that the road had become practically impassable, the State Government has decided to reconstruct it.
The governor who said the State Government could no longer watch its citizens plying the road suffer by putting their lives in danger added that before the commencement of the reconstruction, the Federal Government would be adequately informed so that reimbursement would be seamless.
Findings revealed that in view of the bad state of the road, motorists ply the road in fear as criminals regularly strike on the ‘terribly’ bad portions of the road.
