Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun on Wednesday, said that his government would prioritise road construction as part of efforts to attract more investment to the state.
Abiodun said this during a town hall meeting held in Ilaro, in the Yewa -South council area of the Ogun-West Senatorial District of the state.
The meeting was held to take input from people of the area ahead of the preparation of the 2020 budget.
A similar meeting was recently held in Ijebu -Ode to seek the opinions of the people of the Ogun-East Senatorial District.
The governor said that it was important to embark on road infrastructure if more investments were expected in the state.
He explained that Ogun-West senatorial district remained the industrial hub of the state, hence, the need to ensure that road networks in the axis were of good quality.
“If indeed we want to be serious about bringing investments into our dear state , if we indeed want to support the senatorial district, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure.
” If we want this senatorial district to continue to be the leading senatorial district in this country in terms of industrialisation, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure so as to continue to attract more investment to the area.
“We will ensure that we include the roads in our budget and ensure that critical roads are given quick attention.
“It is a self-evident truth that without this senatorial district, we can not be Gateway state. I therefore consider this district as a priority,” he said
The governor promised that comments, recommendations and proposals of the people raised at the meeting would be carefully considered in the preparation of the 2020 budget
Many stakeholders who spoke at the meeting had described road infrastructure as the major need of the area.
They complained that most of the roads in the area were in deplorable condition. (NAN)

Obayemi, an Assistant Corps Marshal, said that the crashes occurred in the four weeks of the Presidential lockdown ease in Lagos and Ogun.
“An analysis of the data of the Enforcement Operation carried out so far in the zone showed that we have a total of 81 road traffic crashes with only 24 fatal where 46 lives were lost.
“Forty-three of the crashes were serious which injured 154 people, while 14 were minor accidents,” he said.
According to him, the total vehicles stopped and returned to their originating places within the period were 2,872 while enforcing the Federal Government ban on inter-state travels.

Obayemi, who urged motorists to drive with care, said that the lockdown ease should not be another death sentence to road users.

“This is important so that as they run away from Coronavirus, they won’t be killed through careless and reckless driving on the road.
“Many of these road traffic crashes recorded are avoidable,” he said.
