The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, Monday called for calm over the poor condition of the Federal Roads in the Sango area of the State.
His said his government would do everything humanly possible, not only to fix the roads in the State, especially, Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government to ensure that the people enjoy “better life”.
Governor Abiodun gave the assurance on the heels of the growing agitations for the reconstruction of Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta; Ota-Idiroko and Sango-Joju roads in the industrial town by EndSARS protesters.
In the plea, the Governor, stressed that permanent solutions would be brought to these roads in no distant future/
He stated that his Administration has already carried out palliative works on the Ota-Idiroko Road, while plans were in top gear to do the same on the Sango-Joju Road, where more materials and equipment would be delivered this week.
Gov Abiodun disclosed that the Sango-Joju Road had last week been approved by the Tenders Board, and is now awaiting award and ratification by the State Executive Council.
This plea was contained in a personal message circulated online via the verified page of the Governor.
In his message, Governor Abiodun said he understood the plight of the people, adding that he would not allow any security agency to stifle the voices of demonstrators who are simply exercising their fundamental right of association, assembly and peaceful protests.
The Governor recalled that the Ogun and Lagos State Governments had earlier requested the ceding of these Federal Roads from the Federal Government, for full reconstruction.
He however disclosed that there has not been a positive response yet from the Federal Government, making it impossible to bring a permanent solution to the roads, even as the Ogun State Government continues to carry out palliative works pending the approval.
It would be recalled that the first road projects that Gov Abiodun’s Administration embarked on were located in Ota: Osi Ikola-Navy and AIT/Raypower roads where these demonstrations are ongoing.
Governor Abiodun pleaded with the people to exercise patience while the State Government intensifies efforts to take over the road and immediately begin immediate reconstruction.
He also urged the demonstrators to carry out their protest peacefully, and not allow enemies of the state to hijack their non-violent demonstrations.

  1. Which enemy of the state? Gov. Dapo Abiodun has not delivered good governance yet in Ogun state. Even the magnificent roads that Senator Ibikunle Amosun constructed are still where he left them. The governor called them “abandoned” projects of which he promised to complete but has not done anything on them. He is now promising to team up with Lagos State to complete Federal roads when his own local roads are in deplorable condition.
    Very soon the protesters would ask the governor for good governance instead of wasting taxpayers money on immorality BBNAIJA show.
