Ogun State Government has committed to resume building the long abandoned Gbenro-Isashi-Akute road in Ifo Local Government.
Governor Dapo Abiodun, while speaking during his inspection of the ongoing construction of Panseke-Adigbe road in Abeokuta, said the Abeokuta road, though awarded by the last administration, was abandoned, hence the need to revisit.
The news brings relief to residents of border communities such as Gbenro, Isashi and Akute in Ogun State, who have consistently lamented the state of the road.
“As we are working here, similar projects are also ongoing at Elite road, Obantoko, road, Lafenwa-Rounda and other access roads in the state capital. We have to build befitting infrastructure for our state capital.
“We are also working on the Epe-Ijebu-Ode road, township roads in Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu-North, Sagamu as well as Ilaro-Owode road. We have completed two roads at Ota. We have also listed another set of roads such as the Gbenro-Isase-Akute road in Ifo Local Government. They are the next set of roads we are going to do,” the governor said.
The Gbenro-Isashi-Akute road has been abandoned in the last 20 years and residents have been traumatised by the bad condition of the road for over two decades.
