Ondo State government has assured residents of its determination to complete on-going road projects across the three senatorial districts of the state before the expiration of the Dr Olusegun Mimiko’s tenure next month.
New Telegraph reports that some of the road projects to be completed before February 24 when Mimiko’s tenure expires, according to Commissioner for Works, Mr Gboye Adegbenro included the Oba-Ile/Airport dual carriage and Ikaram/ Ibaram road.
Adegbenro who spoke with reporters during an inspection of the Akure/Airport road said the Mimiko administration had the highest number of constructed roads in the history of the state, assuring that none of the roads inherited from past administrations, including those initiated by it would be left uncompleted.
He said: “We have completed that assignment today, to God be the glory, 100 per cent, the Oba Adesida Road was one of such roads which designs had expired and was 34 years old in 2009 when we came in.
“We have constructed 29 kilometres out of about 31 kilometres in Ikare/Ibaramu/ Iboropa; and this government constructed two major bridges along that part. “We are here to fulfill our promises to try as possible that, at least, whatever we are leaving behind will not be much to the incoming government.
“With the way they are working now, the contractors have promised us that come February, before the exit of this government, they are going to link this place together. And with the way they are working now, I can assure you that this Oba-Ile/ Airport dual carriage road will be commissioned.”
