Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has launched the dualisation of the 9.7km Saki Township Road along Oke Ogun Poly-Ilesha Ibaruba Road.
The Nation reports that he said the state has not collected its share of the Paris Club funds given to some states by the Federal Government.
The governor said the state was excluded in the initial disbursement, adding that the state is reconciling its accounts with the Federal Government in order to get its own share of the Paris Club excess deduction from states’ accounts.
Ajimobi spoke at a town hall meeting held at Harmony Garden, Saki town.
He said the government would use the arable land in Oke-Ogun for agriculture with assurances that his administration would make Oke Ogun the centre of agricultural revolution in the Southwest.
He pledged that the government was not relenting in its efforts at securing food security in the state through its Agric-Oyo programme.
The governor said the contract was awarded to Adolf Engineering Development Company at a sum of N8,239,875,839.47.
It is expected to be completed within 18months and would be funded from the Federal Government Infrastructure Intervention Fund.
