The Ogun State Government has said it will commence the construction of the Agbara-Lusada- Atan Road in two weeks’ time.
Governor Dapo Abiodun stated this at the opening ceremony of the 10th Gateway International Trade Fair titled, ‘Transforming Agriculture and Commerce in a Highly Competitive Global Market.’
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to Abiodun, Mr. Kunle Somorin, said the road would ease vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.
He added that the Ogun State Small and Medium Scale Enterprise Intervention Fund for technology-based business would be launched soon.
“This administration has embarked on massive road construction and rehabilitation across the state, including roads to industrial hubs. We will be inaugurating the construction of Agbara-Lusada- Atan Road in the next two weeks. We are also paying attention to rural roads to boost agriculture and development of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises,” he said.
Also speaking at the event, the Commissioner for Industry, Trade, and Investment, Mrs. Kikelomo Longer, said trade fairs were held around the world to showcase variety of products and services and to launch recent inventions, adding that the state would explore the opportunities offered by this year’s trade fair to propagate the administration’s efforts at attracting investors to the state.
