After 45 Years Of Construction, Oyetola Inaugurates 8.1km Moro-Yakoyo-Ipetumodu-Asipa Road




The Osun State Governor, MPR Adegboyega Oyetola, on Thursday, inaugurated the newly-reconstructed 8.1km Moro-Yakoyo-Ipetumodu-Asipa road in Ife-North Local Government Area of the State after 45 years of construction.

Speaking during the inauguration ceremony at Ipetumodu, Governor Oyetola noted that the reconstruction of the road after decades of its deplorable status has further justified the government’s avowed commitment to giving adequate attention to intra- and inter-city roads so as to facilitate the movement of goods and people and as well serve as a catalyst for massive investment in the state.

Oyetola who reiterated the Administration’s commitment to road infrastructural development said the state under his watch would continue to muster resources to build strategic roads across the state.

“You will all recall that in my Inauguration Speech on November 27, 2018, I did mention that we recognised the importance of intra- and inter-city roads to facilitate movement of goods and people and that we shall continue to muster resources to build strategic roads across the State. You will agree with me that we have kept faith in the above promise.

“Since coming to the office a little over two and half years ago, apart from funding all the major road projects we inherited from the previous administration, our Administration has carried out about 100 road intervention efforts, including construction and rehabilitation of over 80 rural and township roads across the three Senatorial Districts in line with the quality, equitable and adequate service/project delivery of our Development Agenda.

“Apart from the iconic Olaiya Flyover in the State capital, which has reached about 50 per cent completion, we have completed several other roads, while others are ongoing.
“Among them are Alekuwodo road and over 25km Ede-Ara-Ejigbo road which has been inaugurated, as well as Igbajo-Ada 13km road and Ilesa Roundabout-Sabo-Akure Expressway 4.1km which are ready for inauguration.

“The first phase of the Modakeke Famia road has also been completed, just as we have commenced Phase 2 of the project. The Aagba township road which was awarded in September last year is nearing completion, while those of Ido-Osun, Kuta, Gbongan and Ejigbo are all ongoing, just as the 16km Osogbo-Kelebe-Iragbiji road is nearing completion.

“Other ongoing road projects are GOF Ori Oke Pure Water, Osogbo; LAUTECH-Ajegunle, Osogbo, Ikirun-Ekoinde and Oroki Estate to All Souls Anglican Church, Okefia. Work will soon start on the reconstruction of 10km Ila-Arandun road and Lawyer Atanda road Iwo any time soon.

“Let me seize this occasion to inform this gathering that, in addition to this road, which we are inaugurating today, the reconstruction of Iloro- Aganun road, Ile-Ife, will be completed in a few months from now. We have successfully done 41 PHCs in the entire Ife land while the rehabilitation of the General Hospital, Ifetedo, has been completed.

“Today, the people of Moro, Yakoyo, Ipetumodu and Asipa join the above-mentioned towns and other scores of their counterparts that have benefitted from our resolve to make our people enjoy the good life and socio-economic dividends. The road will offer your farmers and traders the opportunity to transport their produce and goods to the market.

“I must also restate my call for the need for your communities and other towns in the State to engage in community development efforts to provide projects for the people as government alone cannot provide all the facilities every town requires.

“I urge the people of Moro, Yakoyo, Ipetumodu, Asipa and the entire Ife North Local Government to reciprocate government’s gesture by engaging in small businesses and entrepreneurial activities in order to derive personal benefits from our infrastructure development and road construction efforts and boost their personal lives and prosper their families. I must also urge you all to join cooperative societies to further boost your businesses.

“Our goal as a government is to spread amenities, including roads, to every village and town, in the long run, to provide opportunities for the people, eliminate crime and unemployment, and check rural-urban migration. We believe that the prosperity of Osun lies in the amalgam of the prosperity of all the people, which, if well harnessed, will become channels of socioeconomic development of the state. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
