Earlier today, President Muhammadu Buhari arrived in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state, to inaugurate some projects overseen by Governor Dapo Abiodun.
Around 10:40 a.m., the president was greeted by Abiodun and other top state government officials in the Mojoda area of Ijebu-Ode, where he cut the ribbon for the 14-kilometer Ijebu-Ode-Mojoda-Epe expressway.
Buhari is also expected to dedicate other projects, such as the Gateway City Gate Monument Park and the Sagamu Interchange.
Two housing estates will also be inaugurated: a 527-unit low-and-medium-income housing scheme in Kobape, Obafemi-Owode LGA, and 83-unit duplexes in Kings Court Estate, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
According to NAN, the state capital of Abeokuta is getting a new look as major highways, bridges, and other major public institutions are being decorated.
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) and the state traffic monitoring and control agency had closed some major roads to traffic.
