Governor Dapo Abiodun has come out to say that his government would do all they can to make road construction a priority in Ogun state.
He said more effort would go into that in order to attract more investment to the state.
He revealed this during a town hall meeting held in Ilaro, in the Yewa -South council area of the Ogun-West Senatorial District of the state.
His words, “If indeed we want to be serious about bringing investments into our dear state , if we indeed want to support the senatorial district, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure.
”If we want this senatorial district to continue to be the leading senatorial district in this country in terms of industrialisation, we must do something about the quality of the road infrastructure so as to continue to attract more investment to the area.
“We will ensure that we include the roads in our budget and ensure that critical roads are given quick attention.
“It is a self-evident truth that without this senatorial district, we can not be Gateway state. I therefore consider this district as a priority.”
Great future ahead for Ogun State.
