Chief Mustapha Gbadegesin, Baale Lapojokun
Engineer Abolade Akanni’s led administration in Iseyin Local Government had been lauded for construction of the Odo-Ebo/ Ago-Aluwaya road at Ekunle area of the town.
The local government council had embarked upon the construction of the road due to its neglect despite that it has much economic importance which would directly benefit the people living in the area and the township as well.
The one kilometre road with stone-support drainage lines and some culverts as well as a bridge over the Odo-Ebo river was a direct labour project, supervised by the Iseyin Local Government’s Work’s Department.
According to Baale Lapojokun Ago Aluwaya, Chief Mustapha Gbadegesin, the people of the community were happy for the road project as the road had been abandoned for over twenty years which rendered it impassable for pedestrians not to talk of motorists and motorbike riders.
Chief Gbadegesin said “we thank God that today, the local government has completed the road and we are happy because there is now free movement of vehicles, motorbikes and people in general. In fact we have to call our small children together to educate them on how to cross the smooth road.
“We salute the courage of the Chairman of Iseyin local government, Engr. Bolade Akanni for giving this long-abandoned road the attention it needed. He is original Ekunle son who knows where the shoe pinches his own people.
“I am a farmer like many people in this area and you can see that this road will help farmers easily transport their farm produce straight to the market. The farmers are happy for this noble gesture of our Chairman.”
The community leader also praised the leadership style of Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba (Dr) Abdul-Ganiy Salawudeen Adekunle (Oloogun-Ebi Ajinese 1) for giving the necessary supports to the local government administration and guiding the traditional council towards moving their various communities forward.
“We in this community will also to extend our appreciation to our appreciation to our amiable King, Oba (Dr) Adekunle Oloogunebi Ajinese 1 for giving purposeful leadership for us members of the traditional council to follow. This is part of the dividends of his good leadership,” he enthused.
