Makinde Gets FG’s Nod On Iseyin-Oyo Road
The Federal Government has given the Oyo State Government the nod to embark on the reconstruction Oyo-Iseyin road.
The Governor has earlier in the year promised the people of Iseyin that his administration will start work on the abandoned road after consultations must have been made with the federal government.
Governor Seyi Makinde disclosed this on Thursday while engaging citizens for consultation to obtain their inputs towards an all- inclusive 2022 budget process held at University of Ibadan International Conference.
Makinde said that the Federal Government has given Oyo State the go- ahead on the reconstruction of 43km Oyo- Iseyin Road.
“So, I am happy to report that the Minister was gracious and has given us his verbal go-ahead.
“The Minister asked us to come with the document and it will be signed.
“Hopefully, we will get the written approval within this coming week and we will proceed to officially flag off the Oyo-Iseyin road”, he said.
The road will further open the Oke-Ogun region of the State to economic and social opportunities and aid the State’s strive to attain commercial prosperity through agriculture, which the region is known for among other areas of Oyo State and the South-West Nigeria.
