Oyo State Government through the Chairman, Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OYSROMA), Hon. Kamila Akinlabi disclosed that almost all roads within the Ibadan metropolis have been repaired.
Hon. Kamil stated this at Ibadan while monitoring the ongoing repair works on the Dugbe-Ekotedo road in Ibadan on Friday.
Akinlabi said it was imperative that Ibadan, the State capital needed to have its roads fixed so as to send a strong message to local and foreign investors that the State was ready to accommodate them and for easy movement of people and goods within the metropolis.
“We have done almost all the roads that needed attention at the beginning of this administration within the Ibadan metropolis and we are still working on those that need urgent attention in the areas of damaged bridges and culverts as well as roads.
“Move round the metropolis and see for yourself the work that the State government has done through OYSROMA to make our people proud that they now have a government that has put their welfare first, the essence of government is to cater for the needs of the common people, not the wealthy few and that is why maintenance of roads are germane.
The Chairman also visited Premier Hotel along Mokola hill road, Ibadan where another road repair was being carried out among other areas in the metropolis.
