Governor Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), has commenced construction and rehabilitation of roads across the three senatorial districts of Ondo State.

The governor has mobilised engineers, technicians and other relevant officials of the Ondo State Agency for Road Maintenance and Construction to where the construction will begin.

According to the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Segun Ajiboye, major towns in the three senatorial districts would be affected as work had commenced on the internal and access roads in the Ondo State University of Science and Technology, Okitipupa, in the southern part of the state.

“The walkways are already being cast, while kerbs are also being constructed just as the components of the car parks are being put in place,” he said.

The development came just one week after the Deputy Governor, Mr. Agboola Ajayi visited the site of a project, which was initiated by the administration of a former Governor of the state, Dr. Olusegun Agagu.

Similarly in the Central Senatorial District, Ajiboye explained that reconstruction of the road linking Ilara-Mokin with Ikota in Ifedore Local Government Area was in progress and that the project would be completed in quick time.

He added that the Owo township roads being constructed by the immediate past administration of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko would be totally completed as work had already begun on them.
