The Olu of Obafemi, Oba Taofeek Owolabi has appealed to Ogun state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun to consider the rehabilitation of the Obafemi- Owode road to ease movements and improve the state economy.
The Monarch made the appeal at the 9th Coronation and Thanksgiving service held at his palace in Obafemi-Owode.
While speaking to newsmen, Oba Owolabi lamented that past administration came up with load of promises to reconstruct the deplorable road but nothing was done.
He said ” The state governor during his campaign made a lot of promises that if he wins the election, the road will be fixed. If the previous administration have been doing it bit by bit, there won’t be any portholes. ”
He added that the town is a basket food for Ogun State and not only the local government .
“If you’re coming from Abeokuta, you will see so many resources . We have so many land that if the government wants to do agriculture, we have enough land to give them . Besides that, you will see that there are mineral resources ,the mining where the government is generating their revenue. There are a lot for government to gain if this road is done. This road is begging and calling for repair”, he said.
He urged the people of the communities to continue supporting the government, pray, and love one another .
“Cooperate with one other and be a law abiding citizens. You should support the present administration in all ramifications to the government to do this road for us.”
The Chairman board of trustees members, Bishop (Dr ) Ezekiel Olukunle also urged the government to allow peace to reign.
“The situation of the country nowadays is giving us problem . We need peace to reign . If we have peace every where will be settled. Without peace we cannot see anything that will give us happiness”, Olukunle added.
