Oluwo Appeals for Prompt Reconstruction of Osogbo-Iwo-Ibadan

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has appealed to the government of Osun State to commence the reconstruction of Osogbo-Iwo-Ibadan.

In a statement by his Press Secretary, Mr Alli Ibrheem, Oba Akanbi described the road as the life-wire of Osun State in terms of road networks, stating that its neglect has done a lot of economic harm to the state.

While commending Governor Oyetola for his readiness to fix the road, he enjoined politicians to stop politicizing development, saying the road is crucial to re-awakening the commercial, bilateral relationship between Osun and Oyo States.

The Monarch lauded Osun and Oyo state governments for the bilateral understanding that aided the approval by the two states, noting its reconstruction would in no small way ameliorate passengers’ plight and boost the economy of the two states.

He said no patriot of the two states would consider such a project of monumental benefit a wasteful project, urging politicians to stop politicizing development.

The Paramount ruler of Iwoland lamented the deplorable state of the road, disclosing some traders were now avoiding Osun State because of the Osogbo-Iwo-Ibadan road network.

He beseeched the government on prompt reconstruction, saying the people of Osun West in particular and Osun State by extension would forever be grateful to his government.

“Osogbo-Iwo-Ibadan road is the economic life-wire of Osun State and in particular, Osun West Senatorial District in terms of road networks. That is the only straight road connecting Lagos and Ibadan with Osun State. Its economic advantage to Nigeria and the Geo political zone is enormous “

“While I commend the government of both Osun and Oyo States for the bilateral understanding that aided the approval, I appeal to the Osun State Government to “wait no more”. They two are wonderful governors whose performances are enviable. They have set a pace for other leaders to follow, that party affiliation should be set aside when development is involved”

“I urge politicians in every state to emulate these wonderful personalities. Osogbo-Iwo-Ibadan road is acute to strengthen the commercial and economic relationship of Osun with many states. Osun Patriots should look beyond politics. We should stop politicizing development”

“Every bad road is criminals’ hideout. The status of the road is causing a lot of accidents. I know the time has come for people to smile on this road. The government should be fast. I’m eager to see my People smiling. Oyetola put a smile on our faces”
