He said: “I must use this opportunity tell our citizens in Igbogbo division some of our modest ongoing projects and attempts to bring about quality good governance to your door step.
“We are working on the Ipakodo/Oba Sekumade Road being done by Arab Contractors and they have assured me that we will see tremendous improvements within the next two to four weeks on the project.
“We will be handing over the Ijede/Itamaga phase 1 road to you in the month of May; the six kilometres road is almost completed. But we are not leaving you to that; we will ensure that we start the phase ll.
“I have driven and seen the state of roads in Obafemi Awolowo/Baiyeku Road. I will arrange to see how we will award these roads as soon as possible. The Igbogbo/Baiyeku Road, which is a tough one, is being run by Hitech. We have called Hitech to speed up that road so that we can give our citizens the desired relief.
“But it is not only that, I am standing before you and giving you a commitment that the compensation that is due on that road will be paid within the next 30 to 60 days. We are working on the Agric-Isawo Road. We are pushing the contractor to take it to a logical conclusion.”
