Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun has reassured people of the state that areas yet to feel the impact of his administration will soon begin to enjoy infrastructural development.
Abiodun gave the assurance on Friday during the inauguration of the 5.7-kilometre Oru-Awa-Alaporu road in Ijebu North Local Government Area, as he continued his second term campaign tour to the council area.
The governor described the road as an important bypass that would boost the socio-economic development of the axis.
He urged the people to be patient as efforts were being intensified to spread more amenities, in line with the vision of his government.
The governor added that the inauguration of the road was another testimony of his administration’s drive toward opening up the state to ease movement of people, goods and services.
According to him, the road is the third to be inaugurated within a month in the local government area.
“This will be the third time we will be in this local government to commission road projects. We were here to commission the Igan road in Ago-Iwoye.
“About five weeks ago, we were at Ijebu-Igbo to commission the Molusi College Road and today, we are here to commission the Oru-Awa-Alaporu road.
“This local government area is indeed lucky to have three projects in less than four years.
“You can recall that this local government did not benefit from any project from the past government, but now you have three,” he said.
Enumerating the importance of the road, the governor stressed that it would serve as a bye-pass to Ijebu-Igbo and travellers from the state to Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Abiodun enjoined the residents to support his re-election in order to enjoy more dividends of democracy.
He said that all the legacy projects were reference points that his second term would bring in more development projects to the state.
Also speaking, the Orimolusi of Ijebu-Igbo, Oba Lawrence Adebajo, appreciated the present administration for extending development projects to the local government, calling on the people to support the governor for a second term.
