We Need N75billion To Fix Ota Roads, Abiodun Tells Ogun Protesters

Dapo Abiodun

ABEOKUTA - Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has called on the people to stop playing politics with issue affecting the lives of the people, disclosing that a sum of N75billion would be needed to rebuild the dilapidated Sango-Ota road, declaring that the state does not have such money.

Governor Abiodun who expressed disappointment over the attempt by some group of individuals over the deplorable condition of roads in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of the state, described the incident as "unfortunate."

He stated this on Wednesday, in a virtual meeting with representatives of Ogun East Senatorial District on the 2022 budget, held at the Governor's Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

He berated the demonstrators for trying to paint Ogun in "colours that do not represent the state".

"The attempted demonstration in Sango-Ota today is most unfortunate. Some people take delight in painting our state in a colour that does not represent our State.

"Ota is very important to us. The first set of roads by this administration was in that local government. The most expensive road, that is the Atan-Agbara road is in the Local Government.

"Ogun and Lagos governments have made attempt to get the Federal Government release the Lagos-Ota-Abeokuta road to us for reconstruction, but no response. I have called on several occasions to Federal Government to give attention to the road. That road did not just get bad in the last two years", he stated.

"Please be responsible, don't play to the gallery. Governance is not a joke", Gov. Abiodun warned.
