SENATOR representing Oyo North Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Abdulfatai Buhari has requested for the urgent reconstruction of Iseyin-Oyo roads and Igbeti- Ilorin road.
The Iseyin–Oyo road is one of the worst roads in the region, the journey of 45 minutes now takes more than 5hours due to the deplorable condition of the road and the alternative route which links Iseyin to Moniya is also in bad shape.
Apart from the condition of the roads linking Igbeti to Ilorin, Kwara State capital, a major bridge on the route has collapsed making it difficult for motorists to move freely.
The Lawmaker in a letter to the Minister of Works and House, Babatunde Raji Fashola said “ The two bridge on the road linking the entire Oke Ogun axis had broken down, thus affecting the free movement of goods and people.
“We appeal to you on these roads which house 10LGS in my Senatorial District, they are the only two roads that link the entire Oke Ogun area of Oyo state, Oyo/Iseyin serves as the west axis, while Igbeti –Ilorin serves as the North Axis”.
“The 10 LGS are, Iseyin Itesiwaju, Kajola, Iwajowa, Orelope, Saki West, Saki East, Olorunsogo Irepo, Atisbo”.
Senator Buhari, the first lawmaker to break the second time jinx at the senatorial district in a chat with journalists said he is not leaving any stone unturned in ensuring that the road is fixed as soon as possible. He also spoke on Ogbomoso- Oyo road, which he said will be completed very soon.
