Extensive rehabilitation of the 32Km Sango-Ojodu Abiodun road has begun as the Ogun State Government set to complete the N70m abandoned project.
Prince Dapo Abiodun, few days ago directed that immediate rehabilitation should begin on the road which was awarded and abandoned by the immediate past administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun.
The road, which cut across various border communities between Lagos and Ogun State has been in the state of comatose before the emergence of the present administration.
According to the Governor, the road remained one of his top priorities as soon as the rainy season goes down.
The road was awarded at a cost of N12bn in 2012 and the immediate past administration later raised the budget to N70bn with N22bn already expended on 5-flyover bridges along that road.
The state government lamented that the socio-economic activities along the axis had been greatly affected due to the neglect of the road based on claim of paucity of funds by the previous government.
Residents along the road, in reaction, commended Abiodun for his quick response.
