The Chairman, Transition Committee, Ijebu Ode Local Government area of Ogun State, Engr. Olugbenga OLUGBILE, has assured the people, living in the local government, of speedy completion of roads,  being embarked upon by the Ogun State Government in the council area. 


Engr. OLUGBILE gave this assurance, recently, while  on the inspection tour of certain roads, under construction,  by the Ogun State Public Works Agency (OGPWA), at Ashafa/Aiyegun;  Fusigboye/Molipa; and Degun axis of Ijebu Ode. 

The Chairman visited the locations, based on the plea of the Traders, selling along those routes, who had earlier complained of low patronage,  as a result of bad roads which had become  impassable, due to the ongoing construction works.

The Chairman, who appreciates the Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo ABIODUN for the roads construction, therefore, appealed to the Traders and residents, to desist from the act of dumping refuse indiscriminately in the drainages and burning of refuse on the roads.


He enjoined them to support government in their respective capacities, Saying "I urge you to also look at what you can do in your individual capacities to help the government. Do not leave everything to Government, as government cannot do it alone," he concluded. 

In their remarks, the Project Managers, Engr. JAMES and Engr. UMARU, promised to urgently resolve the issues raised by the Traders, listing some of the challenges being faced, as faulty equipment which, according to him, had already been fixed, and the need to lay water pipelines by Ogun State Water Corporation.
