Mr. Lanre Adeleke, the contractor handling the reconstruction of the Ibadan-Iwo-Osogbo road, has assured the people of the timely completion of the project being co-funded by the Osun and Oyo State governments.
Adeleke, who spoke while receiving monarchs from Iwo Federal Constituency led by the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, at the site of the project, also said before the reconstruction work would commence, there would be patching of bad portions to ease the plight of commuters.
Adeleke said; “By the time we are done with the construction of the road, the time of movement between Ibadan and Iwo will be 25 minutes and from Iwo to Osogbo it will be 23 minutes, this is a 91-kilometer road being funded by Oyo and Osun governments under a collaborative effort called ‘The Alternative funding approach.’
“The two states have shown commitment. The contract has been awarded to our organization, so we are good to go. We are going to deliver the road in 18 months, which is the duration of the contract,” he stated.
Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, commended the governors of Oyo and Osun states, Seyi Makinde and Adegboyega Oyetola, respectively, for their commitment towards the project and that the construction has built a strong relationship between Osun and Oyo states.
