The executive governor of ogun state, Prince Dapo Abiodun has commissioned the 4 km two lane dual carriage way at Oba Erinwole road Sagamu, on the 21st of November 2022 after 16 years of neglect and abandonment by the past governments.
The reconstruction of the 4 km road which started in 2020 was completed in 2022 with a well laid drainage system and state of the art streetlights.
