Date: 2018-06-22
NAN Indications had emerged that the Kwara State government is set to commence work on the rehabilitation of Omu-Aran Township roads in Irepodun LGA, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

A combined team of officials and engineers from the State Ministry of Work and Transport and Kwara State Road Maintenance Agency (KWARMA) were in the community on Thursday to carry out markings and surveying of the roads.

It would be recalled that the State Governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed, had indicated the governmentís interest to rehabilitate the roads during the commissioning of a 2.4 kilometer road in the community some months ago.

The said road, which was handled by Nigeria Army Engineers Corps, was initiated by Hon Funke Adedoyin, a member representing Isin, Ekiti, Irepodun and Oke-Ero Federal Constituency from the State.

Ahmed had disclosed that the cost for the rehabilitation of the roads was already captured in the 2018 state appropriation.

Efforts toward the rehabilitation of the roads was also re-echoed by the Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki in a message during the thanksgiving and funeral rite of the late Olomu of Omu-Aran, Oba Charles Ibitoye, few weeks ago.

A NAN correspondent who monitored the surveying and markings processes listed the affected roads as Olomu Palace-Agamo roads, Seun-Tosin-Roundabout road, as well as Taiwo roads in the community.

A member of the team who preferred anonymity said "work on the rehabilitation of the roads would commence very soon and earlier than expected".

"The markings and surveying of the roads is a directive from the Commissioner for Work and Transport and Director-general, KWARMA.

"I can confirm that the government is set to fulfill it's promise to get the roads rehabilitated earlier than the expectation of the people," the source said.

Chief Bisi Adeyemi, President, Omu-Aran Development Association, (ODA) in a remark, said the association had not relented in putting pressure on the government over the road issue.

"The government had few months ago promised to look into the issue of the deplorable state of the roads.

"We are very grateful for this new development toward getting the roads rehabilitated.

"We are hoping and appealing at the same time to the government to expedite action on its commencement and completion without delay," Adeyemi added.
