The governor listed some of the abandoned projects to include the Ugbo/Arogbo Bridge and Irele – Sabomi Road among others.
The Governor, who noted that the construction of the Araromi – Lekki road is very important to his administration, urged the NDDC to ensure that the road is constructed.
Governor Akeredolu spoke during a courtesy visit by the management of the NDDC, led by its Managing Director, Professor Nelson Braimbraifa, at the Governor’s office, Alagbaka, Akure.
