Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN on Wednesday 14th March, 2018 begged the youths of Ondo South Senatorial District to cooperate with contractors and security personnel that would be deployed to construct the virgin 51 kilometer Araromi Seaside-Akodo-Lekki Road for early and seamless completion.

He asked them to shun activities that would cause situations that might give rise to negative reports on the project.

Akeredolu, who spoke during the flag-off of the construction of the road at Araromi in Ilaje Local Government Area, said the road would not only bring tremendous benefits to the people of the area, but would also link other Niger Delta States.

Governor Akeredolu said: “The attendant socio-economic benefits which the completion of this road will bring are considerable. There will be an unprecedented influx of visitors to our state through this route.

” The sons and daughters of these communities too will no longer have excuses not to visit as frequently as possible. Economic activities will improve and real wealth will be created for the benefit of our people.”
It will be recalled that the Memorandum of Understanding between the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) and the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (OSOPADEC) for the construction of the Araromi Seaside-Akodo-Lekki Road was signed on April 5, 2017.

Akeredolu, while describing the flag-off of the road construction as historical, assured the people that the project would not suffer the fate others hurriedly conceived to achieve parochial political ends.
He said: “The knowledge of the indispensability of a link road between our coastal communities and Lagos, the commercial capital of the country, propel this Administration to ensure that this construction does not only take off, but we are also reassuring our people that we shall be back to commission it in due course.”

Chairman of the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, Mr. Gbenga Edema, hailed Governor Akeredolu for opening up the road to facilitate the economic development of the State Southern Senatorial District.

Edema confidently proclaim that “the hands of Akeredolu which laid the foundation of the road shall also complete it.”

Chairman of the NDDC, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, gave the assurance that the project would not be abandoned. He added that NDDC was not in competition with any State Government, but always ready to partner with them for their socio-economic development.
He said: “I want to urge the people of Ondo State to discard the notion that NDDC does not complete projects. I want to assure you that all the project embarked upon by the commission will be completed.”
