The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State has lauded Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), to construct a 50 kilometer road to link Ondo State with Lagos. The road is expected to connect Araromi seaside in Ilaje Local Government of Ondo State with Akodo in Ibeju-Lekki Local Government Area of Lagos state.
The Party made this known in a press release by its Publicity Secretary, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, in Akure, the state capital.
Adesanya said, “this is laudable and remarkable, because in less than 100 days of the APC administration in the State, the Governor can attract such a monumental project to the state.” The first and only MoU ever signed by NDDC with any state government within it’s mandate area (the Niger-Delta region). The people of Ilaje and the Niger-Delta areas of the state have rolled out drums to thank Arakunrin Akeredolu and NDDC for this laudable stride. This 50 km road is expected to be completed within two and a half years.
“Once this project is completed, the people in area and it’s environs can now travel to Lagos by road in less than an hour, as against the usual 4 – 5 hours spent through other roads to Lagos. The Party therefore assured the people of the State to expect more of such laudable projects during the lifetime of the present APC/Akeredolu’s government in the State, the statement reads.
