Fix Gbongan-Ode Omu-Osogbo road, NARTO begs FG     


Babatunde Fashola

The chairman, south-west chapter of the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), Alhaji Bola Ogunyele, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Governor of Osun State, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola, and Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, to rehabilitate the deteriorating Gbongan-Ode Omu-Osogbo expressway.
In a statement, Ogunyele raised the alarm that the deplorable state of the road was not only causing accidents with numerous causalities but also negatively affecting the economy of Osun and its farmers, especially.
He recalled that the spokesman of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Agnes Ogungbemi, in January 2021, gave statistics that over 194 people were involved in accidents along Gbongan-Ode Omu-Osogbo Road, where 112 people sustained varying degrees of injury and 15 persons died.
Ogunyele said: “I appeal to Oyetola, the Federal Controller of Works in Osun and Fashola to come to the aid of transporters plying the axis by rehabilitating the road.
“The road is a death trap for commuters and criminal elements have taken advantage of the bad spots to unleash mayhem and dispossess people of their valuables.”
