Makinde pledges to deliver 75km of 110km circular road by 2023
Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, yesterday, said his administration would turn Ibadan into a 21st century city by executing developmental projects across the city, promising to complete 75km of 110km Circular Road By 2023.
At the inauguration of the 2021/2023 Executive Council of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), led by its President General, Prince Oluyemisi Adeaga, at Oke-Aremo, Ibadan, the governor said council is an influential association in the state and that he believed in its ideals.
“CCII’s position on germane issues about our state has always turned out to be the right one because our best, be it intellectual, spiritual, or social are in CCII. So, I want to beg you, if you have any idea and you want us to provide access on it, tell us. We will do it.
“We have roughly two years to re-image Ibadan and we are already on that path. We commissioned the remodeled Lekan Salami Stadium when many states are talking about insecurity, kidnapping, banditry and insurgency. But we were at Adamasingba till 10 p.m. A foreign club was with us and we were not afraid.
“In terms of infrastructure, the Circular Road is one project that would change Ibadan’s landmark. It is 110kms, but before our tenure ends in 2023, 75kms of it would be delivered. If we can vividly recollect, there used to be a bus terminal at Ogunpa. We also want to recreate the idea with bus terminals at Challenge, Iwo Road and Ojoo. Many are happy with the light up project we have done; yet it is not up to 30 per cent of the 156kms of roads in Ibadan.”
