‘Engr. Seyi Makinde is walking his talk and I am personally impressed that His Excellency is making me proud as a friend and worthy leader of our State.
‘Look at the road yourself, you will see that the work is progressing steadily especially in the last two months or so. I know that the road will continue even during the rainy season to meet the targeted completion period.
‘Our people are cooperating with the contractor handling the project and that’s a great thing for us. It is now left to the contractor to ensure quality works continue in order to get value for the funding of the project.
‘Our amiable Governor should continue to monitor the road as he has been doing with a view of ensuring quality works are done on it. Notwithstanding the rainy season, our people want to see that the work continues to improve the quality of life and economic growth of the area,’ Sanusi added.
The Alakanran in his brief comment prayed God to strengthen the Governor to finish the project on time, just as he appreciated the Chairman and the management of Ona Ara Local Government for the support towards making the project a reality.
Binuyo said even as the road is yet to be completed, ‘we are already seeing significant changes in our environment. On behalf of the landlords and landladies, let me commend His Excellency for his giant strides in the State and particularly our ongoing road network.’
Also commenting, Mobolaji remarked that ‘as morning shows the day, the outgoing Omituntun 1.0 will be a child’s play when we are done with Omituntun 2.0 in the year 2027. The Governor deserves a pat on the back for his extending his gesture to our area. This road is a dream come true and we can only implore the Governor to continue his strides in making our State a better place for all to live in,’ he stressed.
