Hope Rises On Ado-Akure Roads’ Dualisation As Minister Visits Fashola 

The Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN has said that  the proposed Ado-Akure roads dualisatiin has not been abandoned.
Fashola gave this  assurance when the  Minister of State for Transportation, Prince Ademola Adegoroye, called at his office in Abu
Adegoroye, who was making his second visit to the Works Minister in one month, said the poor state of the road has necessitated an urgent action from the federal government.
He said the people of Ondo and Ekiti States have continued to experience too much pain on the bad road and therefore need a respite.
He told Fashola that his people would not let him rest at home until work begins on the road, promising to keep visiting the Works Minister once every week until the project takes off.
Recall that the  project for the dualisation of the road was awarded by the federal government to Dantata and Sawoe in 2020 for N22 billion but the contractor has not commenced the project due to lack of mobilisation from the government.
The Transportation Minister said the Akure – Ado road project would be the major benefit of both Ondo and Ekiti States from the unprecedented 77 road projects embarked upon by the Muhammadu Buhari Administration and currently ongoing across the country.
Adegoroye also saluted the Works Minister for his hard work, forthrightness and determination in ensuring the growth of road infrastructure in the country.
Responding, Fashola reaffirmed his earlier comment that lack of funds had made it difficult for the government to begin the project, saying the road has not been abandoned.
Thanking Adegoroye for showing genuine concerns over the project, the Works Minister promised his colleague that he will do everything within his power to ensure that the project takes off in no distant time.
