Ibadan Circular Road ‘ll Change The Entire Landscape of Ibadan When Completed – Makinde
Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde has stated that his administration had already committed 10 per cent of the N30 billion earmarked for the project to enhance its take off just as he noted that the multi-million naira project when completed would change the entire landscape of Ibadan.
The governor who stated this at the weekend during a dinner with Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes and other affiliated Ibadan socio-cultural groups held at International Conference Centre, noted that the N300 billion Ibadan Circular Road project remains the single biggest investment that has come to Oyo State in the five decades.
His words; “Across the major pillars, which this administration is rested upon, Ibadan has benefitted from those activities. And the last I will talk about is the Ibadan Circular Road.
“If you go to both ends, you will see that work has begun on the interchange. If you are going towards Osun, after Badeku, you will observe that work is ongoing there as well.
“The other four bridges are not also left out and in terms of investment, the project is the largest single investment that has come to Oyo State in, at least, 50 years.
“Right now, the government has committed 10 per cent of the resources that will be needed for the project, which is well above N30bn. So, in terms of volume, it is a project that will be worth more than N300bn. When we complete it, it will change the landscape”, he added.
He explained that those who reside around the Akobo axis can testify to the fact that the second bridge “we did on that axis was magical. It is the same magic you will see when we complete the first phase of Ibadan Circular road.
“And what this means is that all the trailers coming into the inner part of Ibadan to destroy our roads will not be plying the routes again. So, when the express road is completed, they will be using the routes so that we can fix our inner roads including Oke-adu, Beere, Molete and others.’’
