Ogun Lacks Fair Share Of Roads Rehabilitation, Abiodun Tells FG

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has told the Federal Government that the state has not had a fair share in the rehabilitation of roads.

Abiodun called on the Federal Government to reflect federal character on road rehabilitation in the country.

The governor urged the Federal Government to give the state special attention, particularly in terms of road rehabilitation.

Abiodun said the state deserved better attention than it is currently getting from the FG for its roads, due to its strategic location as the industrial capital of Nigeria.

The governor said this when he received the Executive Chairman of the Federal Character Commission, Dr. Muheeba Dankaka, who led the management team of the Commission on a courtesy call to his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Abiodun maintained that the FG should give roads in the state special attention.

Abiodun pointed out the importance of good road network in the socio-economic development of any nation.

Abiodun noted that infrastructure remained one of the factors other sectors depend on to operate effectively.

He appreciated the Commission for doing a good job of ensuring fairness and equal distribution of infrastructure in the country
