Akoko communities laud Gov over planned Akungba, Okerigbo road dualisation

From Jimoh Ahmed
Ikare Akoko.

The  pronouncement of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, that the state government has designed  and included the Akungba road dualisation project, including the dreaded Okerigbo Hill in the  2022 budget has attracted commendations from Akoko community leaders and indigenes.

Akungba Akoko has for some period witnessed numerous road accidents which had claimed many lives especially on the Okerigbo section of the road.

Many students of   Adekunle Ajasin University as well as traders lost their lives while  lot of properties were destroyed on the road.

A Supare Akoko community leader and member of Akoko Security and Development Forum, Retired  General  Joshua Olorunfemi, who lauded the state government on the planned dualisation of Okerigbo Hill as it was done to Okealabojuto in Ikare said this will reduce accidents in Akungba as was the case in Ikare Akoko.

Olorunfemi posited  that the project if embarked upon by the  state government,  will go a long way to enhance socio economic growth of Akokoland.

The Seriki Musulumi of Akungbaland, Chief  Saliu Awesu, described the governor’s pronouncements as gifts of the new year to the entire Akungba Akoko community that had lost their love ones and properties to motor accidents.

A legal practitioner from Okeagbe Akoko, Bayo Awe,  reminded the governor to make the project one of his legacies that Akoko indigenes will be referring to after his tenure.
