FG set to approve Ondo Seaport—Adegoroye

By Josephine Oguntoyinbo

The Minister for Transportation, Prince Ademola Adegoroye has assured that the proposed deep seaport in Ondo State would soon become a reality.

He made the assurance when he played host to the delegation of the Ondo State House of Assembly led by its Speaker, Oleyelogun Bamidele in his office at the Federal Ministry of Transportation, Abuja.

While stressing the importance of the seaport, the Minister promised to throw his weight behind the project in order to achieve a common goal.

Expressing displeasure over the deplorable condition of Ondo-Ado Road, Adegoroye, explained that efforts were in top gear by the Federal Government to ensure that contractors are back to site.

According to him, the contract which was awarded to Dantata and Sawoe for the dualisation of the Akure-Ado road is being looked into, saying that it would not be abandoned.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Oleyelogun Bamidele thanked President Mohammed Buhari for appointing Adegoroye as one of his Ministers, describing him as a right peg in a right hole.

Oleyelogun who informed the Minister on the plan of the 9th Assembly to come up with a legacy report which he described as first of its kind, called on the minister to continue to work for the upliftment and progress of Ondo State.

He, however, expressed joy over his contributions within the time he has spent in the office as a Minister.

The lawmakers later visited the office of the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Mr. Olusade Adesola where they commended the Ministry for maintaining sanity and cleanliness in the city of Abuja.

Oloyelogun said that Ondo State would continue to be proud of him being an indigene of the State, urging him to assist the teeming youths in terms of employment.

Other members of the House on the visit were the Minority Leader, Rasheed Elegbeleye, Parliamentary Secretary, Prince Abayomi Akinruntan, Deputy Chief whip,  Festus Akinfiranye, Olushola Oluyede and Clerk of the House, Benjamin Jaiyeola.
