SEC lauds ODSG over infrastructural devt

The Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has commended the Ondo State Government for infrastructural development that could stand the test of time for the betterment of residents of the state.

The SEC, which embarked on inspection visits to monitor the construction of some projects in critical areas of the economy across the three senatorial districts of the state, asked the government not to rest  on its oars for more lasting legacy.

Mallam Abubakar Habib, the Assistant Director, Monitoring and Evaluation in SEC, who led the SEC team to move round to see some completed and ongoing  infrastructural development embarked  upon by the current administration in the state, said the exercise was aimed  to accertain that the projects were executed fully to their specifications.

Abubakar lauded  the State Government for timely completion of Ore overhead bridge, and quality of work done in all the projects inspected, tasking the government to expedite action on the ongoing construction of Teaching Hospital at Ondo and Akure and the dualisation of Ikare Township Road.

He, therefore, promised that the Commission would continue to assist and cooperate with the state government on more infrastructural development.

In his remarks, the state Commissioner for Finance, Mr Wale Akinterinwa, explained that for decades residents and travellers moving towards the four-junctions intersection at Ore, in Odigbo Local Government Area of the State, used to be gripped by some awful fears  either as drivers or passengers in the vehicle.

Akinterinwa added that , even passersby who walked beside the road or crossing to other side might be knocked down by oncoming vehicles, which according to him, the past goverment could not solve.

He explained that the State Government embarked  on the Ore Flyover for the benefits of the people of the state and the coming generations and noted the project had reduced the occurrence of accident to the barest  minimum,  boosting the economic activities of the state, as well as addressing  traffic problems  in the area.

Also speaking, the State Commissioner for Infrastructure, Lands and Housing, Raimi Aminu, explained that adequate infrastructural development was sine-qua-non to the establishment of sustainable industries and entrepreneurship development in any society.

Aminu stated that in the past five years, Governor Akeredolu  had changed the narratives of huge infrastructural deficit at the critical sectors of the economy, saying  that the three Senatorial Districts of the state had benefited from different  life-changing projects.
