BREAKING: Oyo Govt to Fix 40km Iseyin to Oyo Road after FG Assents



The governor of Oyo state, Governor Seyi Makinde has just announced that the FG has granted the Oyo Govt permission to fix about 40km Iseyin-Oyo Road.

The Governor made this statement earlier today during his remarks at the 8th days Fidau prayer for late Alhaja Nimotalahi Alake Olayiwola, mother to Oyo state PDP Chairman, Alhaji Kunmi Mustapha in Iseyin.

Governor Makinde also revealed that preliminary works which involves survey plan of Iseyin to Ogbomosho is also underway.

It would be recalled that last year, the Governor said that Oyo state government has reached out to the federal government for permission to fix the road notwithstanding the cost.

The Governor said although it is a Federal highway, the Federal Government has warned that it won’t return the fund used in the construction if the State decides to embark on the project.




Makinde, however, said that the State will start the construction and note down every penny spent with the hope that there will, one day, be an administration that will decide to refund the money to the Oyo State Government’s coffers.

It is expected that work would begin on the said project as soon as possible as the Governor pledged to commission the road before 2023.
