Makinde, who said this on Wednesday at the flag-off ceremony of the road, promised to, upon completion, name the highway after late Akala, who passed on a few months ago, to immortalise him.

The governor said late Akala contributed immensely to the growth and development of Oyo state during his tenure.

According to the governor, Akala has scheduled to flag off the road construction before his demise.

“Somebody would have been here today with me for this flag-off, but God decided to call him before this date. I spoke to him and mentioned it to his church that day. This is someone who has contributed immensely to the growth and development of Oyo State.
