  • oyo state govt should help the people of ejikeye,dalegan road that link to adegbayi being abadon project. we are beg our executive governor seyi makinde to help us out

    • Seyi Makinde kindly set up a committee for road management. We have uncountable potholes at Challenge road linking Ringroad and other places. Most of the roads are having different types of triber marks. The Road linking to challenge roundabout from Methodist was done some months ago. The triber marks on that road now can not be describe. Setting up a group to be in charge of all these would help. Thanks

  • This is unfortunate. What about olodo bank to orita odan to olorunda. What about Oki , jenriyin, orita odan to olorunda.

    These roads is a big business development area for the state

  • So the neglected Odogbo Ojoo – Aroromakinde, Arulogun road Is not part of Ibadan?
    Because I really don’t understand why it’s taking the oyo state govt forever to get the road done all these years😏😏😏

  • It sad that Oyo state government generate a lot of revenue from bodija Isopako road and still neglect the bad state of road. Anyway as long as Mr governor pays salaries we are good.

    • We appreciate the good works of His Excellence, the people of Apete Yidi road to Olomo needs you assistance. The road is in deplorable state.

  • Please don’t forget boluwaji and sanyo road it’s lead to olunde and soka axis, please the road is really bad

  • Well the road mentainance problem is made serious by the absence of functional local government administration which should have been responsible for mentainance of local government roads.

    • You are correct. After spending billions on the road repair, lack of adequate maintenance will get it spoilt in no time and will be waiting to be repaired with the money that can be used to fix some other roads.

  • Thank you his Excellence Governor Seyi Makinde for the approved roads to be repair but please kindly add Apete-Ariyibi arola to the above list, Ariyibi-Arola is one of the most terrible roads in ibadan even taxi are now avoiding to ply this road, pleas help us do something about it.

  • We kindly appeal to Dr Seyi Makinde to help us do the road that joined Akala Express road that goes to Accademy-Idirooko- odeku- Maganna under Oluyole LGA

  • Seyin makinde should remember us in lbarapa oo,Our Road from iddo to eruwa,and eruwa to Abeokuta express junction,pls.

  • Oyo government, please extend consideration of roads rehabilitation to Iyana Church -Wakajaye- Ogungbade area. The road is so deplorable.
    Thanks and kudos for your activities.

  • Na wah oooo.
    So, Badeku/Adekanra/Jago is not part of Ibadan?

    It was during Gov. Bola Ige era that the road was last touched.

    Please, extend this gesture to us in this part of Ibadan, your excellence 🙏
    Please, we deserve at least, some dividend of democracy in this area. We cannot afford to live in the city.

  • Kindly remember the following Roads too please:
    1. Wofun Junction – Exide Battery – Kute – Jenriyin Roads Lagelu LGA;

    2. Kute – Alao-Akala Estate – Akobo Ojurin Roads in Lagelu LGA;

    3. Taska Junction – Liberty Academy – Bota – Odeku – Idi Ayunre – Abeokuta Roads (Off Alao Akala Express Way) in Oluyole LGA;

    5. Academy (off Lagos Ibadan Express Way) – Olomi – Olunde – Ayegun – Olojuoro Roads;

    6. And a host of other Roads in the city, please.

    Thanks and regards…

  • There are roads that needs immediate intervention,Ojo Arulogun road is one! The communities have tried their best.The state government should come to our aid! We voted for a better governance

  • Hasnt this administration heard the incessant SOS calls from the residents of Elebu as regards the serious deplorable conditions in which their roads are? I believe Oyo State government is not slow of hearing or completely deaf. Please do something commendable as quickly as possible about these roads to alleviate the suffering of the residents of Elebu. Also, remember Jericho, Nihort, Idi ishin, Baptist Grammar School, Elenushonsho and Up Jesus Roads

  • I don’t understand why all the good roads need to be reconstructed or dualized when they are already dualized. This is cheer waste of resources when lots of local govt roads remained untouched. Soka to faruku road, Soka needs a new outlet apart from the expressway link; oleyo road , elebu road to mention but a few. Even Arisekola way by Ayefele radio station is dilapidated.

    • Oyo State Government,ably led by indefatigable Engineer Seyi Makinde should help us fix Aroromakinde _Gospel Faith Mission Church Road off Igbo-Oloyin road. We are a law abiding community with not less than twenty thousand residents therein. We have adopted community self help, donating money and materials so many times but unfortunately,the rains,at its seasons, often wash off all our efforts with our hopes dashed on the only road that serve such a teeming populated community. Aroromakinde community deserves the Governor’s immediate attention. Coincidentally,here is the community that shears a good name with our ever functional Governor Makinde.More power to your elbows,Sir.Thanks in advance from all of us.

  • I don’t understand why all the good roads need to be reconstructed or dualized when they are already dualized. This is cheer waste of resources when lots of local govt roads remained untouched. Soka to faruku road, Soka needs a new outlet apart from the expressway link; oleyo road , elebu road to mention but a few. Even Arisekola way by Ayefele radio station is dilapidated. Pls do something. Tnx

    • Thank governor Seyi makinde but you have forgotten wire and cable road Apata,i hope you have not forgotten that you personally came through that road for your campaign for your first tenure and we voted for you because you promised to put the road in shape,my honourable governor please it will be injustice if you completely neglect your promise to the people who look up to you with great expectations

  • I wonder what Oyo State Government is doing to fix Alao Akala Way to Wofun Junction. This road if fixed would go a long way to ease traffic congestion in General Gas/Iyana Church Road.
    Governor Seyi Makinde, the ball is in your court. Please play this ball well.

  • The oyo state government should pls do something about the roads under oluyole local govt and it environs. The liberty academy road – odeku- moganna- quarry is really bad. So also the elebu road and also the ayegun oleyo road are very bad aswell. The govt shouldn’t focus only on roads in the heart of Ibadan. They should also focus on this inner roads too.
