Ondo state governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has revealed that the federal government would dualise the Akure-Ikere carriage way.
Akeredolu disclosed this during a visit to Ifedore, Akure North and Akure South Local Government Areas in Ondo Central Senatorial District.
Stating that the Federal Government already completed the design for the project, he said the road contract would be awarded as soon as the 2019 budget was approved.
He added that the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, assured that the contract would be awarded before the end of first term.
“The work we are interested in embarking on is the Akure-Ikere dual carriageway, but we cannot because it is a federal project.
“Earlier, we made several efforts to get the road done; even Fashola intervened and suggested that since Ikere was a dual carriageway, then Akure to Ikere should also be a dual carriageway.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the All Progressives Congress (APC) won 23 of the 26 seats in the recently concluded House of Assembly election.
Speaking, the Chairman of Ifedore Local Government Area, Alex Oladimeji, commended the governor infrastructure projects in the area, while also assuring of the governor of continuous support of the people.
Similarly, the Chairman of APC in Ondo State, Ade Adetimehin, appreciated the people for their support during the House of Assembly election.
