The Osun state government on Tuesday, 11th of April ordered the immediate closure of Ife-Ede Road for three weeks as construction activities commenced on a section of the road in Ile-Ife.
In a statement obtained in Osogbo signed by Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson for the governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke, the directive followed the inspection of the area by the governor.
The statement said Adeleke who was taken around the road and the collapsing bridge, ordered the state ministry of works to mobilise to the road and fix it without delay.
Rasheed also said the ministry had mobilised to the site for the commencement of the construction work.
The statement to read a few “This is to inform the general public that there will be construction activities at Elewe eran area, along old Ife-Ede Road. All motorists plying this route are therefore enjoined to bear with us during the cost of the construction.”
I really hope for a new Osun state, a new dawn, and a new season.
