As part of measures to improve the life of its citizenry, Ogun State Government has assured that every road network in the nooks and crannies of the State would be maintained by the State Public Works Agency (OGPWA).
The Consultant to the Governor on Public Works, Arch. Gbenga Akintola, stated this when he featured in a weekly programme anchored by the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, noting that, ‘’any road network whether local, state or federal that are of common interest and important to the lives of residents of the State would not be abandoned’’.
He added that continuous engagement with all agencies of government, saddled with the responsibility of managing road infrastructure had been energised to foster development and avoid duplication of duties.
He enjoined the general public to join hands with government on proper maintenance of roads across the State, so as to ensure longer lifespan, saying, siting of car wash facilities along the road without proper drains, cutting of the road and dumping of refuse in the drainages must be discouraged, as they tend to put the integrity of the road at risk.
Arch Akintola advised motorists to adhere to basic traffic rules and desist from pouring petroleum products on the asphalt surface of the road, calling on residents of the State to see road infrastructure as a collective heritage, which must be managed for posterity and development of the State.
