Ekiti Gets N7.6billion for Roads Construction and Rehabilitation

Ekiti State government has approved a total sum of N7.6billion for the construction and rehabilitation of roads across the State.

This was announced by the state’s Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Hon. Akin Omole in a statement he released on Thursday.

According to him, at the weekly EXCO meeting, N921, 242,552.43 was approved for the construction of Ikole township roads while N4, 322,511,502.70 was also approved for the construction of the Ado/Iworoko road.

N2,329,440,507.94 was approved for the construction of bus terminals and pedestrian walkway/drain covers along Ijigbo road to Okeiyinmi roundabout in the state capital, Ado-Ekiti. The contractors handling the roads have been given a timeline of ten (10) and twelve (12) months to complete the projects.

It states: “The approval for the award of contracts which followed due process and diligent vetting by the Bureau of Public Procurement is a demonstration of the commitment of Governor Kayode Fayemi’s administration to advance the economic and industrial revolution in the state. These strategic road projects will augur well for the enabling environment for businesses and investments to thrive, and the safety and security of lives and property.”

The state government, therefore, solicited the support and understanding of residents, motorists, and commuters throughout the period of the construction works.

“We wish to also remind the general public that adherence to traffic diversions and regulations would assist in ensuring timely completion of the projects,” it added.
