Motorists plying Abeokuta/Lagos Old Road have been warned to be mindful of the bad state of the commercial and ever busy road to avoid unnecessary road crashes.

The Chairman, Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State,Hon Adesina Sikiru Adisa gave the warning when baring his mind during an interview session with journalists in his office on the bad state and the approval given to the Ogun State Government by the Federal Government to fix the badly shaped road. 

People should avoid night traveling, most especially those who are not conversant with the road . For those who are not new to the road should minimize their speed as speed thrills but kills. " ----- the Chairman reiterated.

The Local Govt boss enjoined people to pass through the normal channel of the road, instead of making use of wrong way ( one-way)  which has wreaked a lot of havock on lives and properties.

"His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun,CON, could have fixed the road but for the hiccups surrounding the issue of fixing the road as result of the refusal of the former Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fasola to give approval to the Ogun State Government but thank God approval has been given now, so work will soon commence in harness " --- Hon Adesina assured.

According to the council's helmsman,his administration had done a lot of palliative works on the road severally, not minding that it is Federal road .

"Along Wasimi  axis, there is a particular portion that has become waterlogged and has made that portion unpassable for motorist, forcing people to make use of wrong way. Though in our own little way , we have cleared the blocked underground drainage to allow free flow of water around that place but our efforts at that portion remain to be seen for now . However, we will remain  relentless until we achieve success." ---- he stated.

" I want to use this medium to express my gratitude to Lafarge and Dangote Cement factories for their unflinching support to the government during palliative works on the road."---- he said.

According to the Chairman, the bad state of the road has affected the council Internally Generated Revenue as many traders always hide under the disguise of the bad road by refusing to remit necessary taxes, trade permit to the coffin of the council.
