Osun Cautions Against Sub-Standard Road Projects

Osogbo20Commissioning-5The era of ‘business as usual’ in the road construction sector in the State of Osun is over, as the state government will not condone sub-standard job delivery from any contractor.

This admonition was given by the Head, Special Project Unit (Office of the Governor), Abiodun Isola, while briefing journalists after a meeting with some contractors handling road jobs across the state.

He said that if the government, in spite of its lean purse, with competing demands, could strive to provide the citizenry with essential amenities, there is no excuse for any contractor to be shoddy in the execution of projects.

In his contribution, the Co-ordaining Director of the agency, Wale Ajayi, lauded the governor for his people-oriented programmes.  He urged motorists to bear with the government, especially on the Gbongan /Akoda road project.

Ajayi further said that there were so many intervention works on the road which required optimum professionalism and meticulous execution.  Road users were enjoined to always observe carefully, all road signs for their safety and that of others.

The meeting was rounded off with Isola reiterating the commitment of the Aregbesola administration to completing all the projects as soon as it is practicable for the benefit of all citizens.
