THE Minister of Transport, Rotimi Chibueke Amaechi has commended the Osun State government for embarking on the construction of federal road infrastructure in the state.
Amaechi said the initiative was an indication of effective management of the meagre resources accrued to the state.
Amaechi, who spoke shortly after an inspection tour of federal roads under construction from the Gbongan axis to the Kwara boundary in Ila-Odo, lamented that the good intention of the government had been left to suffer.
The Minister, who refused to be categorical about the expected relief on the work done by the Osun government, however said detailed report about what he saw on ground would be communicated to the presidency for action.
He said the inspection would also take his team to other southwest states.
Explaining the focus of his ministry, he said serious attention would be placed on the development of the rail transportation network to enhance movement of goods and humans.
The Minister also visited the Moshood Abiola International Airport being constructed at Ido Osun, Egbedore local council of the state where he was briefed on the level of work done and the challenges facing the project.
