Ede Unique Club, an NGO, has appealed to Governo. Adeboyega Oyetola to ensure immediate reconstruction of the major road passing through Ede township in Osun.
The group said the reconstruction of the all-important Akoda – Oke Gada road across three local government areas would save lives and reduce the untold hardships being experienced by people in the communities.
Dr Gbadebo Ayinde made the appeal in Ede on Saturday during the grand reception organised by the group for four of its members who were recently elevated in their respective careers.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the celebrators are ; Prof. Dhkru Yagboyaju; Mr Musbau Bello , Assitant Comptroller of Immigration ; Prof. Mukaila Alimi; and CP Akinwale Abass.
NAN reports that Yagboyaju was elevated to the position of a professor of political science while Abass was also elevated to the position of Commissioner of Police in Benue State .
Ayinde, a former member of House of Representatives, commended the present administration for its determined efforts at restoring sanity in the nation’s psyche after decades of national malaise.
” We, as a registered non-governmental organisation, however, decry the deplorable state of the major road passing through the length of Ede township, the Akoda – Oke Gada road.
” We are appealing to the Osun Government to ensure immediate reconstruction of this all-important road,” he said.
According to him, the urgent widening and reconstruction of the Akoda-Oke Gada road which passes through three local government areas in Osun State would save lives and reduce the untold hardships being experienced by people in the areas.
He said that many innocent lives and limbs had been lost while motorists and motorcyclists tried to navigate through potholes on the narrow road.
According to the former lawmaker, Ede is among the most prominent and biggest towns in Osun and therefore deserves better attention by the present administration in the state.
Speaking at the event, Maj.-Gen. Kamar Yusuf, the chairman, commended the group for its numerous humanitarian and selfless service being rendered to the people of Osun.
Yusuf said the grand reception had brought great minds in the state together towards channelling a common ground for socioeconomic development.
He appealed to members not to relent in putting in their level best towards making meaningful contributions to the community.
Earlier, Sen. Ademola Adeleke, commended the group for organising the event as the state prepare for the gubernatorial election in July.
Adeleke, therefore, appealed to dignitaries at the event to emulate the good characters of the celebrators, who have paid their dues and also contributed to human and social development.
NAN reports that the event was attended by prominent dignitaries including the Timi of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal
