Addressing the press on Wednesday after the State Executive Council Meeting held at the Conference Hall of the Governor’s Office in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State Capital, Rt Honourable Taiwo Olatubosun expressed the readiness of the Governor Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji to kick start the construction of the first ever ring road project in the State, adding that the Ekiti State government has already approved the cost variation for work to begin on the project. 

Olatubosun while interacting further with journalists revealed that, the ring road project targeted at commencing from Iworoko Ekiti through Are, Afao, Araromi Obo, Ekiti Cargo Airport and terminates at Aso Ayegunle, Ijan road, was first awarded in November, 2020.

Corroborating the opening speech given by the Information Commissioner, Rt Honourable Taiwo Olatubosun in the State; the Honourable Commissioner for Works, Mr. Sola Adebayo, explained that due to the outbreak of COVID-19 around  the period the contract was awarded, the execution of the project was stalled. 

Mr. Adebayo further explained that by the time the effects of the virus subsided, the prices of construction materials had gone up astronomically due to volatility in foreign exchange rates, double-digit inflation and fluctuation in market price indices.

Adebayo who described the road as a top priority to the State Government, also noted that it would serve the cargo airport and the Ekiti Knowledge Zone, adding that it would considerably decongest traffic in Ado Ekiti metropolis as well as produce a lot of other socio-economic benefits for residents and the State in general.

He said that the road would be completed between 18 and 20 months.

In her own remarks, the State Commissioner for Environment, Chief (Mrs) Tosin Aluko-Ajisafe disclosed that the State Executive Council also approved the purchase of three 4X2 Hook Arm Garbage trucks and 20 single CBM Dino Bins to boost efforts at keeping the State clean.

Chief Aluko said that the approval was given to facilitate medium and long-term measures to ensure that the sanitation situation across the State improves and guarantee epidemic free environment.

The State Commissioner for Information, Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun described the approvals as a manifestation of the commitment of the administration of Governor Biodun Oyebanji to the rapid development of the State.

Rt. Hon. Olatunbosun noted that the administration has touched all its six pillars of governance in the last one year, stressing that the rapid development process would not only attract investors but would also make the environment a better place for residents.
