Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has inaugurated the first dualised road in the ancient town of Iseyin as part of his administration’s urban renewal programme.

The residents of the town, who trooped out in their large number for the ceremony, could not hide their joy as they expressed appreciation to the Governor for improving their socio-economic lives through the dualisation of the township road.

The road, which passes through Iseyin town, has all the road furniture, including street light, traffic light, drainage and others.

Speaking at the ceremony, Ajimobi said the project was in line with his administration’s policy of ensuring that entry points to all major towns in the state were dualised.

He said the dualisation of the road would improve the socio-economic development of the area and by extension the quality of lives of the people.

The Governor said the reconstruction of Iseyin-Okeho road would also begin as soon as all the contractual arrangements were concluded.

He commended the people of the area for voting for the All Progressives Congress (APC) during the Presidential and National Assembly elections on March 28.
