The Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde, has, on Monday, inspected ongoing work on the Apata-Akala Expressway linking the Ibadan-Abeokuta Road and the Onipepeye-Saw-Mill Underpass, expressing satisfaction with the quality of work done on the projects so far.
Addressing journalists shortly after the inspection, Governor Makinde said the projects were in tandem with his promise to the people of the state that he would work till the last moment of his first tenure in office.
The governor expressed the belief that his government would commission a lot of projects by the end of the year, as many ongoing projects would be completed within the next few months.
Shortchange our people
He said: “As you can all see, work is ongoing. We promised the people of Oyo State that we would work for them till the last moment of this first tenure. We don’t want to shortchange our people, because we believe they must have value for their money and that is why we are out here.
“The election is behind us and we have to do the work that the people of Oyo State have given to us. I am glad that this(Akala Expressway) linkage is through and work is ongoing. We have cracked the Onipepeye Bridge project and it is just for us to move on and work is ongoing on it,” Makinde stated.

The inspection was witnessed by the Commissioner for Public Works, Infrastructure and Transport, Professor Daud Kehinde Sangodoyin; the Special Adviser to the governor on Public Works and Infrastructure, Seyi Adeleye and other government functionaries.
