See The State of The Road Of Ibadan Circular Road That Oyo State Government Paid ₦67billion For - Photos

The Governor of Oyo State, Mr Seyi Makinde visited the Ibadan Circular Road, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Thursday and he was disappointed at the state of work and what he met on ground. This is according to him after the state government had paid a whopping sum of ₦67billion for the take off of the roads.

He issued a stop-work order in respect of the construction of the 32 kilometres road awarded by the past administration since May 2017 at the cost of #67 billion.

The Governor emphasised the significance of the Circular Road, declaring that the road was of utmost importance to the economy of Oyo state.

He also stated that his administration remained determined to build infrastructures that will help to expand the economy of the State.

He said: "Basically, what we saw was not encouraging. The agreement was signed in 2017, almost three years now. The work done so far was at 5 per cent or 5.5 per cent. Also, this was a concession of about N65 billion for a 32-kilometre road. We just felt we need to pull back a little bit, look at things holistically and then take a decision in order to move forward.

"The circular road is extremely important to the economy of Oyo State and if a contractor can only achieve 5 per cent in three years, you can imagine how many years it will take to complete the road."

It would be recalled that the 32-kilometre road was awarded by the immediate past administration of Senator Abiola Ajimobi at the cost of N67 billion.

While speaking at the site, Governor Makinde expressed disappointment and dissatisfaction at the level of work done by the contractor, ENL Consortium Limited, saying he was unhappy and unimpressed with what he observed on the site.

The Governor promised to meet with the contractors in order to review the work plan for major development.
