THE Ekiti State government has commenced the rehabilitation of deplorable roads in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, a step which, it said, is in line with the ‘operation no-potholes’ of the Kayode Fayemi-led administration.
Speaking with reporters during an inspection tour of the roads, the Permanent Secretary in the State Ministry of Works, Mr. Bamidele Agbede, said the rehabilitation work is sequel to the directive of Governor Fayemi that all roads in a state of disrepair be rehabilitated.
Agbede assured that rehabilitation works will be completed within three weeks so that commuters can have a new lease of life plying the roads.
He listed the roads under rehabilitation as including Ekiti Parapo Pavilion-NTA- Baptist High School road, Baptist – Ijigbo road, Ijigbo- Ikere road, Ikere -Oja Oba road and Oja Oba – Adebayo- Adehun road.
Others are Ajibade lane-Oke Ila-Housing road, Olora-Adebayo road, Okeyinmi-Stadium road, Nova-Basiri road, and Delight- Mobil road.
“We are on NTA road now. Most of the roads in Ado-Ekiti are not motorable as at present, particularly all the roads in the interior. The governor has approved that we have to put these roads on track. We are fixing them now. When they finish this road, we intend to move to some other areas to ensure that the roads in the streets of Ado-Ekiti are motorable…”
