Un­com­pleted Ijebu-ode roads

The Punch - - EDITORIAL -

Sher­iffdeen Tella, Olabisi On­a­banjo Univer­sity, Ago-iwoye, Ogun State: There is no com­pleted road in Ijebu-ode and we were in­formed that all the roads un­der con­struc­tion when then Gov­er­nor Ibikunle Amo­sun was leav­ing of­fice have been fully paid for but de­lay in com­ple­tion was due to rain.

Now that rain has gone, the con­struc­tion has not com­menced. Even the por­tion so con­structed is be­ing patched with ce­ment! What man­ner of con­struc­tion is that? Why should any­one pay fully for work in progress?

The pre­sent gov­ern­ment of Dapo Abio­dun must in­sist on full com­ple­tion of the roads be­cause now that the roads are be­ing patched by gov­ern­ment works agency could im­ply com­plic­ity. We are re­ally suf­fer­ing in Ije­buode as there is no pos­i­tive div­i­dend of democ­racy on ground. Our si­lence should not be taken for docil­ity and stu­pid­ity, please.
