NSE, COREN commend Abiodun for ‘massive’ infrastructural development in Ogun State

The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) as well as the Council of Registered Engineers of Nigeria, (COREN), have commended the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun for what they described as “massive infrastructural development” going on in the State, enthusing that various road projects were going on simultaneously across the Gateway State.

Speaking at the site of the newly constructed 14-kilometer Ijebu-Ode/Epe Road, during an inspection tour of some of the road projects, former State Chairman of NSE, Engr. Ahmed Apampa hailed the Governor for turning the State into an industrial destination of choice.

He said: “We have no doubt that this will contribute to a very great extent to the economic development of our dear State.; in fact, the governor has done beautifully well in turning the State to economic hub of the country, especially through infrastructural development.”

Engr. Apampa urged the Governor not to relent on his oars but expedite actions towards the completion of all the ongoing projects, including those inherited from the previous administration.

In his own remarks, Chairman of COREN in the State, Engr. Mutiu Odesanya eulogized the Governor for not compromising quality in all the projects embarked upon by his administration, calling for constant maintenance of infrastructure in the State.

Conducting the engineers round the projects, the State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Ade Akinsanya, revealed that the road which had already been fitted with security posts, street lights, toll points at both ends and other road furniture, was set to be commissioned by President Muhammadu Buhari in a few weeks’ time.

The Commissioner further disclosed that a flyover, which would aid free vehicular movement into Ijebu-Ode, was almost completed, ditto for the Gateway City-Gate and monument located at the Sagamu-Papalanto/Abeokuta Interchange, which, he said, would give travellers and visitors alike a beautiful sight to behold, as they make their way to the State Capital and other parts of the State.

According to Engr. Akinsanya, the government planned to construct a police station and offices for other agencies, including TRACE, State Emergency Ambulance Service as well as other enforcement and response agencies as part of the City Gate facilities.
