This is to appeal to the government, either at the state and federal level to help the residents of Agunbelewo/Okinni/Ilobu/Erin/Ifon in Osun State on the poor condition of the road linking them with Osogbo, the state capital.

Because of the closeness to Osogbo, no one would ever thought that such road could be left unattended to, but alas, that is the situation.

As it stands today, it is clear that the people of that axis have completely been abandoned by the government as can be clearly reflected in the condition of their road. Unfortunately, there is no other alternative route for the people living in the axis.

There is no one who will pass through the road, no matter how highly positioned such person could be and not regret using the road, not because the people living in the axis are bad people, but because the road has become an eyesore.

It is on record that emergency cases have on several occasions been complicated, while expectant mothers have also experienced complications due to the condition of the road.

Though, there are rumours that the road had been awarded for reconstruction, but with the look of things, it does not seem the road is as there are no signals that it would be constructed anytime so soon.

Therefore, pending the time the road would be fully constructed, the government either at the state or federal level need to intervene and save the people of the axis. Even if it is just the grading of the road, something should be done.

Though, everybody is aware that it is a Federal Road, but we appeal to Osun government, particularly the Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to intervene, as he had done to so many other communities in the state.
