THE National Ikirun Progressive Union (NIPU) has commended Governor Ademola Adeleke for continuing the reconstruction of Osogbo-Ikirun-Ila-Odo-Kwara boundary road.
According to NIPU, the reconstruction has not only made the road motorable and comfortable for motorists but has also beautified Ikirun town.
NIPU made the commendation in a statement jointly issued by its President, Dr. Mustafa Olawuyi and Secretary, Magistrate Lateef Ajala, in appreciation to Adeleke after the commissioning of the second phase of the road terminating at popular Alamisi Market Junction in Ikirun.
The union recalled with nostalgia, the former deplorable condition of the road after being abandoned for years before Adeleke’s intervention; noting that it was full of potholes which had hitherto made smooth driving from Osogbo to Ikirun impossible and always caused several avoidable accidents.
The National Ikirun Progressive Union, while appreciating the good gesture and hand of fellowship Adeleke extended to the indigenes and residents of Ikirun, following the continuation of the road construction; equally lauded the present administration for embarking on reconstruction of station road – Akinorun Grammar School road.
The union urged Adeleke to prevail on the contractors handling the roads to expedite action to ensure timely completion of the two ‘important projects’, while praying for the administration to be successful in all its endeavours.
