The Iseyin Council of Societies (ICS) on Wednesday hinted that Oke Ogun people are ready to support Governor Seyi Makinde for his second term ambition.
According to Iseyin Council of Societies, the umbrella body of all social groups in the ancient town, in a letter to Governor Makinde, the support was as a result of the recent approval given by the Oyo state executive council for the construction of the 44kilometers Iseyin-Ogbomoso road.
In the letter signed by the ICS President, Hope Adeoti Lukuman, it stressed that “the road construction, when concluded, would facilitate economic progress around Oke-Ogun region and help develop commercial activities in major cities and townships like Oyo, Ibarapa, Ogbomoso and Kwara state among others that stand to also benefit from the project.”
“We use this medium to show our appreciation to the governor and his entire cabinet for the approval of Iseyin-Ogbomoso road, while work is ongoing vigorously on Moniya-Iseyin road. We joyously bring to your notice that the people of Oke-Ogun will be delighted to be identified with you in your future political pursuits because the construction of this road will bring not only accessible road to Ogbomoso, but also promote economic activities among the people of Oke-Ogun, Ibarapa, Oyo, Ogbomoso and by extension, Kwara State”, it said.
ICS however tasked the Oyo state government ” to commence the project without delay to further promote employment opportunities for the young and old that are interested in skill jobs.”
“It will be our joy if the construction of this road commences immediately and completed in time, in view of this, your name will be etched in gold in the minds of the good people of Oke-Ogun, for being a pathfinder in the present Oyo State.”
