The governor also announced that the dualization of the Ado-Ekiti-Ikare-Akoko road will soon begin.

Governor Oyebanji emphasized his administration’s commitment to collaborating with the federal government in tackling the infrastructure issues facing the state. This includes prioritizing the dualization of the 31-kilometer highway linking Ekiti to the FCT via Ondo, Edo, and Kogi states.

The Governor made these remarks in Ado-Ekiti during the inauguration of the newly constructed office complex of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Ekiti State Chapter.

He highlighted that the continuity of government from a single political party would bring unprecedented development to the state. He attributed the minor setbacks experienced in the state to the transition of power to other political parties.
