Nigeria: Fayemi to Reconstruct Roads in State Housing Estate

Ado-Ekiti — Residents of State Housing Estate in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, will in a couple of weeks begin to enjoy asphalted motorable roads, as the state Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has disclosed that the estate's internal roads will be ready for use by October.

The governor, who was on an inspection tour of some ongoing projects, including the Oba Adejugbe General Hospital and some other road projects at the weekend, gave the assurance that most of the projects embarked upon by his administration would be commissioned for use before the end of his tenure.

Assuring that the internal road network in the Oke Ila Housing Estate would be delivered by next month, Fayemi said the roads were neither provided for the estate during construction nor did previous administrations considered it a priority.

He pointed out that the need to give the people living in the estate a new lease of life informed the decision of his administration to effect the construction of the roads.
