The Ogun State government has commenced mass installation of street lights in major towns across the state.
The project, tagged “Let there be Light”, is aimed at reducing armed robbery incidents and carnage on roads, especially at night.
Abiodun, who made this known at a test run of the project on the 42km Sagamu Interchange-Siun-Abeokuta express road, at the weekend, said that the project would see the major towns and cities of the state light-up with street lights.
The governor declared that his government would not relent on delivering dividends of democracy to the people, stressing that “replicas of what now obtains along the Sagamu-Siun- Abeokuta expressway would be seen all over the state.”
Speaking earlier after inspecting the 526 housing units at Kobape, the governor said the construction of housing projects across the state is part of his administration’s economic sustainability plan to create job opportunities for artisans and open up the economy of the state.
He stated that the Kobape Housing Scheme is a deliberate urban renewal strategy aimed at stemming rural-urban migration
