Seyi Makinde, the executive governor of Oyo State, has stated that residents will soon forget that they once complained about the strange development of traffic congestion within the state.
According to a statement signed by Mr Taiwo Adisa, his Chief Press Secretary, he made this known in a 2021 New Year speech made available to men in the media in Ibadan.
The traffic congestion has taken over major areas in the state capital.
According to the governor, “We are confronting the new challenges caused by the influx of people and businesses into Oyo State. More people are being attracted to our dear state because of our good governance initiatives and business-friendly environment. We believe that the complaints about the city’s traffic situation will soon be a thing of the past as we vigorously pursue road rehabilitations, expansions, and constructions. The bus terminals at Iwo Road, New Ife Road, Challenge and Ojoo will be commissioned in 2021.”
Advising residents to uphold a positive outlook for the New Year, he stated that the state is open for business and that his administration continues to be committed to its promise to improve the state, stating that it would never trample on the support of the people.
He further said: “We will continue to maintain a positive outlook for 2021. Oyo State remains open for business. The Oyo State Investment and Public-Private Partnership Agency (OYSIPA) is always willing to discuss investment opportunities in Oyo State with both local and international businesses.”
