Residents of Kwara state, have cried out to the governor of the state, AbdulRahman AbdulRazak over the deplorable condition of roads in some areas across the state.
In a press statement made available by CEO and Co-Founder of Opab Gas, Olasupo, Abideen Opeyemi to AMILOADED Media today, revealed specifically the poor condition of Shao road, leading to Malete which according to him has become a death trap to all commuters using the road.
“Your excellency sir, the good people of Kwara State have never been more harmonized and happy over the choice of leadership. Since you took the reins, you’ve shown us through concise leadership, and effective execution, how fit for the role you are.
“We are grateful for all the amazing things you’ve done, especially infrastructure wise, since the beginning of your administration. But sir, there is a life threatening matter that needs your urgent attention, it is about the Shao road that leads to Malete. If nothing is done, if left alone, if tagged unimportant, if seen as unnecessary, many lives are at risk, and so are many businesses, over the deplorable state of the road”.
Olasupo, on behalf of the road users and people in the neighbouring towns, appealed to the governor to help find lasting solution to the bad state of the road so as to forestall further accidents and other live-threatening occurrences.
“The Busamu bridge which links the Shao — Malete Road is not only in a deplorable state, but has been a prime cause of accidents on the road. While there are also similar level of life threatening potholes which have been ignored from the previous administration, allowing it to fester and create chaos, the bridge is begging for more urgency. The reckless driving of Soludero commuters on the road in the absence of speed limiters on those buses is also a threat to people who ply the route, especially smaller cars, who are always victims of intimidation and threat by the recklessness of Soludero drivers”.
“The people who ply the route, the people of the community, tax payers, business owners, farmers, are appealing to the State Government to help preserve our lives as we go to our different posts everyday, towards fulfilling our roles in the development of Kwara State”.
“We understand that there are lots of projects ongoing with different levels of urgency, but the repeated accidents with life threatening circumstances on this road carries great importance”.
