29 August 2018

Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has inaugurated the construction and rehabilitation of 308 km of rural roads across the state in line with his pledge to continue to take development forward. He revealed that his administration had delivered on the electoral promises made to the people in all aspects of life, particularly in the area of infrastructure, where the largest chunk ‎of the state’s resources were spent on.

The new phase under the Osun Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP II), will take place in both Oragun and Oke Ila respectively. The project is jointly financed by the World  Bank and the French Development Agency.

Aregbesola reiterated his commitment to modernize the state and uplift the standard of living of the people in the state. The National Coordinator of RAMP, Ubandoma Ularamu, also commended the state for prompt payment of its counterpart fund. He added that a total of 522.10 km of rural roads and 26 river crossings (bridges) are being constructed and rehabilitated all over the state.

 Ularamu expressed confidence in the ability of the state’s infrastructural projects to turn around the economic fortune of the state and by extension make life more abundant, comfortable and worthy of living for all.
