Governor Seyi Makinde has mandated the contractor
handling the construction of the 65 kilometres Moniya-
Iseyin road, KOPEK Construction Company, to complete
the project within one year.
The road contract was revoked after being abandoned by
the former contractor and was re-awarded in November
2019, with the completion time frame of one year.
The Project Manager, KOPEK Construction Company,
Engr. Paul Chamoun, while answering questions from
journalists, stated that the company had resumed work
after the new year yuletide and the first work done was
to fill all notable craters and potholes while concrete
works like culverts and line drainages were ongoing.
The state Commissioner for Works and Transport, Prof.
Raphael Afonja, said the present administration took
immediate step to re-award the road project after
revoking the contract with the former contractor to ease
the pain of the people plying the road and communities
along the way. He stated that government realized the
importance of the road as the link between Ibadan, the
state capital and Oke-Ogun, which was noted to be ‘food
basket’ of the state, adding that economic growth of the
state through agriculture would be maximized when the
road is completed.
He further enjoined the people of the State to keep faith
with the administration of Governor Seyi Makinde whose
only interest is to serve and create enabling environment
for the people to grow their investment and live
