In a bid to immortalise the late Former Governor of Oyo State, Alao Akala, Governor Seyi Makinde, on Wednesday, promised to, upon completion, name the Ogbomoso-Iseyin road after the late Governor who passed on few months ago.
The governor said late Akala contributed immensely to the growth and development of Oyo state during his tenure.
Makinde made the declaration during the flag off ceremony of the 76.67km Ogbomoso – Iseyin Road, adding that the late Governor was scheduled to flag-off the road construction before his demise.
“Somebody would have been here today with me for this flag-off but God decided to call him before this date. I spoke to him and mentioned it to his church that day. This is someone, who has contributed immensely to the growth and development of Oyo State.
“The 76.67km road project, upon commissioning, will be named Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala Highway and we will put conspicuous signs every 10km from Ogbomoso to Iseyin that will show that this is Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala,” Makinde stated.
