Engr. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has assured the people of the State of better services from the Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OYSROMA) as he declared the readiness of the administration to inject more funds and procure more equipment for the agency within the first quarter of the year 2020.
This was disclosed in Ibadan on Monday by the Chairman, Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency (OYSROMA), Hon. Kamil Akinlabi Mudashiru during the management meeting of the agency at his office.
According to him, Governor Seyi Makinde was poised at ensuring the operations of the agency get to other parts of the State as quick as possible in order to ease flow of traffic and movement of goods as well as farm produce from the hinterlands.
“I am happy to say that His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde has promised to increase funding to our agency and also help in the purchase of necessary equipments in preparation for the agency to move its operations to other parts of the state.
“This is a news that gladdens our heart as we can now have enough facilities and manpower to move outside the Ibadan metropolis and start works on roads that are equally economically-viable, that will yield commercial interest to the people of the State and the government.
“There are roads in the hinterland around the State that are begging for attention and we are using this opportunity to again assure the people of the State of the readiness of the government to do repair works on roads that are in need of our attention,”he added.
Hon. Kamil Mudashiru noted that the increase in funding to the agency with the provision of necessary equipments would further enhance job quality, better efficiency and supervision of projects being carried out by the agency.
He therefore charged the management and staff of the agency to be more alive to their duties, stressing that their dedication to work would further improve the productivity of the agency.
” I want to use this medium to implore our staff to be alive to their duties, be more dedicated to work so that we can achieve more than what we had last year.”
In attendance were the two board members of the agency which include Hon Siju Lawal, representing Oyo North Senatorial District, Hon. Matthew Akano, representing Oyo South Senatorial District, the General Manager, (Engr) Mrs Modinat Oduola and directors of the agency.
