Ondo State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Saka Yusuf Ogunleye has appealed to residents of the state to comply with government guidelines aimed at making Akure a befitting state capital.
Mr. Ogunleye gave the advice today in Akure during the replacement of the Median road railings with concrete jerseys from the Post Office to Texaco Filling Station.
He said people have to learn to buy into government plans to make Akure, the state capital deserving that name.
According to him,the move was to put an end to pedestrians crossing the median,
a habit that uccessive administrations tried to stop by erecting railings.
He lamented that hoodlums have been destroying the iron railings by cutting or outright removal, thereby making government to lose the money invested in the project.
The Commissioner said the innovation is the final government step to make people ease traffic flow by putting a stop to crossing the median and making use of the bridge.
The Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Works, Engineer Taiwo Otun explained that the development was to put a stop to people using the walkway for trading and activities of pickpockets.
