Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has described the various excavations of roads and drains as well as the covering of drains with concrete slabs as necessary steps towards ensuring durable roads in the State.

The Governor who was on inspection tour of the various on-going road projects in Ado Ekiti, the State capital said the excavation of blocked drains and culverts and the introduction of concrete slabs on the drains will prevent roads from retaining water and ensure their durability.

Dr Fayemi said the new development which is just introduced by Hartland construction company handling the dualization of Old Garage- Ojumose and Atikankan- First Baptist roads shows the contractor’s competence.

He added that he had got calls from people who commend government on the quality job being done on the roads.

The slabs are expected to also prevent  indiscriminate disposal of waste in the drains which may cause flooding.

While expressing optimism that the ongoing reconstruction/rehabilitation of 16 township roads in Ado Ekiti as well as the various roads being handled by the contractor will have been completed in two months’ time, the Governor  said these will make Ado Ekiti a befiting State capital.

Fayemi stressed that attention will be focused on rehabilitation and reconstruction of township roads in Ikere, Ikole and Ijero Ekiti in order to give the towns a facelift and spread infrastructure development to them.

This he said will begin as soon as government completes all the ongoing road projects in Ado Ekiti.
