Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for Oyo South Senatorial District, Chief Joseph Tegbe, has commenced grading of some roads in Ido Local Government Area of Oyo State.
Mr Adeyanju Mustapha, a member of the committee set up for the project, who is also a PDP stalwart in Ido council area, confirmed the development in a statement issued by Tegbe’s Media Team on Sunday in Ibadan.
Mustapha said that the road grading project was a demonstration of Tegbe’s unwavering commitment to the development of his senatorial district.
He listed the wards, which were the beneficiaries of the first phase of Tegbe’s infrastructural development drive in the local government area, to include: wards four, five, six, seven and 10.
Adeyanju also said that the project was designed to cover the entire 10 wards in the council area, adding that the second phase, which would cover the remaining five wards, would start by next weekend.
“Chief Tegbe is a man of his words. He met with the leaders of our party some weeks ago and assured them of his readiness to grade the dilapidated roads.
“As we speak, four graders are working in various places in Ido local government.
“We have covered Awosonso, Siba, Olosun, Agaloke and Idi-ahun in ward 10; Oloro Olomo-Ariyibi Fanawole areas in ward four, Bakatari- Araromi Idowu and we are now on Abokede to Odetola, which is part of ward six,” he said.
While expressing the appreciation of all the PDP leaders to Tegbe, Adeyanju promised the full votes of the people of the council area to the senatorial candidate and all the PDP candidates at the forthcoming general elections. (NAN)
