Oyebanji laments deplorable state of federal roads in Ekiti



Ekiti State Governor Biodun Oyebanji has lamented the poor state of federal roads in the state, urging the Federal Government to fix the roads.

The governor, who said this during his inaugural appearance at the monthly programme, ‘Meet Your Governor’, noted that the derelict condition of the federal roads was a source of concern to him.

He hoped that reconstruction of the roads would be realised in the 2024 budget of the Federal Government, having received assurance of the federal lawmakers.

Oyebanji noted that the state could not invest heavily in the federal roads because of the Federal Government’s no-refund-to states policy.

He said his administration had begun construction of alternative roads, including Ado-Ekiti Ring Road, to give commuters thoroughfare in and out of Ekiti.
