He said, “We are responsible for all the repairing of the trunk B roads in the state, as we all know that the federal roads are maintained by FERMA and so also we are saddled with the responsibilities of maintaining state roads and that is what we currently doing.
“We are currently fixing some roads now, and I want the members of the public to please bear it in mind that our men are on the road day and night with reflective safety jackets, and with some caution signs to notify the road users that our men are working on some portions of the road .
“I am also using this opportunity to appeal to the masses for any inconveniences this may bring to the road users, I am sure with few weeks all the stress will be over and you will all continue to enjoy the road after it has been well repair.
“The roads that we are currently working on are Popoyemoja, Odinjo, Odo Ona, Apata, Oje, UCH, Oke Ado, Gate, and more in Ibadan metropolis, our working network cut across the state as we will be moving to Oke ogun face 1 and 2, Lanlate, Eruwa.”
