The Oyo State Government has awarded a contract worth N43.1 billion for the construction of the 76.7-kilometer Iseyin-Fapote-Ogbomosho road.

The contract award was approved at the 14th State Executive Council meeting, which was presided over by Governor Seyi Makinde and held at the Executive Council Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Agodi Secretariat, Ibadan.

Professor Dahud Sangodoyin, the State Commissioner for Public Works and Transport, who was accompanied by the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr Wasiu Olatunbosun, told the press after the meeting that the project would be carried out through direct government payment and completed in 13 months.

Sangodoyin explained that the government wanted the project to start as soon as possible, so they would advance a payment of 30% of the project cost next week when the contractors are mobilized to site, followed by a payment of 20% in January, requiring them to complete nearly 75% of the work before requesting any other payment from the government.

Sangodoyin said: “It is directly funded by the state government. The government, remember, had a supplementary budget sometimes in August for which we had a loan called the DCCI loan. We are utilising this DCCI facility for the project.”
He noted that the government hoped at least 75 percent completion of the project would have been achieved before June/July 2022 when the dry season would be wrapping up.


He said: “The road is split into two wonky because we want the road to be completed on time and also to have quality construction and ensure that it’s done within 13months. The first half is from Iseyin where we have the Ansar-deen mosque at Atori road junction to Apewo village which is about 38.1kms.
“Then the other half is from Apewo village to Randa, Ogbomosho which is about 38.57km. For these two roads, we have two bridges, one each on the halves of the roads. The total value for the road is about N43.1bn. The first half is N20billion, while the other half is about N23.1billion. In total, it is N43.1billion,” Sangodoyin revealed.

He stated that Messrs Kopek Construction was awarded the first section of the road and Messrs Kremborg Construction was awarded the second section.
