Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi yesterday said his administration in the last seven and half years had committed over N200 billion to road construction and rehabilitation across rural and urban centres of the state. The governor disclosed this during the inauguration of Impact African Television, a sister company of the Ibadan-based Impact Business Radio and Impact Business School.
He said: “Our administration has spent over N200billion on road construction since we assumed office about seven years ago, because we realized the need to make our roads well paved for movement of goods and people.
We were also determined to beautify the environment to give the state a new look, all which have attracted foreigners and even local business interests to Oyo State.
“Our administration also took seriously promotion of peace and security for these businesses to thrive. I have no doubt that the factors that attracted several businesses to our state also encouraged Impact African Television and Radio to come here.”
