Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun has assured construction of the Agbara-Lusada road will commence in two weeks to ease vehicular and pedestrian movement in the axis.
Abiodun stated this during the opening ceremony of the 10th Gateway International Trade Fair tagged “Transforming agriculture and commerce in a highly competitive global market” at the Trade Fair Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
He said: “We will be flagging off the construction of Atan Lusada Agbara road in the next 2 weeks. We are also paying attention to rural roads to boost agriculture and development of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
“We are developing MSMEs clusters across the state that will be provided with full infrastructure of roads, drainage, power, and fiber optics that would be offered at attractive pricing and flexible payment terms to further encourage to incentivise MSMEs.”
Abiodun also noted it was time for Nigeria to explore other sectors to boost the economy, adding that if sectors like agriculture, trade and manufacturing, were given the needed attention, it would go a long way in making the economy viable and sustainable.
