Ondo 2020: Jegede condemns Ondo bad roads, says it is a reflection of bad governance

By Maria Ifafesobi
Ondo State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in the October 10 governorship poll, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) has condemned the terrible states of roads in Ondo State. He said it is a reflection of bad governance.
Mr. Jegede said this while addressing the supporters at the Akogbe of Ajue’s palace during his campaign tour to Odigbo Local Government.
He said he had noticed that virtually all the communities he had gone to campaign lack good roads which have hindered economic development in such areas.
“I have gone round the local government and discovered that the major problem facing your communities is the lack of good roads. When the roads are bad, there cannot be any meaningful development in such areas.
“This is the situation in virtually all communities across the state. It is a reflection of bad governance.
“If you vote for us, rest assured that these roads will be attended to; because we know that a good road is a booster for other forms of development,” he said.
The PDP flagbearer, however, promised farmers in Ajue community and the other communities he visited in Odigbo Local Government of financial assistance to enhance large-scale farming in the state if elected as governor.
He said, “Our people should not be going to Kano, Sokoto or Benue before they could buy rice, beans or yam.
“Our farmers should be able to make them available here, even at a very minimal cost”.
The Akogbe of Ajue, Oba Bamidele Akinwe, lauded the PDP’s governorship candidate for his masses-oriented programs.
He further urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure that the election is free, fair, and credible.
