Oyo Govt. To Fix Over 200km Rural Roads Before December

Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde says his government is to fix at least 200 kilometres of rural roads through the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) in 2021.
He said this while receiving the delegates of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
The governor said his administration was committed to improving agricultural outputs of the state so that it could take its pride of place and take many unemployed youths out of the streets.
Governor Makinde commended the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) for the commitment to fixing over 200 kilometres of rural roads in the state.
He added that the special Agro-Processing Zones (SAPZ) Project would also have the support of government at the topmost level.
Earlier, the team leader of the African Development Bank, Dr. Chucks Ezedinma, said the Bank is currently in the country to undertake the Special Agro- Industrial Processing Zones (SAPZs).
He said the programme is designed for six states and that Oyo State is one of the beneficiary states.
