Ogbomoso/Osogbo Road Needs Attention Of FERMA


SIR: Ogbomoso/Osogbo road is one of the oldest roads in Nigeria. It is about 55 kilometres. The road is of great economic and commercial importance to the nation. Foodstuffs from OkeOgun area of Oyo State get to Osun, Ekiti and Ondo states through that route. Besides, there are many towns and villages in the area.


But just about eight years later, the road has become damaged, especially the Ogbomoso/IfonOsun portion, to such a level that the journey that would normally take less than forty minutes now takes about one and a half hours.

This has security and economic implications. We, therefore, call on the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to instruct its agency, Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA), to rehabilitate the 35km Ogbomoso/Ilajue portion of Ogbomoso/Osogbo Federal highway.
