Ogun State Public Works Agency (OGPWA) have begun rehabilitation of road network within Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, to ensure accessibility within the academic environment, ease movement of students and stakeholders, thereby improving qualitative education in the State.
The Public Relation Officer, MAPOLY, Mr. Yemi Ajibola stated this during the flag-off of the rehabilitation of road network within the Polytechnic community, noting that there had not been major repairs on the Institution’s road for about 25 years, except the ones undertaken by the Maintenance Department of the Institution.
Mr. Ajibola said the intervention was commendable, revealing that many motorists commuting students to the Institution had stopped plying the road, which had caused attendant hardship on students.
According to him, “the present repair work that is ongoing in MAPOLY is unprecedented, as we have not had this kind of intervention for decades. People go through lot of stress maneuvering their way in this community and once you are stressed up in an academic environment, you may not be optimal in your delivery, but with this, learning will be smooth for our students and for us as well”, Ajibola said.
He lauded Governor Dapo Abiodun, for his resolve to bring education back to its pride of place under his administration.
Remarking, the General Manager, OGPWA, Arch. Gbenga Akintola, pledged that the road would be completed on record time, as government placed high priority on education, which necessitated the repair intervention, urging all road users to desist from any act that could damage the road.
