Gov. Abiodun should fix deplorable Ogun roads: Ex-MAN Chairman

Ex-chairman of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) in Ogun, Wale Adegbite, has decried the state’s deplorable roads, appealing to Governor Dapo Abiodun’s administration to fix them in 2022.

Mr Adegbite made the appeal on Wednesday in Ota, noting that the roads, especially in Ota and Agbara, are worse off.

Stating that the costs of transporting containers from the port to factories and onward to customers were extremely high, the former MAN chairman said there was a need for the government to take proactive steps to boost businesses in the state urgently.

“This development places manufacturers at a comparative disadvantage with our international counterparts as our products are produced at higher costs,” he said.

Mr Adegbite also urged the federal government to redouble its efforts to repair the federal roads in Ogun and the country to facilitate ease of doing business.

“We want the federal and state governments to urgently do something about the state of our roads so that the manufacturers can contribute significantly to the nation’s Gross Domestic Product in 2022,” he added.

He emphasised the need for both the federal and state governments to create an enabling environment for manufacturers to strive and create employments for the teeming youth to reduce the country’s poverty rate.
