The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is set to visit Oyo State on Friday, March 3rd 2023 to commission some projects executed by the administration of Governor Seyi Makinde.
According to a statement made available on Thursday by the Oyo State Commissioner for Information, Culture, and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun, Wike is expected to commission and flag off three projects.
Olatunbosun said the projects billed for commissioning are the Dr. Omololu Olunloyo Airport road, the Aviation Fuel Tank Depot and the Dr. Omololu Olunloyo Park in Ibadan.
The projects are part of the State Government’s quest to boost its economy and create accessible roads in the State, the Commissioner explained.
He said, “This is another opportunity coming to Oyo State, under the leadership of Governor Seyi Makinde. As we all know, his administration has focused on even distribution of infrastructure networks in Oyo State.”
The commissioning of projects is coming about a week before the scheduled March 11 governorship election in Oyo State in which Makinde is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Both Makinde and Wike are part of the G5 Governors that refused to work for the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the just concluded presidential elections which was eventually won by Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
