Billionaire mogul, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jnr has agreed to rescue the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari on reconstruction of Ota-Idiroko road.
Confirm News gathered that he will be handling the reconstruction of the busy but dilapidated Ota-Idi-Iroko International Highway subject to approval by the Federal Executive Council.

Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun revealed this on Wednesday when he led the Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN, on an inspection of the ongoing construction of Toll Plaza at Lotto area along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

According to Ogun State Chief Executive, just like the partnership that the state has built with the likes of Alhaji Aliko Dangote who also is using his tax credit to build the Sagamu Interchange to Papalanto Road, the State has spoken to Dr. Adenuga and he has graciously accepted that he was going to use his tax credit to fund the construction of the road, but that has to go through a process, for him to fund the road.
He explained that Federal government must accept his (Adenuga) design, valuation and a lot of things have to go to the Federal Executive Council.

“On the Ota-Idiroko road like the Minister Fashola has shared with us, that road is not under contract, but graciously, we spoke to Otunba Mike Adenuga. This has never happened before this Government came on board. This people have been in Nigeria and they’ve not partnered with the state or federal government before. We must be doing something right to make Dangote to decide to use his tax credit to construct two major roads. Papalanto is almost N70 billion and also the Epe-Ijebu-Ode road going through Odogbolu road, it is another road he has accepted to do,” Governor Abiodun stated.
The Governor also announced that the people of Sango-Ota and its environs would soon heave a sigh of relief as palliative works will soon commence on the bad portions of the Lagos-Ota and Ota-Idi-Iroko roads, and to be concluded by December.
He stated that the palliative which would be done by December, is to reduce the hardship being experienced by commuters along the roads.

The Governor also said the failed portions, which would be reconstructed by the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) would cost N13.4bn and would be part of the N56bn revived contract sum.

“In the meantime, the Minister has graciously instructed that FERMA fixes those places and immediately begin to carry out palliative works on that road.

“We have given the commitment that we will relocate traders; we will control and manage traffic, whatever that it is we need to do, we will ensure that we begin to bring succour and needed relief to our people.

“The state of that road today is pitiable. I went on that road myself and I felt bad for our citizens, however like the Minister has explained, we have decided to find a fasttrack solution and I must thank the Minister. He has graciously decided to extract those failed portion, those very terrible portions, not just at the old Toll Gate but about two kilometers of all the failed portions along the length of that road up to Abeokuta.
