We are aware that the federal government has begun the construction of a 2.2 kilometers Old Aponmu road from Iralepo market, off Ondo road, while we pray that the federal government extends the road project to our community, we urge the state government who we know has done paper works on the construction of our road to speed up action and start construction work.”

As it stands, our children trek to either Aponmu or Itaoniyan our neighbouring communities to study. We urgently need this intervention, we know Ondo State government will come to our aid.” Aladodo said
