They opined that Uso an agrarian community located about 15km to Ise in Ekiti state ought to have a good road network for her agriculture products to get to various markets within their reach.
The Community in a communique issued and signed by Mr. Niran Abitogun, Head of Media, Uso media Hub at the end of the program enjoined the federal government to come as a matter of necessity to reconstruct this road for the benefit of farmers and commuters traveling to Abuja the federal capital.
” The link Road is the shortest route for travellers going to Abuja from Akure instead of passing through Akoko land”
“Also it will open up the economic interaction between Ondo state and Ekiti state from this axis”
The road which was constructed in 1979 by the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) headed by Alhaji Shehu Shagari as President and the defunct Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), regime of Late Chief Adekunle Ajasin as the Executive governor of the state has been totally abandoned by successive regime.
