Monarch Extols Dangote Over Road Completion


0

A First Class Monarch in Kogi State has thumped up the Dangote Group for the completion of Nigeria’s longest concrete road in the State.

Chairman of the Okun Area Traditional Council and the Obaro of Kabba, HRM Solomon Owoniyi said, the concrete road has elevated the status of his people in Nigeria.

The 43km Obajana-Kabba road project was said to be the country’s longest concrete road project, gulping billions of naira.

The paramount ruler said: “Without this road, Okun people would have been completely shut out of the state capital, Lokoja. We are most grateful. I don’t know why the arrangement of the road stopped at Kabba, it would have terminated at Egbe or Ilorin.”

The Monarch who made this remark Tuesday during his visit to Dangote Cement Plant Obajana thanked the President of the Dangote Group Alhaji Aliko Dangote for creating jobs for the Okun people and for supporting the Nigerian economy.

Responding, General Manager Community Relations and Special Duties, Mr. Ade Anlemi, said the company has expended billions of naira to support the state and the host communities through its various Corporate Social Responsibility Programmes.

He said apart from the  Obajana-Kabba concrete road project which gulped billions of naira, the company has a scholarship scheme and several other infrastructural and empowerment programmes in the state.

Other traditional leaders in the Obaro’s entourage include: HRH Oba Ayodele Irukera, the Elegbe of Egbe; HRH Oba William O. Ayeni, the Olujumu of Ijumu; HRH Babatunde Etombi, the Agbama of Isanlu; HRH, Oba J.O. Joledo, the Elulu of Mopa; HRH Oba Elijah Meseko, Obaro of Odo Ape; HRH Oba Timothy  Omonile and those of Obajana, Oyo, Apata and Iwaa communities, among others.

Worried by the huge sum of money used in road repairs, President of the Dangote Group Aliko Dangote had said plans were afoot to revolutionize Nigerian roads with concrete, stressing that resources used in road repairs and maintenance would be channeled to other more important needs of the nation.
