Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde has declared that his administration will turn Ibadan into a 21st-century city through the provision of developmental projects across the city.

The Governor stated this at the inauguration ceremony of 2021/2023 Executive Council of the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) led by its President-General, (Prince) Oluyemisi Adeaga at Ibadan House, Oke-Aremo, Ibadan.

Makinde explained CCII is an influential association in the whole of Oyo State, saying that he believes in its ideals.

He assured that most of the projects by his administration in Ibadan will transform the city into a 21st Century city.

According to him: “We have roughly two years to re-image Ibadan and we are already on that path. A few of the projects we are doing in Ibadan are projects that can lead Ibadan to a city of 21st century.

“We have commissioned the remodelled Lekan Salami Stadium when the majority of states in Nigeria are talking about insecurity, kidnapping, banditry and insurgency; we were still at Adamasingba at 10 pm. A foreign club was with us and we were not afraid.

“In terms of infrastructure, the Circular Road is one project that would change the landmark in Ibadan. It is 110kms but before our tenure ends in 2023, 75kms of it will be delivered.

“If we can vividly reflect, there used to be bus terminal in Ogunpa in those days. So, we also want to recreate the same with the bus terminals we are putting up at Challenge, Iwo Road and Ojoo.

“Many people have said they like the light-up project we have done already. The ones we have done in Ibadanland alone is not up to 30 per cent of what we planned to do.

“We are actually supposed to light up 156kms of the road in Ibadan. And all they have done is less than 50kms.”
