The road is an international route that links Sagamu express down to Idi-iroko border town after Ilaro, and we also have several other industries along this route. Its a federal road and for the past 3days the road has been rendered impassible . We are calling on the FEDERAL AUTHORITY especially FASHOLA to come to the rescue afterall he is the minister in charge of roads and power.”
