Bothered by the increasing number of collapsed roads now becoming a permanent feature of Ogbomoso metropolis, a youth group, Ogbomoso Community Youth Forum (OCYF) has perfected plans to have some of the major roads rehabilitated.
The group is targeting the southwest – north trunk A road within Ogbomoso axis specifically the Caretaker-Baptist portion that had totally become gullied.
In a press release, signed by Rev’d. Peter Olaleye and Comrade Adebayo Adeniran, president and PRO respectively, the group states it “is pleased to inform the good people of Ogbomoso that the long awaited road repair project of Caretaker, Olopemarun, College of Medicine and Federal Government College areas of Ogbomoso will commence on Monday, 4th of October 2021 at Caretaker area with clearing of drainages and asphaltic overlay of the portion. We will also execute the construction of a new drainage project at Olopemarun area.”
Urging the people to come out enthusiastically to participate in the community development service, it submits, “To this end, we are asking the good people of Ogbomoso to come out and join this community service to ensure success. May God bless our community.”


It is recalled that the Federal Road Maintenance Agency, FERMA, began the construction of the damaged portions of the trunk A road earlier this year but shockingly abandoned the project after the agency had removed the previous asphalt, leaving the road bare.
All entreaties to the agency by various groups to return to site had proved abortive.
This is the reason OCYF took up the challenge since the damaged portions have continually given rise to traffic snarls at different axes of the city as well as being a trigger for fatal accidents.
