The road is a death trap and has claimed many lives due to preponderance of these articulated vehicles on the road, which links the western to the northern part of Nigeria.
Ogbomoso people and other users of the road are earnestly praying that the federal government will walk the talk in respect of the recent approval granted by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for the completion of the new highway (Ibadan-Oyo-Ogbomoso-Ilorin), which has been under construction for the past twenty years. Aside this road twenty other roads across the country are to be completed or constructed courtesy of the FEC approval.
