That is why as an administration, we have continued to commit so much to the constant dredging and maintenance of the road and river to prevent flooding and other environmental hazards that can arise especially during rainy season.

“The constant dredging and other maintenance practices were all done to prevent disasters but we are not oblivious of the fact that they are only temporary preventive measures but for the huge resources required to execute the project, we sought for the intervention of the State Government.

“We are glad to inform the good people of Ogbegun Community and its environs that His Excellency Engr Seyi Makinde graciously approved the project for immediate execution, and it has since begun.
