Motorists decry traffic congestion on intercity roads In Osun

OSUN, Nigeria – Motorists and road users in the Osun State capital are complaining about the narrow nature of some intercity roads within Osogbo.

OgeneAfrican learnt that the affected roads include the Oke-Fia – Freedom Park (Old Garage) road, Jaleyemi and Gbeemu Junction Road and Station Road.

Their complaints are coming on the heels of a 3 hours demo closure carried out recently by the State Government.

The motorists while baring their minds, complained that the decision of the state government to construct a flyover at Olaiya Junction was not in the best interest of road users in Osogbo due to the fact that traffic at the popular junction is always smooth.

They decried the traffic congestion experienced in the affected roads which are always heavy during the morning and evening rush hours.

Meanwhile, prominent Osun indigenes have continued to show their support for the state government in its bid to construct the Olaiya Flyover.

Notable amongst them is a veteran journalist and former Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Philippines, Dr. Yemi Farounbi.

In a statement released at the weekend, the former diplomat said the decision of the state government to construct the bridge was a bold step in the right direction and as one that will not only solve contemporary problems but even future ones.

He also described the decision of the State Government to construct the flyover as one that puts it ahead of challenges long before they become problems.
