A delegation led by the Deputy Governor Kayode Alabi has been appointed by the Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, to visit Odo-Ase community in Oke Ero Local Government Area over the Friday night downpour that washed away the bridge linking the community with other parts of the state.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Rafiu Ajakaye, said the delegation also visited the Orisa Bridge, where the embankment was washed away, amid ongoing construction of a new bridge at the same spot by the administration.

The Deputy Governor was accompanied by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Transport, Alhaji Ishaq Olorukooba and other officials from the Ministry, among others.

It was gathered that the delegation also visited the communities on Saturday to commiserate with the people as well as assess the requirements for reconstruction.

The statement reads, “The Governor sends his commiserations to the people of the communities. He reassures them that immediate steps will be taken to reconstruct the bridge as soon as possible to reconnect the people to their neighbouring communities.”
