He added that he will not hesitate to pay compensation to owners of property affected by the road construction, urging the people to cooperate with the contractor to complete the road on time.

Makinde said, “I will continue to go to Aso Rock to push for the refund of the money we spent on the roads. The Chairman of Lagelu, if you continue to come to us, I will continue to go to Aso Rock for a refund.

“Let me announce that Idi Ape to Olorunda Aba has been named as Governor Nyesom Wike Road. The road that stretches from Idi Ape to Olorunda Aba.
