Residents of Budo Egba and Otte communities in Asa local government area of Kwara state are worried they may soon be cut off from other parts of the state because their main road is now almost cut into two.
Correspondent Ibrahim Alege reports that Budo Egba and Otte communities in Asa local government area of Kwara state share boundary with Oyo state. Residents are largely farmers and traders.
The road that passes through these communities is the old Ilorin-Ogbomosho expressway constructed in the 70s. It served as the major link road between the north and the south west.
The construction of the new Ilorin-Ogbomosho dual carriage way by the Obasanjo administration diverted attention of most motorists away from the old road. Consequently, less pressure on the road and less maintenance.
Residents fear that they may soon be cut off from Ilorin, the state capital if nothing is done urgently. They say unsuspecting motorists have fallen into this ditch especially at night.
TVC News crew visited the federal controller of works in Kwara state, Wasiu Atitebi who promised that a permanent solution would be found to the spot.
