Governor Kayode Fayemi ordered the engineers in the State Ministry of Works and Transportation to work with the contractor handling road to carry out immediate geotechnical survey of the affected road in Ekiti State.

Fayemi said: “This is another evidence why we must take climate change very seriously when I heard of it this morning I even thought it was the other failed portion which we had already contracted out to the original contractor that was affected but it turned out that it is another part of the road that has now failed.

“This is a state road, we will take some preliminary measures to restore the road back to some reasonable use but we don’t want to be precipitated about our approach to dealing with this problem. We are going to get our engineers in the ministry of works, to work with the contractor, to do a geotechnical survey of the area affected. we will do a survey of at least 500 meters around this entire axis so that we know what is happening underneath the asphalted area in order to deal with it effectively.

“The important thing is pending the time this is being fixed alternative road will be made available via igede, toward Iyin for those who wants to get to Ado. It is a very important road to us in the state and that is understandable serving as alternative road for those who wants to get outside the state either towards Ilesha, Igbara odo, Igbara oke, Akure or those who want it as a short cut to other communities and farmland in this area not to mention Ilawe community itself that is going to be most affected by this unfortunate development.

“But I want to assure Kabyesi and all the people of Ilawe Ekiti that Government is not unaware of this that was why I came to check it myself and the contractor has already come I believe is bringing his extracavator and other equipment to start work immediately on this.” He said.
