President Muhammadu Buhari has assured the Sagamu-Benin highway and Lagos-Ibadan expressway would be ready for commissioning before the end of 2022.
He spoke on Thursday in Ogun State during the commissioning of five strategic projects.
Addressing Ogun residents, the President heaped praises on Governor Dapo Abiodun, for delivering visionary and trail-blazing projects in the midst of prevailing and challenging circumstances occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Describing Abiodun as the ‘‘performing Governor of Nigeria’s Gateway State,’’ the President said he is a worthy example of ‘‘promises made, promises kept.’’
The President noted the lofty projects: the Gateway City Gate; the 42-Kilometre Sagamu Interchange-Abeokuta Road; the 14km Ijebu-Ode-Epe Expressway and two Housing Estates for low, medium and high income earners at Kobape and Oke-Mosan in Abeokuta, respectively, could not have materialised without the government’s huge investment and commitment to security of lives and property.

‘‘This has made Ogun State one of the safest and most peaceful States in the country and investors’ destination of choice.
‘‘You (Prince Abiodun) have justified the mandate of the people of Ogun State. You have represented our Party very well,’’ the President said.
The President expressed delight that the 14km Ijebu Ode-Mojoda-Epe Road he commissioned has been reconstructed into a modern expressway by the State Government.
