The Ooni Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has lamented the bad state of the Federal and state government roads in the Ife town.
He said efforts by the community to fix the roads have been rejected by government which has refused to do anything about the situation.
The monarch aired his dissatisfaction as revealed in a statement by Moses Olafare, the Director of Media and Public Affairs.
This was at the commissioning of a 700-metre road, which runs through Odo-Ogbe Market (Oja Tuntun), Ile-Ife.
According to him, “All we hear is that it is a government road, so we have to keep waiting.
“We are aware that the government cannot do it alone, so we want them to put up a scheme, like a form of concession on all major roads in Ife. We would look for able personalities within the community and they will fix the road and they will give them tax credits. It is the same.
“Let the government give us that opportunity and see whether we will perform. We can now replicate it in other communities across the country.
“We are willing and able to do that on all major roads in Ife. All we need is a form of concession in that regard.”
