ODSIP Newsletter Vol. 1. No. 11

Mr. Koledoye is an employee of the Ondo State Government and currently serving in a Ministry along Oyemekun road in Akure. He lives in a rented apartment around Ondo Road with other members of his family despite having a property at Ijoka area of Akure. His quest to rent an apartment away from home was based on appalling state of road linking his residence to other parts of the State. His house, in Ijoka area, though completed remains inaccessible and becomes a nightmare during raining season whilst successive governments have given no attention to the area. Without mincing words, the plight of Mr. Koledoye remains the predicament of many public servants and residents of Ondo State, especially those who live around Ijoka, Oda Road, Kajola, Adebowale and some other areas in the State. Prior to the beginning of Akeredolu-led administration, the media had been inundated with reports of residents and vehicles being swept away by erosion during raining season while some abandoned their houses in order to seek refuge at somewhere else.
