Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde has said his government will not pull down any property for road construction in the state without reaching out to the owners and compensating them very well.
Seyi Makinde revealed this recently during an assessment tour of the abandoned Benbo-Apata road on the Akala Expressway area in Ibadan.
He vowed that his administration would make sure all projects are completed.
He added that a lot of cash has been spent on the road project in the state after they were abandoned by previous governments.
His words, “You cannot demolish people’s property without compensating them. So, we will engage them.
“We must know that development comes at a price. It may be painful but it’s for the common good of all. I believe they will cooperate with us.”
