A coalition of like-minded Civil Society organizations, the Osun Masterminds on Thursday called on the Federal Government to give urgent attention to the complete rehabilitation of Ibadan – Ilesa expressway as it has become a death trap.

The organization during their March edition’s press conference on happenings in Osun State and Nigeria said it is imperative for the Federal Government to intensify efforts on the road which is currently in deplorable condition.

According to the Executive Director of the group Prof Wasiu Oyedokun-Alli and Comrade Ayodeji Emmanuel Ologun while fielding questions from journalists, “the road is impassable for motorists and urgent attention is needed for total rehabilitation.

“We also appeal to the Federal Government to intensify efforts at stemming the tide of food inflation in the country.

“The FG must find all means possible to stem the tide of inflation as the rising costs of food has put Nigerians under immeasurable pressure.

“Knowing how the cost of fuel controls the cost of other commodities, we implore the FG to expedite actions on the Nation’s refineries as local production is our only solution to affordable fuel.

“We also want to implore the President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to, as a matter of urgent National importance, to rethink the assignment of Mr. Bayo Adelabu as the Minister of Power as the electricity situation has worsened across the country, making life harder for the average Nigerian.

“The Minister, having failed to efficiently manage the power sector, has shown himself incapable of giving the sector the needed leadership and should therefore be sacked or reassigned to a different Ministry that suits his capacity”.
