Residents of Ilupeju 2, zones 6 and 7 in Osogbo, Osun State Capital have lamented the deplorable condition of the road in their area and are calling for the intervention of the Osun State Government to bring succour to their area.

The community told the Speaker, Hon. Timothy Owoeye to help pressing it on Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to come to the aid of the community with population of more 10,000 people.
While expressing their grievances over deplorable state of the road, the community elders armed with placards with such as ” Mr governor help us, our Road is becoming worst”, The condition of our road has forced many residents to relocate out of the community”, “By the condition of our, the government has abandoned us”, “From Orita Olaiya to Africa, our community is the only area without government presence” among others.
Speaking with newsmen, the Ojomu of Osogbo land, Chief Olalere Ewelayo who is also a resident of the community said recently some officials of the state government from Ministry of Works and Transport had been coming to inspect the roads but nothing has been done on it.
He stated that the road has caused perennial hardship to residents of the communities.
