“In order to ensure economic activities are not totally paralyzed and ensure free flow of vehicular movements within and around Osogbo, diversion routes have been created and road diversion signs installed.
“Men of the FRSC,NPF, NSCDC & OYES will be assisted by officers from the office of transportation in the ministry of works and transport, and other paramilitary organizations in the 9 months of the construction to guide and direct motorists.
“Recall that a three-hour demo was observed three weeks ago to sensitize the public and observe all precautionary measures towards the diversion routes.
“All corrections and observations noted during the test have been effected and new routes created. Members of the public are enjoined to observe the road signs and cooperate with law enforcement agencies to make the road diversions as seamless and smooth as possible.
