Ilesa Accident: Governor Adeleke Approves Expansion of Ilbodi-Ilesa Road, Creation of Trailer Park

NEWS RELEASE

OSOGBO- 12/04/2025- osunstate.gov.ng

Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure to rehabilitate and widen the Ibodi-Ilesa road at Ilesa to forestall incessant accidents that have claimed lives in recent times.

The State Governor has also directed the Commissioner for Transportation to consider the creation of a trailer park in the area to stop multiple parking of trailers that has endangered lives of road users alongside the area.

Governor Adeleke issued the above directives while receiving the report of a Committee he set up after the unfortunate accident that claimed the life of a female staff of the University of Ilesa.

While condoling the family of the victim again, Mr Governor endorsed the compensation package already agreed between the owner of the truck and the family of the deceased even as he regretted that no amount of monetary compensation can replace the loss of a precious life.

While also approving creation of regulations to govern trucking activities along the said road, the State Governor warned companies operating in the state to be mindful of the question of safety and security of their host communities.

“We are putting stiff regulations in place to prevent recurrence of such sad incidents in the future. The Ministry of Works will work on expanding the road and the Ministry of Transportation will develop a trailer park.

“Parking of trailers on that narrow road is hereby prohibited. Speed limit should also be enforced with immediate effect”, Mr Governor so further directed.

Submitting his report earlier, the Committee Chairman who is also the Commissioner for Transportation, Hon Sesan Oyedele narrated the visitation of the Committee members to the families of the deceased, the affected company and the management of the University of Ilesa.

“ We commiserated with the family and negotiated with the grieving family. We concluded a settlement under very difficult conditions. We conveyed Your Excellency’s heartfelt sympathy to the affected family”, the Commissioner told Mr Governor.

Signed:
Mallam Olawale Rasheed, Spokesperson to the State Governor.
