The Dangote Group says it has completed Nigeria’s longest rigid pavement road located in Kogi State. The 43KM Obajana-Kabba road constructed by Dangote Industries Limited, has been completed.
This was made known through a statement issued by the group on Sunday,
The Project Director, Olatunbosun Kalejaiye, expressed his happiness on the completion of the Corporate Social Responsibility Project to be used by Nigerians, adding that while the rigid pavement had been completed, the company was dressing the shoulders.
The Site Engineer, Samuel Obosi, assured that the dual carriage way would be durable and less susceptible to potholes and repairs like asphalt road.
He added that it would reduce the rate of road accidents in the country.
The Bajana of Obajana Land, King Idowu Senibi, described the project as gigantic and the first of its kind anywhere in the country.
This is a great opportunity for us and many generations to come. Our society will be opened as you can see vehicles and commercial activities have started coming up. May Almighty God bless Dangote and all his staff,” he added.
The traditional head of Akpata Land, Frederick Balogun, said his people were very proud of Aliko Dangote, adding that the Dangote Cement Obajana plant had brought honour and respect to their kingdoms.
The King of Okebunku Land in Kabba Bunu Local Government, Timothy Omonile, commended the president of the Dangote Group and charged other philanthropists to emulate him.
He also added that, this is a very good way Nigerians could develop the economy and infrastructure of the state.
