Towards equitable and revitalisation development of the present administration, Ogun State Government has created an infrastructural project to regeneration old towns and buildings across the State.

Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, TPL Olatunji Odunlami, made this known during a stakeholders’ meeting organised by Ogun State Slum Regeneration Authority on the regeneration scheme of 100metres Itoku-Ikija corridor, at Olumo Rock Tourist Complex Auditorium in Abeokuta.

Odunlami stated that the Scheme was designed solely to guide indigenes who have the intention of redeveloping their family properties and developers who aim at putting up buildings in the areas, as it does not entail taking lands of the people in the area, but to boost the tourist appeal, socio-economic landscape through increased trade and commercial activities of the State.

"Let me state unequivocally that the regeneration scheme does not entail taking lands of the people in the area, rather, it was designed solely to guide indigenes who may wish to redevelop their family properties, as well as developers

intending to put up buildings in the area”, the Commissioner said.

In her remarks, the Acting General Manager, Ogun State Slum Regeneration Authority, TPL Abiola Ayodele, stated that strict adherence and implementation of the plans have the potential to modernise the community and attract investors.

TPL Ayodele implored stakeholders to collaborate with the government by taking ownership of the Scheme, for successful implementation of regeneration of the area.

Responding, the Osile of Oke-Ona Egba, Oba (Dr.), Adedapo Tejuoso, represented by Oluwo Oke-Ona Egba, Chief Samson Ogunmade, appreciated the government for including the community in its infrastructural and developmental plans.

He appealed to the government not to relent in its efforts at ensuring good roads in the hinterland, particularly the road leading to their community.
