Makinde, expressing joy with Sanusi’s gesture, thereafter approved the redesigning of the popular Amuloko market to ease free flow of vehicular movement in the area.

“Then the ever busy Amuloko market will be reorganized so as to give way for free flow of traffic. The Ona-Ara local government caretaker chairman has been meeting with the the officials of the market to achieve this goal…,” OYOINSIGHT.COM was told.

Sanusi, who is the chief executive officer of Ilaji Games Resort and Sports Center, Oloyo Village, Akanran, had just completed the rehabilitation of the 17 kilometer road which has hitherto been neglected by previous administration in Oyo State.

The project, which gulped several millions, was in partnership with the Oyo State Road Maintenance Agency, OYSTROMA. The petroleum engineer, who is the Otun Apesinola of Ibadan, struck a partnership with the state government by funding the project while the agency mobilized its men to the site. The leadership of Ona-Ara local government was involved too.

OYOINSIGHT.COM learnt that the road had been left unattended to for several years despite the fact major companies and government facility like the headquarters of Ona-Ara local government, Bovas Petroleum trailer yard and others are located in the area.

It was further learnt that Sanusi, who is also the proprietor of International College of Arts, Science and Technology, Ibadan, ICAST, had initially constructed more 6 kilometers of the road with concrete when his request to personally reconstruct it was turned down.

From the beginning, Sanusi, a petroleum engineer and owner of the International College of Arts and Science Technology, ICAST, Elebu, Ibadan, has not stopped extending developmental project to everywhere he finds himself.

Apart from employing thousands of Ibadan residents, Sanusi had constructed concrete roads in Akanran and Elebu spanning close to 10 kilometers. He contributed to anything Ibadan and Oyo State in general.

In a brief chat, Sanusi, who is the Otun-Apesinola of Ibadan and about-to-be crowned Okanlomo of Yorubaland, said he would not relent in contributing to the development of Akanran community, Ona-Ara Local Government Area and Oyo State as a whole.

“Ilaji Farms, Ilaji Hotels and Sports Resort and other businesses are here, which are engaging and empowering the people. There are hundreds of people who make their living here and they are entitled to a good road for easy movement and transportation of their merchandise.

“We cannot continue to wait for the government to do everything. I want to thank the incumbent governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, for allowing this partnership, because our efforts to strike a similar collaboration had failed in the past.
