The Ogun State Government has created an infrastructural project to regenerate old towns and buildings around the State in an effort to promote equitable development and revitalize the current administration.

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 made specifically to help indigenes  who want to renovate their homes and developers who want to build in the area because it doesn't involve taking their land but rather improving the socioeconomic landscape through increased trade and commercial activity 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.
