It’s worth breaking that one of the dangerous roads in Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba Akoko Ondo State, Medoline has encountered a splendid transformation that could be best described as an asphaltic express.
The road that has been under construction for the past few months has finally commenced the laying of the asphalt yesterday and still rolling.
The joy of the dwellers in Medoline area knew no bound as the road has drastically transformed from potholes version to smooth version as the road has been covered with asphalt.
The picture of the previous state of the road was that which one could not comprehend because of its risky state. The awful state of Medoline road over the years has become a territory for Satan’s boys to penetrate and frustrate the peace of students living in the area, however, this sudden change will tell a good difference.
A 200 Level Accounting student, Blessing expressed her feelings towards the transformation of Medoline road, “I commend those constructing this road; they are really doing a great job because the road has really changed from its previous state.
“Over the last few years, the road is nothing to talk good about because it was so bad, most especially during the rainy season. Accidents do occur along this road often because of the potholes and also motorcyclists are not helping matters, they do ride recklessly despite the poor state. But I am so excited that the government remembered the users (most especially AAUA students) of Medoline road by reconstructing the road.”
Also in her statement, an indigene of Akungba, Mrs Ayipada, who dwells at Medoline area advises the users to maintain the road that has been reconstructed, “It does not only stop at the rebuilding of Medoline road, maintainability and sustainability matters a lot. Drivers and motorcyclists should always drive with care on this road. All hands must be on deck to maintain the good work that has been done on this road.”
