The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has appealed to the Federal Government to repair the road linking Akure in Ondo State with Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti capital.

Fayose, in a statement by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, in Ado Ekiti said the road was in a deplorable state and requiring urgent intervention.

He said the road was too important to the economy of Ondo and Ekiti States as well as the well-being of the people of both states to be neglected.

He called on the Minister of Works, Babatunde Fashola, to give the road the required attention, noting that in the last one year, the road has become so bad that only people who are unmindful of its deplorable state use it.
