Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has asked a House of Representatives member, Hon. Segun Adekoya, to stop work on a street project he embarked on in his constituency.
Adekoya is the lawmaker representing Ijebu-North/Ijebu-East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency.
It was gathered that the lawmaker had embarked on the renovation of Igan street in Ago-Iwoye, a place under his constituency.
But, the Ogun State Government, in a letter signed on Friday by the Special Adviser to Governor Abiodun on Works and Infrastructure, Engr Adesina Babatunde A., instructed the lawmaker to stop work on the street immediately for not getting approval prior to beginning work on it.
The letter, which was addressed to Hon. Adekoya directly was referenced, AD.1136/7 and titled: “ILLEGAL RECONSTRUCTION/REHABILITATION OF STATE ROADS.”
The letter reads: “I am directed to apprise you that it has come to the knowledge of the Ogun State Government the prohibited reconstruction/rehabilitation of Igan Road in Ago-Iwoye, which you have embarked upon without obtaining prior approval from the Ogun State Government, knowing fully well that the street is a country road.

Contacted, Hon. Adekoya confirmed the development of Everyday POST in a message.
However, he confided in our correspondent that the correspondence had been withdrawn.
