Gov. Gboyega Oyetola of Osun on Thursday flagged off N3.2 billion road rehabilitation project across the state.

Speaking at the event in Ilobu, Irepodun Local Government Area of the state, Oyetola said the project was part of his pledge to deliver good road network across the state to unleash socio-economic development.
