As a means to reduce road accident on Osogbo township roads, road workers with the City Bus Olorunda/Osogbo Town Service (Korope) have patched all the potholes on the affected roads.
To ensure the success of the humanitarian service, members of the transport union in conjunction with Road Transport Employers Association of Nigerian (RTEAN), National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and National Association of Co-operative Transporters (NACT) took an active part in the exercise.
Among the roads patched were Ola-Iya, Odi-Olowo, Gbaemu, Ita-Olokan, Atelewo and Igbona.
The state Chairman of the union, Mr. Yemi Onifade, lamented that many roads in Osogbo have been abandoned by government road maintenance agencies.
According to him said the patched roads had caused several accidents and had become impassable for motorists.
