Kwara Gov’t To Open Idiagbon Flyover To Road Users


The much-talked about Tunde Idiagbon Flyover bridge along Tanke Road, Ilorin, Kwara State will be temporarily opened for use during the forthcoming convocation of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN).

Though the multi-million naira project is still under construction, it will be opened for use between October 16 and 18, 2023, to ensure seamless vehicular movement to and from the University of Ilorin.

The vice chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof. Wahab Egbewole (SAN), disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.

He praised the state governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, over his directive to relevant authorities to open the Tanke Flyover bridge from Monday, October 16 up till Occtober 23, 2023 for seamless traffic along the University Road.

Egbewole, who gave the commendation in a statement signed by the university’s director of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kunle Akogun, noted that the directive was in response to a solicitation letter earlier written to the governor by the University’s management.

He said he got hints of the governor’s directive from his interactions with some top state government’s officials.

Egbewole said that the directive would greatly facilitate vehicular movement during the university’s forthcoming convocation ceremonies slated for Friday and Saturday and Monday, October 20, 21 and 23, 2023.

He also expressed gratitude to the governor for his promise to mend the bad portions along the University Road up to the institution’s Main Gate before the scheduled convocation days.

He pointed out that the promptness with which the governor responded to the University management’s appeal had marked him out as a listening leader.
