Ondo Community Residents Stranded After Rain Washes Off Culvert Linking Town With Other Areas 

Thousands of motorists and residents of Atijere town in Ilaje local government area of Ondo state have been cutoff from the rest of the world as heavy rainfall has washed away culvert linking the community with Ondo State through Ogun state.

As at the time journalists visited the area, it was observed that nobody or vehicle could leave or enter the town since the flood wrecked havoc in the area over the weekend.

Some of the residents who spoke with newsmen appealed to government to urgently come to their aid as their socia-economic activities had been paralysed by the incident.

Speaking on behalf of his people, the traditional ruler of the town, Molokun of Atijere, Oba Samuel Adeoye pleaded with the Ondo State government, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) as well as the Ondo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (OSOPADEC) to urgently rescue the residents.

“This is the only road linking my community and it’s from Ogun state axis. We don’t have any road yet connecting us to Ondo state. We appeal to the Ondo State government, OSOPADEC and NDDC to rescue us. Our people are suffering already over the collapsed culvert.”

Oba Adeoye called for the reconstruction of the culvert as a means of movement in and out of the town should be urgently provided by the authorities.

The monarch also appealed to representatives of Ilaje, Ilaje/Ese-odo federal constituency, Hon Donald Ojogo as well as Senator Jimoh Ibrahim from Ondo South to intervene on behalf of the people, as failure to intervene immediately could lead to food and other economic crises for the residents.

    Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – rovingnaija.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across rovingnaija.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE http://advanceleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Web Visitors Into Leads now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
