Oluwo of Iwo land, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, on Tuesday, hinted that all necessary arrangements had been concluded by the Oyo and Osun state governments to commence with the reconstruction of the Iwo-Osogbo-Ibadan road next week.
The monarch who made this known while welcoming the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Mohood Olalekan Ishola Balogun who was on a courtesy visit to his palace, expressed optimism that, with the reconstruction of the road, the rapid growth of the state economy would be booming day by day.

I am glad that my eyes are seeing this. You cannot separate Iwo and Ibadan, we are both paramount rulers. There are so many Iwo indigenes who are Baales in Ibadan and with the reconstruction of the road, our relationship would be more cemented.
