Mr Adejare explained that, the new South West railway system will span across towns and villages in the region with a view to meeting the transportation needs of the people, most especially the farmers who always encounter some challenges while taking their farm produce to urban areas.

He added that a new park management system put in place by governor Ademola Adeleke’s administration is to eradicate insecurity, and all forms of crises that usually lead to destruction of property and killings when rival unions groups attack each other at motor parks
