Under the Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP), a list of property owners who would be impacted by the projected construction of 12 roads around Ekiti State has been started.
The State Project Coordinator, Hon. Sunday Adunmo, signed a statement stating that the exercise would take place from Thursday, November 16, 2023, to Tuesday, November 21, 2023.
According to Adunmo, accurate asset identification would be made easier with the assistance of the Project Affected Persons and other stakeholders, especially in the case of cash crops and physical structures that would be impacted by the proposed construction.
“I am pleased to notify you that the Ekiti State Rural Access and Agricultural Marketing Project (RAAMP) will soon begin building on rural roads in your village. I’m writing to let you know that our RAAMP team members will be in your town from Thursday, November 16, 2023, to Tuesday, November 21, 2023, as part of the project implementation process.
“Identifying people impacted by the construction is the main goal of the visit, especially in the areas of physical structures and cash crops.
Given this, we respectfully ask that, during our tour period, the potential Project Affected Persons (PAPs) whose farms are located along the impacted road corridors be present. This cooperative effort would guarantee a more seamless identification process and help the project be executed successfully, he stated.
