When the construction started on Ogbere Tioya Bridge, almost everyone lost hope – the residents and even the temporal passers-by. Most of the traders who sell their wares around changed their locations since people no longer buy at their various designated shops. They moved close to both ends of the bridge in order to eke out living. The construction dragged more than scheduled, and the hardship of the peoples seemed unending. However, it was the intervention of the chivalrous Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde like a deus ex machina that ended the tragic peripety of the people of Ona Ara local Government.
Of course, the hardship confronting the people was subdued with the successful completion of the bridge but birthed another with the upgrading of the singular road network to double carriage. Over the year, the traders have been accustomed with the area. In fact, another appellation that signifies a novel Bus Stop was coined, BORDER. The location apparently turned undesignated market and the sellers and the buyers become so comfortable doing their transactions easily at “the Border.”
Nevertheless, since the population of the people at the location has increased and they are not ready to leave any time soon then it becomes necessary for things to be done to better the lives of people who contribute immensely to the economic growth of the people. This singular reason spurred the ideating executive Chairman of Ona Ara local Government to create a market at this location with ready-made toilet and abattoir.
The two-face toilets at both ends would ease the hardship and cushion pains of the users around, and the abattoir would make meat available to the people of Ona Ara local Government consumptions. This made me conclude that “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
