Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, today, personally inspected the Ikotun-Ejigbo road, expressing surprise over the level of damage on the road.
Governor Ambode, who described the state of the road as unacceptable, assured residents that the road will get a face lift very soon.
“I have come personally to see for myself the state of Ejigbo road and it is very clear that this is totally unacceptable and there is no other remedy than to let our officials come to site within the next one week and the people of this neighbourhood should be guaranteed that work will start on Ikotun-Ejigbo-Isolo axis ‎within the next seven days”.
He said the road was too strategic as it serves as a major link road connecting several local governments, hence it could not be left at the state which it was.
The governor therefore directed the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works, Mr. Paul Bamgboye-Martins and the General Manager, Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC), Mr. Ayotunde Sodeinde to move immediately to the area to commence work within the next forty eight hours.
He also appealed to residents for understanding when the construction commences, saying that the State Public Works will be mobilised to provide palliative measure to ease the traffic gridlock often experienced by motorists plying the route on a daily basis due to the condition of the road.
“We would make sure that you have immediate relief and that in the course of the rehabilitation the people in the neighbourhood should just bear with us‎ but you can take it for granted that work will commence immediately after Ramada.” [myad]
