By Lukman Olabiyi
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu yesterday officially opened the rehabilitated 2.5km Oba Sekumade Road, Ipakodo, Ikorodu to public use.
He also opened the reconstructed section of TOS Benson Road.
Governor Sanwo-Olu, who described the event as a proof of purposeful leadership and development, restated his administration’s commitment to ensuring accelerated development.
He promised that all ongoing projects would be completed as promised, adding that the ground-breaking ceremony for the Fourth Mainland Bridge would be done soon.
Sanwo-Olu also thanked the people for voting for him, Deputy Governor Obafemi Hamzat, and other contestants of the All Progressives Congress (APC), describing his victory as a testament to the people’s confidence in the party.
Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure to the governor, Mrs. Aramide Adeyoye, said the government decided to take action due to complaints from commuters on the condition of the road, coupled with the perennial flooding experienced due to inadequate drainage system in the area. She added that the road would help resolve the perennial flooding issues around Ogolonto, Omologede, Ipakodo and environs, as well as promote effective intermodal and integrated system.
In their goodwill messages, stakeholders, which included lawmakers and royal fathers, thanked Governor Sanwo-Olu for fulfilling his promises to the people, and pleaded that other roads, such as Agric-Ishawo Road be included in the government’s rehabilitation plans.
