Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday inspected the Ikotun-Ejigbo road with a promise to the residents that work on the dilapidated road will commence in one week time.
Ambode, who described the state of the road as unacceptable, assured residents who trooped out to hear from him that the road will get a face lift.
“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.”
The governor who appealed to residents for understanding when the construction commences, said efforts will be made towards providing relief.
“We would make sure that you have immediate relief. We appeal that in the course of the rehabilitation the people in the neighbourhood bear with us but work will commence immediately after Ramadan,” he assured.
