Ojokoro, Ifako-Ijaiye LCDA is a strategic settlement with a fast growing population and huge need for infrastructural renewal.
Hence on assumption of office, we made a commitment to residents to revisit the contract for the 31 network of roads that add up to a total of 20.216 kilometres in length, which was was awarded in 2017, but with construction at a standstill for the past two years leaving not only the roads in deplorable condition, but hapless residents in distress while plying the roads.
Today, six months after we gave our word, we commissioned and formally opened the 31 network of roads in four locations, including Odun Alayo/Funsho Owoyemi Junction, Edun Akara/Olorisade Junction, Adenekan/Rabiu Junction and Udeh/Brown Rotary Junction.
Prior to the completion of these important projects, traffic in Ojokoro area grew tremendously considering the population implosion and its attendant vehicular density.
Now that we have fulfilled our promise and completely transformed the roads, residents can breath a sigh of relief and go about their day to day activities without the perennial traffic gridlock that had plagued them in the past.
This event is an indication of our resolve to complete and deliver projects inherited from the last administration while also embarking on new ones as we deliver on our promise for a Greater Lagos.
