Ogudu residents reject commissioning of partially rehabilitated road

By Shittu David

The residents of Emmanuel High Street in Ogudu, yesterday June 28, 2016 came out in numbers to protest an attempt by Lagos Government officials to commission a partially rehabilitated road, chanting that half-done road is not a well done job.

The residents, who had positioned themselves in the early hours of the morning at the bad spots of the road, claimed that the Lagos State government abandoned the uttermost deplorable part of the road.

Last weekend Honourable Adebayo Osinowo representing Kosofe constituency 1, who promised that the road will be fixed after InsideMainland did a report on the deplorable state of the road in May 2016 tweeted pictures of the completed road.tweet1

The aggrieved residents are calling on Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s led Lagos State Government to complete their road and save them from the scourge of the horribly bad road and potholes that their street has become in the last 20 years.

The chairman of the Residence Association, Prophet Ezekiel Amuson, told ‎InsideMainland correspondent that the protest was as a result of unfairness by the State government to construct only part of their road, under pretense that the road have been completed.

Another resident, Mrs. Stella Balogun said “we need the present government to come to our help to rehabilitate the road for us, we have been suffering from bad road for almost 20yrs and we have written letters to the appropriate government office many time but they do not do anything”.
