Residents of Ikuomola Street in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos were in high spirits following the state of work on the construction of their road. The road construction which commenced in February 2017, will be completed before end of the month.
During the inspection of the ongoing construction yesterday, June 5 2017, by the Special Adviser to the Governor and the Chief Executive Officer of Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC),Mr Ayotunde Sodeinde, the residents praised Governor Ambode.
According to a resident, Mrs Olawunmi Caroline, the governor’s intervention would put an end to the age long suffering of residents in the area.
“This road was in a deplorable state that even okada riders refused to ply once it rains. Our children that go to school have fallen inside the flood severally. No vehicles can come into the street, but everything changed recently when a bulldozer was seen on the street to commence construction,” she told Nation.
Also another resident, Folashade Adeboye said it was the first time a functional road was being constructed in the area.
“I have lived here since 1982 and this is the first time a road is being constructed here. I am particularly excited because the values of our properties will appreciate,” she said.
