The Executive Chairman
of Somolu Local Government, Hon. Abdul Hamed Salawu (Dullar), had earlier this
week approved the rehabilitation of Bashua road in the community.
The Bashua road is a road that would be rehabilitated with new two-sided drainage system from Morocco road to link the motorable Araromi street, making the road to stretch across six major roads, making them to be accessible and motorable.
The 392 metre road will run from Morocco road through Alade, Awoseyin, Adebiyi, Sanusi and Anuoluwapo streets, making them easy to link up with Araromi street of Somolu Local Government Area.
Last week Friday (Good Friday), despite being a holiday, the Executive Chairman was at work on the Bashua road to sensitize the community and traders who used the opportunity of the dilapidated state of the road to turn it to stalls. He admonished the residents and traders that the rehabilitation of the road is to the benefit of the community urging them to cooperate with the construction workers.
However, many residents of Somolu agreed that the construction of Bashua road will bring activities to the Bashua road which had not been motorable for over two decades. New culverts will be built on Alade, Awoseyin, Adebiyi, Sanusi, Anuoluwapo and Araromi junctions of the Bashua road to ensure free flow of waste water on these streets.
The Chairman has also promised the people of Somolu that work will soon start on Sanusi, Ajose and Bolaji Omupo streets.
He said he’s aware that Ajose Street around Orile Somolu is in a terrible state and the cries and calls of residents would soon be heeded very soon. He added that the neglect of Bolaji Omupo in Ijebutedo area of Somolu is over as he saw the road during one of his night inspection across Somolu.
“We will try our best to make sure all roads in Somolu are linking to each other”, Dullar assured.
