The chairman of Ayobo-Ipaja Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, South WestÂ Nigeria, Prince Bisi Yusuf, has assured residents that succour will soon come to them asÂ regards the deplorable state of roads in the area.
Reacting to the outcry of people in the area, the council boss enlightened that the roads inÂ question belong to the state but revealed that his LCDA had commenced palliative measuresÂ while awaiting the state governmentâ€™s presence.
He told Lagos Bulletin yesterday that the state governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola had alreadyÂ earmarked the Ayobo-Ipaja road for construction, stressing that work would commence thereÂ after the completion of Mosalasi-Idimu road in Alimoso Local Government Area.
Yusuf disclosed that Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA on its part, is not resting on its oars as it hasÂ embarked on palliative measure to make the road motorable from Ayetoro bridge to AbesanÂ Estate gate which is the boundary it shared with Mosan-Okunola council.
â€œWe know what our people are going through and we are going through them together, but myÂ ever performing governor has assured us of the construction of Ayobo-Ipaja road soon afterÂ the completion of Mosalasi-Idimu road.
â€œI use this medium to appeal to our people to persevere and be patient as we have commencedÂ palliative measures to reduce their suffering. We have commenced the filling and grading ofÂ the road from Ayetoro boundary to Abesan Estate gate, even beyond our boundary,â€ PrinceÂ Yusuf pleaded.
