Residents Task Govt Over Road Completion


Residents of Adekunle-Deen Street in Apapa/Iganmu Local Council Development Area of Lagos  State, South West Nigeria, are facing a big problem as moving in and out of the street  has become a difficult task for them, following non completion of the road on the street.

It was learnt that the construction of the road, which began about a year ago, has done  more harm to the residents than good, as both human and vehicular movement is being  hampered.

Some residents that spoke with Lagos Bulletin absolved the council authority of the  blame, claiming the road belongs to the state and wondered why it was left uncompleted.

They therefore called on the state government to ensure that the road is completed as  soon as possible to ease movement in the area.

According to Bidemi Ogunmuyiwa, a resident, “when the Ministry of Works started the  construction of the drains, we were all happy about the development, thinking it would  not be long to complete. But to our surprise, immediately the drains were completed, work  on the road stopped.

“The situation is becoming unbearable because any time it rains, we can no longer go out  because the whole street is always flooded. Even some compounds also get flooded because  the water can not get into the drains.

“We therefore appeal to Governor Fashola to come to our rescue and complete the project  as it is fast becoming an environmental nuisance.”

A staff of the local government who craved for anonymity could not say much on why the  road was abandoned, but also appealed to the state government to order the Ministry of  Works and Infrastructure to complete it as scheduled so that the pains experienced by the  residents could become a thing of the past.
