Residents, motorists and other road users plying Mokuolu Street, Ogba, Lagos State, South  West Nigeria, have called on authorities of Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government and Ojodu Local  Council Development Area, to jointly rehabilitate the deplorable road.

Some of those who spoke with Lagos Bulletin expressed concern over the road, which has  been abandoned for a long time without any effort to repair it.

Mr. Boniface Andrew, a commercial motorcyclist plying the area, claimed that officials of  the two local governments usually collect tariffs from commercial motorcyclists while no  effort has been made to repair the bad road.

Boniface advised Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola to compel the two local governments to  give the road a face-lift.

“The problem of this road deserves urgent attention. I think it is time for Governor  Babatunde Raji Fashola to compel both local governments to rehabilitate the road because   their officials collect levies from us and as such, the governor should make it  compulsory for them to repair the road,” Andrew stated.

A resident of the area who craved anonymity said none of the two local governments made  any effort to repair the road despite the levies their officials collect from residents.

He lamented that since the road went bad, coming in and going out of the street has  become a difficult task and has therefore resorted to parking his vehicle at home until  the road is repaired.

Lagos Bulletin observed that motorists have abandoned the road and is now only used by  commuter vehicles commonly called kabukabu and commercial motorcycles popularly called  okada.
