Residents of New Site Estate, Ijegun-Imore, Satellite Town in Ori-Ade Local Council Development Area of Lagos State have appealed to the state government to come to provide basic social amenities in the area.
Making the appeal on behalf of the community are members of Ohana-Eze-Ndi Igbo, during the celebration of the successful conduct o this yearâ€™s general election recently.
Sir Emeka Iloh, leader of the group, who is also Ochendo Ndi Igbo, commended the Governor Babatunde Fashola led-administration in the state on the development projects embarked upon and for making the state more habitable for the residents.
He particularly commended the governor for the ongoing construction of Mile 2-Badagry expressway, saying it will ease traffic congestion often experience in that axis.
However, he appealed to the governor to come to the communityâ€™s aid on some challenges facing them, such as roads, health centres, schools and potable water, among others.
â€œWe want to draw the attention of His Excellency to some of the challenges facing us in our community. There is need for an alternative road to the only accessible road leading to the community as this would serve as link to other neighbouring communities.
â€œWe are also earnestly soliciting for your kind intervention on health centre, schools, market, electricity, potable drinking water and additional wards and polling units for the coming local government election.
â€œWe are appealing to you to remember us for these amenities as we also pledge our unalloyed and continuous support for your government in the state,â€ the group leader stated.
