Governor of Lagos state, Akinwunmi Ambode  Monday commissioned three newly constructed roads in Ajeromi-Ifelodun local government area of the state.


Independent observed that the newly constructed roads: Molade  Street, Temidire Street and Prince Rabiu Adio Crescent were constructed with walkways, medians, street lights and standard drainage systems.


The aim is to improve access within the community, boost security and increase socio-economic well-being of residents of Ajeromi.


In his remarks at the event, Ambode stated that the construction of these roads is part of the project 114 roads in all the 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Areas across the state.


Represented by Hon Isiaq Oluwatoyin Suarau, commissioner for Agriculture in the state, Ambode said that LASG started the projects by first asking the Community Development Associations (CDA) in various local government areas in the state to identify their needs. This he said gave birth to the 114 roads identified across the state for construction.


In her remarks, The Sole Administrator, Ajeromi-Ifelodun local government area, Mrs Fehintola Danmole-Akaba, noted that the epoch-making event is in pursuant of the policy of the governor to deliver dividends of democracy to the door-steps of the people of Lagos, via quality services and infrastructural development.


Danmole-Akaba,  who commended the governor for transforming his electioneering promises into reality, used the occasion to update the community members of some of the completed capital projects embarked upon since taking over office as the Sole Administrator of Ajeromi-Ifelodun LGA in June.


According to her, “some of these projects include the construction of roads and drainages at Kukoyi and Okun-Owa Streets and also the construction of over 15 box culverts at Titus Ofondu, Ibafon, Oluwa Primary school, Wowo and Olowosun, among others within the Ajeromi community”.


She however, enjoins the residents of the community to be prompt in the payment of their rates and levies so as to promote self-reliance and sustainability as against the backdrop of the nation’s mono-economy.
