Ogun commences palliative work on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
CONCERNED about the plight of commuters on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, the Ogun State Government has embarked on palliative work on bad portions of the expressway.
Speaking during an inspection tour of the ongoing palliative work being carried out by the Ogun State Ministry of Works on the federal road yesterday, Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun said, “In the real sense of it and for me there are no federal people, the people plying this road and other affected Federal roads within our axis are our people. We are all Nigerians and we are already collaborating with the Federal government to contribute our on quota to ensure that this road is fixed.”
The governor who was accompanied on the inspection by his wife, Mrs. Olufunsho Amosun; Ogun State Deputy Governor, Chief (Mrs.) Yetunde Onanuga and members of the Ogun State executive council, assured that the really bad portions of the expressway currently causing major gridlock around the Arepo area will be fixed within three days.
He said this was even more necessary in order to ease traffic on the ever-busy road before this coming weekend when major churches on the expressway are billed to hold their monthly programs that often attract millions of worshippers.
