Roughly three days after Lagos state Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode directed relevant government agencies to immediately move to provide palliative work on the deplorable portions of Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, repair work is yet to commence on the road.
Last Friday, Ambode during an unscheduled inspection tour of the road, directed the state’s Ministry of Works and Infrastructure and other relevant agencies to move immediately to site and fix the deplorable road. The directive by the governor was greeted with loud ovation from residents and motorists who were worried that after, the agencies were still foot-dragging.
The governor during the inspection expressed dissatisfaction at the deplorable state of some sections of Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, saying the road was too strategic to the economy of the state and therefore cannot be ignored.
He specifically inspected the bad portions of the road between Berlett and Ilasa, and Cele Bus stop inward Oshodi.
He did not only directed the officials of the Ministry of Works to immediately move to site, but also ordered that palliative measure be put in place to alleviate the sufferings of motorists who have been complaining about the deplorable state of the road through various means.
