The Executive Chairman of Ikorodu local government, Hon Wasiu Adeshina has led a high-powered delegation of the Ikorodu local government management team on an inspection tour of the delapadited Agura-Gberibe road in the council area.

The council team comprises of the Council vice Chairman, Hon Folashade Olabanji-Oba, Council Manager, Engr Martins Odupekan and Leader of the Ikorodu legislative chamber, Hon Ajayi Adebowale, who represented the Councillors.

Other members of the team were the Council Engineer, Clerk of the House, Council Treasurer, HOD Environment, HOD Budget and Works among others.

The team inspected all the bad spots on the road, which once served as a link road to Imota LCDA and Ijebu Ode in Ogun State.

The team took notes of some factors responsible for the complete breakdown of the road, with a view to address them before the commencement of palliative work on the road.

Of particular mention was the fact that some residents around the One-Fold area in the community has erected structures on the canal in the area, forcing water to settle on the road, leading to serious damage. The Chairman has directed the HOD Environment to serve the erring residents a notice from the local government.

In a chat with Ikorodu Oga Radio, Hon Adeshina noted that the Agura-Gberigbe road was in a complete mess, hence requires immediate palliatives, ahead of the planned rehabilitation of the road by the Lagos State Government.

‘This Agura-Gberigbe major road is in total mess. It is terribly bad and has cut off over one million residents of Agura-Gberigbe from other parts of the local government, especially the Ikorodu Central’, he said.

The Chairman stressed that the visit of the local government was prompted by the ‘cry of the CDAs in this area for an immediate intervention from the local government’.

Speaking further, he stated that, ‘both the local and State Government are willing and ready to rehabilitate this road. It is only a question of time, we will soon move to site and make this road motorable within the next three (3) months’, he promised.

Some residents of the area who witnessed the visit have appealed to the local government to carry out an immediate palliative work on the road as it has lead to the collapse of business and economic activities in the area.
