Ambode Walks Around Lagos, Promises Effectiveness On Reconstruction Of Roads

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has walked around
three major local governments in Lagos, where reconstruction of roads are been
done out of the three and promised the roads in question will soon be
completed. He made the statement when he visited Alimosho and Gbagada, and
promised the people of Oshodi that ‘troubled’ brown streets will be reconstructed
as a matter of fact in the next seven days.  When he visited Somolu/Gbagada the Governor
“We are not pleased with the slow pace of work in this
area,” he said while telling the contractors that a slow pace of job will not
be tolerated.
 “I want to tell the
contractors that we would not accept anything that will make life difficult for
the residents,” he said.

At Alimosho, the Governor said;
“In the course of my campaign, I came to this neighbourhood
three times asking you to vote for me. I am back here to let you know that this
road that is so important to the economy of this area, we would complete it
within the next three months,” said Mr. Ambode.
“I want to appeal to all our people living here. The
contractor is going to work day and night and also create palliative for you to
be able to use the road while he is working. Please cooperate with them to
carry out their work, it’s for our own general good.”
At Oshodi, the governor, after walking through the stretch
of Brown Street, ordered the reconstruction of the road.

“Nobody should trade on this road henceforth and stop
spreading your market on the road. I have seen what you experience on daily
basis, that is why I took it upon myself to walk through Brown Street and I can
assure you that work would commence within the next seven days,” he told the
traders and residents.
The governor today also approved the termination of the
concession granted by the Lagos State Development and Property Corporation
(LSDPC) to Afriland Properties for the redevelopment of the Falomo Shopping
Centre, Ikoyi. In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna,
the Governor said that the decision was carried out based on a recent discovery
that the concession was grossly detrimental to the interests of the people of
the state. 
According to him, only N50million was paid by the concessionaire,
Afriland Properties, for a 50-year lease of the property belonging to the
government. He said the State Government as custodian of the interests of
Lagosians is committed to the restructuring of the LSDPC to ensure it begins to
provide positive capital returns to the State Government for the ultimate
benefit of the people.
