I want to personally appeal to you to continue to give cooperation to them so that the road would be completed within the schedule time” , she pleaded.
“They should trust in our governor who has assured them of compensation for the demolished properties. We thank God that we have a listening Governor in person of Mr Akinwuni Ambode and he is going to do as promised. The road that is being reconstructed is in our own interest”, she stated.
“When completed, the terrible traffic that we have been experiencing in that axis would be a thing of the past; our economic lives would also improves likewise the social activities.
