After months of outcry and agony, palliative work has begun to address the terrible state of the Igbogbo/Bayeku road.
Heavy duty machine moved to site on Friday to begin excavation of drainage to give way for the water which has flooded the road.
THE IMPACT gathered that the palliative work is being carried out by the Igbogbo/Bayeku LCDA in partnership with the Community Development Committee (CDC) and the Dredgers Association of Nigeria, Bayeku branch.
There has been great public outcry, especially by residents and motorists plying the road on a daily basis and others that journeyed to that axis over agonies and sufferings that they encounter on the road.
The last time that the Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, came to commission the Agunfoye Housing Estate and the ultra modern Igbogbo/Bayelu LCDA secretariat, he pledged to do something about the road but nothing has been done since then.
According to a release by Razaq Kabiru Babatunde, the Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman, Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA, the palliative work will last for two weeks.
“Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA, in Public Private Partnership with Community Development Committee (CDC) and dredger association of Nigeria, Baiyeku branch, has commenced palliative work on Baiyeku road”, the statement said.
“The palliative efforts were considered by the stakeholders to make the road motorable before the State Government resumes the wholistic construction of the road.
“Hon. Nuraini Oke-Maja, Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA’s Vice Chairman, in the company of Hon. Ade Bolowotan, the Chief of Staff and Mr. Segun Orelesi, Council Engineer, commended the co-operation by CDC and dredger association”.
