In a statement released today by the Media aide to the lawmaker, Mr Kabir Rasaq, the collaborative efforts between the representative and the LSPWC, have commenced with the grading of Ire One road, Agunfe and the launch of palliative measures on Ijede, Igbopa/ Ewu-Owa roads.

The lawmaker, according to the statement, is also collaborating with others in the Lagos State House of Assembly, in addressing the deplorable state of roads in Lagos State. Members of the House, on Tuesday, resolved on inviting the LSPWC for discussion on how to address the situation and lessen residents’ suffering.

Recognizing the urgency of these transportation arteries, the Assembly is committed to alleviating the inconvenience faced by commuters and fostering regional economic growth”, he said.
