“We are also going to ensure that the Ikorodu – Shagamu Road is completed. I am thoroughly working on that. I met with the Arab Contractors two days ago, and I am talking with the members of the Appropriation Committee, and they have assured me.
“I have seen it, worked on it. There is going to be a supplementary budget for it, and they are going to start working on it this month. You will be seeing further action.
“Aside from that, I have a very big project that will be commencing in the next few weeks in Ikorodu”.
