Ikorodu Federal Constituency has continued to experience the dividends of democracy, especially from the federal government, as Rep. Babajimi Benson, who is representing the constituency, yet, again, kicked – off the 1 kilometre Ori-Okuta/Agric/Eyita by-pass of Ikorodu West LCDA.

The road, Ori – Okuta road links the Agric – Isawo Road in Ikorodu West Local Council Development Area (LCDA) which is under construction by the Lagos State Government, to Eyita in Ikorodu North LCDA. The project, upon completion, will further reduce the volume of traffic on the Ikorodu –Lagos Road/Benson/Ikorodu garage roundabout.

The road construction, facilitated by the three – term lawmaker, was flagged – off on Saturday, December 9, 2023, with the Special Adviser on Local Government & Community Development, Dr Nurudeen Agbaje and the State Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Muhydeen Jokomba, in attendance.

Benson has facilitated the construction of multiple roads across the six Local Government and LCDAs in Ikorodu Division, since his second term as the representative of Ikorodu. The road networks have provided easy access within the metropolis, making it easy to connect major roads, and also reduced traffic in and around Ikorodu.
