Relief is coming to the residents of Lambo – Lasunwon Community, also called First Gate, which is directly opposite the Lagos State University of Science and Technology (LASUSTECH), formerly Lagos State Polytechnic, as it has been revealed that the road leading into the community has been approved for construction.

Approval of the road project, which has turned life in the community into a nightmare and adversely affecting the social and economic lives of residents, was announced by Mayor Muhydeen Sanwoola, Director General of the iCare Foundation which is the operational arm of the representative of the Ikorodu Federal Constituency, Rep. Babajimi Benson.

Sanwoola announced that contractor will be moving into site to commence the construction before the end of the ongoing Ramadan fasting, while responding to the plea by a resident of the area and the General Secretary, LASPOTECH Alumni Association, Lagos branch, Mr Temidayo Hassan, on THE IMPACT WhatsApp platform.

“Urgent appeal for your intervention concerning the state of Lambo LASUWON road, the major road of the host community of Lagos State University of Science and Technology, Ikorodu, Lagos State. The road has deteriorated significantly, causing immense hardship and danger to residents, commuters, and businesses in the area. Thank you”, Mr Hassan pleaded.

Hassan, who is also a lecturer, called the attention of Senator Tokubo Abiru, the Ikorodu – born Senator representing the Lagos East SenatorialDistrict, Honourable Jimi Benson, representative of the Ikorodu Federal Constituency, Honourable Gbolahan Ogunleye, representative of the Ikorodu Constituency I in the Lagos State House of Assembly and Hon. Adeola Banjo, Chairman, Ikorodu North LCDA, to his appeal.

Mayor Sanwoola, who was recently confirmed as the Special Assistant to Gov. Babajide Sanwo – Olu, responding on behalf of Rep. Benson, said:

“Lambo Lasunwon is already approved for construction. We have met with the community stakeholders, and the contractor has been to site for measurement”, he said.

“The contractor will move to site before the end of Ramadan”, Mayor Muhydeen confirmed.

Meanwhile, the revelation has been generating commendations for Rep. Benson who has facilitated and completed over 40 roads, the latest being the Igbogbo/Offin/Oreta and Lucky Fibre roads in Igbogbo/Bayeku and Ikorodu North LCDA, respectively.

Ganiu Hameed, speaking, said:

“With @Rep JB, Lagos is in good hands…”.

President, Organisation of Party Entertainers of Nigeria (OPEN), Omoba Gbagba Qudus, said that the federal lawmaker has been raising the bar of representation, adding that he is an exceptional politician.

“@Rep JB, you’ve continued to raise the bar beyond limit. We hope one-day, God will answer our inner prayers by giving us your replica to blow Ikorodu to the world. In actual fact, whoever that will meet this outstanding record you’re setting, must work extra miles. I’m still in search of your kind of political leader and yet to see one. Probably my search is limited”, he said.

“I know if you’re given bigger opportunities, you will turn things around beyond this that we are seeing. May God continue to bless you and your household for this your kind heart. Amen.

“You can equally be giving us same excuses we’ve been having in the past but you never did. Your school of thoughts is so exceptional”.

A young political mobiliser in Ikorodu North LCDA, Prince Adedoyin Jokotex, also expressed appreciation for the efforts of the lawmaker in making inner roads motorrable.

“All we can say is to thank you and continue praying for you. You have saved lkorodu from inner roads decay. We are thankful”.
