The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has stated that his government and the Lagos State government are still in talks with the Federal Government for the release of the rehabilitation of Lagos-Sango Ota-Abeokuta expressway and Sagamu-Ogijo-Ikorodu road.
The governor made the statement at the turning of the sod of the14km Ijebu-Ode-Epe road which links Ogun and Lagos states from the Epe end of Lagos State and Ijebu-Ode-Ikoto axis of Ogun State.
He said, “We will unveil two major roads in Ota, Ogun West Senatorial District, in a matter of days. These roads also link our state with Lagos.”
He also noted that the reconstruction of the road would not only ease traffic on the Lagos-Sagamu-Ore expressway, but would also bring relief to people by saving ‘’Nigerians valuable time in traffic.’’
He further said that the dual-carriage road has 10 lanes – four lanes on each side with one pull-out section, while the toll plaza comprises 14 lanes for easy payment of tolls. He added that it will engender the socio-economic development of the state and communities along the road corridor.
Meanwhile, Governor Dapo Abiodun emphasized that his administration would not embark on frivolous spending and will rather allocate resources to projects that have direct and positive impact on the people.
