Group hails Lagos LG boss for over Agboyi Rd devt

The Joint Action for Good Governance, an advocacy group, has applauded the Chairman of Agboyi-Ketu Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State, Mr Dele Oshinowo, for the successful rehabilitation of Agboyi Road and other grassroots development initiatives.

The National Vice President of JAGG, Mr Abdulwaheed Odunuga, in a statement on Friday in Lagos said that the advocacy group was committed to fostering transparency and accountability in governance.

Odunuga said that the group undertook a comprehensive assessment of ongoing infrastructural road projects and concerns within Agboyi-Ketu and found out that the council boss had affected lives positively.

“This report aims to commend the laudable efforts of the Chairman of Agboyi-Ketu on the rehabilitation of Agboyi Road while raising critical questions regarding other long-delayed projects and potential risks to the community.

“The timely completion of this project demonstrates a commitment to the welfare of residents and contributes significantly to the enhancement of the local infrastructure.

“While acknowledging the commendable progress made on Agboyi Road, we cannot overlook several longstanding concerns and queries related to other crucial projects within the local government area.

“We recognise and appreciate the positive strides made in Agboyi-Ketu, particularly in the rehabilitation of Agboyi Road,” Odunuga said.

Expressing concern over the delay in the construction of Demurin St.,  Odunuga, however, urged the state government to provide clarity on the reasons behind the prolonged construction period and offer a concrete timeline for its completion.

“The apparent abandonment of the Church Street project is disconcerting.

“The lack of progress on this vital road poses inconveniences to residents and raises questions about the government’s commitment to completing initiated projects.

“We call for immediate attention to this matter,” he said.

Odunuga also expressed concern over collapsed Alapere Estate Bridge.

“The collapse of the Alapere Estate Bridge, persisting for almost two months, poses significant risks to pedestrians and motorists as accident, traffic and crime victims are being recorded.

“The lack of prompt action to address this critical infrastructure failure is a matter of grave concern.

“We urgently call on the relevant authorities to expedite the reconstruction of the bridge to avert potential disasters,” he said.

He implored the Lagos State Government to address residents’ concerns regarding Demurin St., Church St., and the collapsed Alapere Estate Bridge.

The activist, however, stressed the need for collaborative efforts of government officials and concerned citizens in ensuring the sustained development of local communities.

According to him, JAGG remains committed to advocating for transparency, accountability, and the overall well-being of residents. (NAN)
