The Save Lagos Group (SLG) has written a strongly-worded letter to Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, over the bad state of roads in the metropolis of the state. It said that the poor state of the affected roads “makes residents to be encountering horrible experiences to reach their various destinations on daily basis.”

SLG called on the government for immediate action on the reconstruction of the roads across the length and breadth of the state because of the high volume of commercial activities.

It also condemned the shoddy job of some contractors handling ongoing road projects in some parts of the state. The group equally condemned the neglect of some areas by the government, “particularly Ikorodu communities where Governor Ambode claimed as his constituency during the 2015 governorship election.”

SLG made its feelings known in a letter dated Monday, 24th of October, 2016 with the title, “The Urgent Need of Igbogbo, Awesu, Orire-Abosan, Offin, Oreta, Baiyeku, Ebute, Adamo and Araromi communities of Ikorodu Town-A call for Immediate Action”. The letter signed by Convener of the group, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, said that the various communities lack the physical presence of the State Government in terms of social amenities like good roads, portable pipe borne water and so on.

According to the letter, “It is noteworthy to call your attention to the imperative needs of the people of Igbogbo, Awesu, Orere-Abosan, Offin, Oreta, Baiyeku, Ebute, Adamo and Araromi communities, all under Igbogbo-Baiyeku LCDA, Ikorodu North Local Government. These aforementioned communities, based on our environmental research, are lacking good roads. It was discovered that all the access roads to the aforementioned communities are nothing to write home about.

“Your Excellency, Sir, it was a nasty experience on the day a research work brought us to these aforementioned communities. We spent three to four hours before our car could be brought out from the dragon pity that has now become a death trap.”

Governor Ambode in a letter dated 7th November, 2016 acknowledged the receipt of the SLG’s letter. He said that the letter has been forwarded to the Honourable Commissioner, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, for necessary action.
