Residents of Bada, Ishefun, Aiyetoro, others send SOS to govt
They are appealing to the government to make their towns accessible with a view to promoting commercial activities in the area.
Meanwhile, inhabitants of Ayobo have applauded the efforts of the government with the successful completion of the road from Ipaja but are also asking for rehabilitation of the roads that link Ayobo with Bada, Ishefun and Aiyetoro.
“Lagos State government truly deserves commendation for the successful completion of Ipaja -Ayobo Road,” a resident, Gbenga Abiodun said
“Rehabilitation of the road from Moshalashi roundabout to Ipaja, where a new roundabout was constructed was perfect. Then, the road construction from Ipaja to the market place at Ayobo, where another roundabout was fixed also deserves an applause,” he added.
The Guardian revealed, however, that an attempt to link Bada or Ishefun from Megida Bus Stop at Ayobo would disappoint any traveller coming from Iyana Ipaja.
This is because from Megida Bus Stop to Bada, is almost a ‘write off.’
“Whenever it rains, tricycles and motorcycles that are mostly the means of transport from Megida Bus Stop to Bada, Ishefun and Aiyetoro would have to abandon that road because of flood. Now that the rain is yet to begin in earnest, motorcycle and tricycle operators find it difficult to ply the route.
A motorcycle operator at Ishefun, who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “Whenever it rains heavily, we abandon this Megida –Ishefun Road and pass through Ayobo.
“Even the Ayobo axis is not better because whenever it rains, it becomes heavily flooded. It is always traumatic and because we do not have any other road to take, we try to make a way.
