Lawal restores Obalende’s streetlights after 20 Years of darkness
In his speech at the commissioning of the rejuvenated street lights on January 1, Fuad said he was committed to the completion of the project, especially as he spent his formative years in Obalende, a community that was then flourishing, adding that the project was conceived as part of his administration’s goals to deliver dividends of democracy to the people and restore the community to its former glory.
He stated that the restoration of the streetlights would enable residents to live in a crime-free environment and enjoy prolonged business hours, which would help to increase revenue for business owners.
Obalende was once the host community to the seat of power in Nigeria during the military era before the federal capital was relocated to Abuja by the former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. on December 12, 1991.
Before then, Obalende was a bustling community and centre of attraction, where businesses flourished and stayed open all night, while residents enjoyed maximum security, among others.
