Residents of Lekki Peninsula axis of Lagos State have appealed to the Federal Government and the governor-elect, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu to rescue them from the untold hardship they face in their communities.

The appeal was made at a town hall meeting where the residents presented a document tagged: ‘Building a better community for citizens of Lekki,’ to the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and Sanwo-Olu.

Speaking at the meeting, president, Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association (LERSA), Olorogun James Emadoye, said the recommendations were made to ameliorate the hardship confronting residents in recent time.

“Now that elections are over, it is time to put in place a strategic plan to govern the state. In this memo, we revisited some of the major challenges in our axis and we offer a set of actionable proposals and easy to accomplish plan by the new administration to reduce the daily suffering of residents and stakeholders, who are increasingly agitated and disoriented by the deplorable state of major essential services in the community, despite the intolerable taxes and levies by the government on Lekki axis,” he said.

Emadoye disclosed that recommendations by the community to the state government were not new, saying it was first presented to the outgoing administration in April 2018, but nothing was done about it. He revealed that a wide range of recommendations were made on tolling, transportation, roads, traffic management, environment, security, education, basic services, housing and power supply. LERSA is an association of over 77 gated and un-gated estates from 1004 Estate to Epe.
