Monarch urges action on Ayobo-Igando link road to reduce gridlock in Alimosho
The traditional ruler of Cardoso town in Ayobo-Ipaja Local Council Development Area (LCDA), High Chief Moroof Aremu Owonla, popularly called Kaka, has called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to facilitate the construction of the link road between Ashipa in Ayobo-Ipaja LCDA and Igando in Igando-Ikotun LCDA, in order to reduce gridlock in Alimosho federal constituency and its environs, while bringing infrastructural development to the suburbs.
He noted that the present administration in the state had listed the road among several others for construction, but called for quick commencement of construction, which he believed would further open up economic growth in the area.
He said: “Construction of Ashipa-Igando link road, which is very close to the link road between Lagos and Ogun states in Ayobo, will stop the merry-go-round stress of the people of Cardoso, Baruwa, Ashipa, Bada, Megida and other towns through Moshalasi, Egbeda, Idimu, Isheri before they can access Igando, Iba, LASU and Badagry expressway.
“I want to thank Governor Sanwo-Olu’s administration for its effort so far at developing the state. However, the construction and completion of the road would also reduce the gridlock in the entire Alimosho and bring rapid growth to adjoining communities.”
The monarch further lauded the Lagos State police command for putting in place proactive measures to combat criminal activities in the state. Owonla noted that the commendable crime fighting methods put in place by the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had greatly helped in curbing crime rates in Lagos neighbourhoods associated with street gangs and traffic robberies, among others.
