Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Wednesday said there would be a huge relief for residents along Lagos-Badagry Expressway, as the stretch from Iganmu to Okokomaiko being handled by the state government would be delivered by the middle of the year.
Sanwo-Olu made this known when he commissioned a two-storey healthcare facility, built by Amuwo Odofin Local Government in honour of former First Lady of the state and sitting lawmaker representing Lagos Central District in the Senate, Senator Oluremi Tinubu.
In his address, Governor Sanwo-Olu said: “Lagos has always been a worthy model for the rest of the country in the delivery of quality and people-oriented governance at the local level.
“The idea of a Local Council Development Area (LCDA) system co-existing with the local governments, as pioneered by our leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has not only been a hugely successful political innovation in Lagos, it has also seen enthusiastic replication in other parts of the country.
“The vision is reaping the dividends as seen in the quality of people-oriented projects being delivered to the people of Amuwo-Odofin by the chairman.
“The modern healthcare facility is what our vision for infrastructural renewal of our state looks like. With high-impact projects that cut across many communities and improves quality of life and the ability to earn a legitimate living, Amuwo-Odofin’s landscape is changing for good.”
Governor Sanwo-Olu noted that the bridge components of the expressway are scheduled for completion by the end of this year, including the Iyana-Iba Interchange Bridge initiated to resolve perennial traffic gridlock on the axis.
