Residents of Sangotedo excited with Okojie road

Published by Tribune on Mon, 27 Feb 2012

Residents of Sangotedo community, Ibeju Lekki in Eti Osa East Local Government Area of Lagos State trooped out enmass last Tuesday, rejoicing over the newly commissioned road named after the Prelate of Catholic Church, Nigeria, Cardinal Anthony Olubunmi Okojie.One of the residents, who is also a member of Catholic church, Mr. Reuben Cole, said that the new road had given the community a new look as it created accessibility to the Monastery newly built by the church.The State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, while inaugurating the road, said that the government had deemed it fit to handover the road to the cleric to create access to the Monastery for the purpose of seeking God face.According to the governor, the dual carriageway with a length of 2.75Km and width of 20m is the first phase of the project and will soon be expanded to the Atlantic Ocean to open up the various estates in the community.He explained that the construction of the road was conceived to provide access to the church and also open up the entire area including adjoining New Town Development projects in Eti Osa LCDA of the state.Fashola noted that the road had generated job opportunities for Lagos residents and also promoted inter-cultural relationship and opportunity for local engineers to learn new skills.The governor, however, warned owners of various illegal structures in the area to remove their buildings, saying government would not hesitate to pull down any illegal house in the community.While calling on residents to pay their taxes regularly, Fashola said that government could only provide befitting infrastructure if the citizens would not evade taxes.Earlier, the state Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, had described the event as another manifestation of the present administration to link Lagos together through beautiful roads.
