The Chairman of the Ikorodu Local Government, Hon. Wasiu Adesina, has continued his aggressive rehabilitation of inner roads in the council with the recent repair of the Isikalu road.
The road, which serves as a link road to the Ayangbure and Olubi roads, both of which connect Ikorodu to other parts of the division, was previously riddled with potholes which gave motorists and other road users difficult time to pass through it.
But with the recent repair work by the Adesina administration, the road has now worn a new look while motorists now have an easy ride on its well asphalted surface.
Since his assumption of office three and half years ago, Hon. Adesina has tremendously impressed in the area of developmental efforts, especially as it regards to the construction and rehabilitation of roads within the Ikorodu community.
He has aggressively ensured the rehabilitation of several inner roads to facilitate free flow of traffic in and out of the community and create alternative accesible routes for the use of the motorists in the event of traffic bottlenecks on the major roads.
Few months back, the council boss commenced the reconstruction of the Anibaba-Sholafun-Owode road.
The drainages on both sides of the road have already been completed while interlocking stones are currently being fixed to ensure that the road last longer and motorable.
Upon completion, the strategic road will enable motorists and other road users to link places like lgbogbo road, Ota Ona, Awolowo Way, Adaraloye and others with ease.
The Adesina led administration has equally rehabilitated many other roads which cut across all the political wards in the council.
Among these Ayanra road (147km), Molupa road (147km), Odugate road, Adaraloye/Ikorodu road, Oluwakemi road in Aga, Igbo Oluwo road, and Ginti road in Agura axis.
Presently, the council is currently embarking on the construction of drainages in several areas of the community to ensure that erosion is properly channelled during rainfall to prevent flooding of roads.Among these areas are Iponyenwa street, First bank axis along Lagos road, Ayanbadejo street and Toko-Taya Amure street in Lowa, Ikorodu.
Aside road rehabilitation, Hon Adeshina has also embarked on other developmental projects among which are the reconstruction of the 100-year-old Itunmoja bridge which collapsed recently, lighting and construction of perimeter fencing and borehole water facilities at the lkorodu Cemetery, construction of perimeter fencing and standard toilet facilities at the Salvation Army Primary school along Sabo road, lkorodu.
While speaking with Oriwu Sun recently in an interview, Hon. Adeshina also revealed plans by his administration to carry out palliative work on Etunrenren road very soon.
He said that some potholes have already been identified on the major road but that they are avoiding closing the road for traffic for the repair work and instead are engaging the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) on how to go about the repair work to avoid causing traffic problem.
Hon. Adeshina stated that he had embarked on the developmental projects in fulfillment of his campaign promise to the people in 2017.
He explained that most of the major roads within the council were in a very bad condition when he was vying for the Chairmanship position and as a result, he promised to give them facelift after winning the election to give the people a new lease of life.
On the deluge of commendations, praises and awards that have been coming his way in recognition of his administration’s giant developmental strides, the council boss said that they are proof that what he’s doing is acceptable to the people and promised to use them as inspiration and springboard to embark on further developmental projects for the benefit of the residents of the council.
