- Residents in Badagry have called on the government to come to their aid
- According to the residents, their road is in terrible state
- It was reported that contractors have fixed the road but it remains unusable during the rainy season
Residents of Ilogbo-Eremi in Lagos state have called on the federal government for help in fixing the Oko Afo road which they claimed has been awarded to three contractors.
According to a report sent to NAIJ.com by a resident, he claimed the contractors have failed to find a lasting solution to the problem and the way becomes unusable during the rainy season.
Read the report below:
The pictures below is Ilogbo-Eremi , Oko Afo road Badagry axis, Lagos. The people of this town are really suffering concerning the situation of the mysterious road contracts that have been awarded several times to contractor but all they do is constructing a temporary road which doesn’t last up to three months.
The contractors were awarded to 2-3 different contractors.
The first contractor executed the project by starting the project from an irrelevant section of the road before disappearing.
Another contractor came, flamboyantly displaying heavy duty vehicles meant for the construction site while residence watched with happiness, but to our dismay they continued the project, doing shady jobs and later abandoned a large section of the road.
Now the question is that who awarded the contract? No one knows.
The traditional rulers of the community have tried their best to make this road a good one in the sense that they collect money from trailer and tippers. This money is what they use to get sands and grading machine to make the road passable but after some months the road will get spoil again.
The newly elected local government chairman which is Olrunda local council development is also from this community. He came to inspect the road and he promise to do something which he did by filling the road with stones and sand which everybody was excited about but when we get to raining season everything got spoilt and worst to the extent that no car or motorcycle can pass the road again.
