Residents have been urged to partner with government for Lagos to attain its mega city status.
Deputy Executive Secretary of Yaba Local Council Development Area, Razaki Okesiji made this plea at a road inspection at Alara street and changing of Connal Road to Bola Akindele Road in Yaba.
Okesiji said: “We are here to effect positive change and the essence of good governance is to provide dividends of democracy for the benefit of the masses so as to improve the standard of living.
‘’ Yaba LCDA have taken a giant step of fixing some roads in Alara and is very important to the community . It is the duty of the community to make sure that the road is in good shape. It would serve as a middle link to Owodilo , Sabo and others when completed,’’ he said.
The council chief said efforts were being made to decongest major link roads.
The construction of the road began three weeks ago. The job is being done in phases. The first phase has been completed.
The chairman of Ward C, Mr. Adams Gbolahan thanked the council for its gesture.
A representative of Bola Akindele Road, Ronke AbdulRashid- Abubakar, urged the council chief to keep up the good work.
