Lagos State House of Assembly Visits Proposed Site for Ijegun Road Project

The Committee on Works, Housing and Infrastructure Development of the Lagos State House of Assembly, has visited the proposed site for the 19.39km road project to link up Ije-Ododo, Ijegun and Abule-Ado in Iba Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State, yesterday 7th October 2020.

It would be recalled, that the community has been troubled, following the marking of over 300 buildings said to be on the Projects Right of Way (RoW), which the residents described as deviation from the master plan approved by the state government.

Similarly, the Community received the State Delegation from the Ministry of Physical Planning on Tuesday 8th September 2020, in a bid to voice out their complains to the State Government.

Guardian reported that when the Lagos State House committee visited the community yesterday, the residents, led by their counsel, Mike Babalola, took them round the disputed site through Ijegun-Ikotun roundabout and down to Ijedodo, towards Abule Ado.

The Committee Chairman on Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Nureni Akinsanya, said, “We have seen everywhere. We will go back and report to the House based on our findings. We will then send our findings to the government.”

In the same vein, another lawmaker on the team, Desmond Elliot, advised property owners to forward their C of Os and approved building plans through their lawyer.
