Commuters commend Sanwo-Olu for fixing OkeAfa-Ejigbo Road


By Olushola Okewole
The motorists plying Ejigbo-Isolo-Mushin Road have commended the Lagos State Government for easing their pressure by fixing the road to enhance free vehicular movement.

Last week, the Lagos State Public Workers Corporation (LSPWC) filled up the potholes at Oke-Afa Bridge, which had hitherto been a major cause of traffic gridlock on the axis.
Some of the road users who spoke with ECHONEWS confirmed that since it has been fixed, there has been free flow of traffic.

One of the motorists, Mr. Ugo Aslem, said: “I’m very happy the road has been fixed because it has been in that condition for a long time now. Whenever I wanted to pass the road, I would think twice because passing through the road was always a difficult one.
“I think our new governor is moving in the right direction because when you fix a road, you solve a lot of problems.”

Also speaking, Mrs. Abosede Owolabi, a commuter, who has her business in Isolo, said: “Everyday, spending longer time on that road has been very challenging and sometimes I had to leave home very early so as to meet up with early morning sales.

“Since the road has been fixed, it has been free and the vehicles now move freely without stoppage. It is really a good thing that the road could be free like this. I want to commend the government for that, and they should do more in making our roads smooth and making life easy for the people.”
