Lagos-Badagry road is in bad shape - Reps member urges FG for immediate repair

A Lagos lawmaker, Ibrahim Layode, on Saturday, March 31, appealed to the federal government to give urgent attention to the Lagos-Badagry Expressway to ease the hardship of commuters and motorists on the road.

Layode, representing Badagry constituency I at the Lagos state House of Assembly, made the appeal during a walk exercise tagged Oil "88" Walk For Fitness which he organised for residents.

He spoke with the residents at his constituency office shortly after the walk. The lawmaker, who also is the chairman, House Committee on Housing, urged government to repair the failed portions on the road to alleviate the sufferings of the people, saying "the road is in bad shape.

Layode remarked: "We plead with the federal government to remember the helpless people of Badagry. This road is an international road, but has been abandoned. I think the federal government needs to declare a state of emergency on this road because it is in a state of disrepair."

He said that the residents had been asking so many questions from him about the condition of the road and urged government to come to the rescue the people.

The lawmaker, who commended Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his people-oriented policies and development strides, urged the people to be patient with the government on the controversial new Land Use Charge Law, 2018.

Layode assured residents of the state, especially in Badagry, that the Assembly was committed to reviewing the law to meet the aspirations and yearnings of the people.

He said: "The Assembly is working tirelessly to ensure a review of the law as the people have complained that the increment was not affordable to them. Whatever the state government realises from Land Use Charge will be used for development purposes; Gov. Ambode-led government is committed to the development of the state."
