About 250 roads and 23 power projects have been approved by the Lagos State Government for construction across the State.
This, the State Government said, was in fulfillment of the promises the Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led administration made upon assumption of office.
This is just as the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Friday, said the government had given grants to the 20 Local Government Areas in the state to “immediately embark on, at least, three projects each in their respective areas.”
The Lagos State Governor, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, and titled, “Sanwo-Olu flags off construction of 377 roads, power projects across wards,” carried out the event on Friday at the Alausa government house with members of the state cabinet, the All Progressives Congress Local Council chairmen and councillors in attendance.
He said, “The state-wide ward projects being inaugurated today are state intervention projects in grassroots development. These projects are not universal; they are diverse, reflecting the needs of each ward across the state.
“The implementation of the projects will commence immediately after this official flag-off, as contractors have been fully mobilised to move to site. I urge residents who are the ultimate beneficiaries of these projects to take ownership by monitoring the implementation process and ensure that the job conforms to quality and standard specified in the project design.”
