A civil society organization, Centre for Dignity and Probity (CDP) has empathised with Lagos people over the poor condition of roads across the state inherited from the immediate past administration by the Babajide Sanwo-Olu led government.
The civil society organization is particularly pained by the anguish and agony that the people have been subjected to through endless traffic gridlock which has resulted in loss of man hours, stress, damage to vehicles, wear and tear of the human body as well as the security risk that the people have been subjected to of late.
In a statement from the organising Secretary of the group, Comrade Bunmi Adeniji, the group however, expressed consciousness of the fact that, “we are still in the rainy season of which road construction and rehabilitation is being hampered by the weather condition”.
It therefore admonished the government and people of Lagos to exercise patience and allow the rainy season to terminate before doing the needful with regards to the roads so that tax payers money is not frittered away for temporary relief which is not sustain unable.
The group expressed delight over the declaration of a state of emergency on Lagos roads by the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration and called on all the contractors being mobilized, to ensure that the roads receive quality, public safety and convenience attention when construction and rehabilitation works begin.
The organization promised to interface as a monitoring eagle eye for the people on the road construction when it begins, while appreciating Lagosians for their patience, understanding and perseverance over the present state of the roads which it believes will soon be a thing of the past.
