Will they go back to stealing or is their a better plan??
Kudos to Governor Ambode of Lagos state. He's arguably the best Governor in Nigeria so far because he has shown a great deal of leadership qualities in project execution. This tells me that he's a man with vision for tomorrow.
Having said that, the state Government has contracted Planet projects Ltd to execute massive transportation network that can carter for atleast 1 million people in a day through public transport.
As reported by Premiumtimes on september 4th 2017:
The Lagos State Government on Monday flagged off the reconstruction of a 10-lane Oshodi-International Airport Road, with a pledge to complete the project within the next 15 months.
The state Commissioner for Waterfront Infrastructure Development, Adebowale Akinsanya, said at the ceremony that the project was in line with the state government’s commitment to transform the entire axis.
Mr. Akinsanya said that the state government took it upon itself to undertake the reconstruction of the road, being one of the busiest roads in the state with vehicular volumes average of 50,000 vehicles daily.
According to him, the poor state of the road is not acceptable for the status of the state as the fifth largest economy in Africa and the nation’s commercial hub.
Mr. Akinsanya said some of the fences along the corridor had been identified to be within the right of way, adding that government would minimise the impact of the project on property owners.
This begs to ask very important question: What is the fate of the current danfo drivers????
The Governor needs to address the issue in order to prevent criminal activities befalling the state because, once you take away the livelihood of a former agbero man, you need no prophet to tell you that he might return to old ways.
I believe the governor must have factored a solution concerning this in his plan..
