Like Ambode before handover, Sanwo-Olu orders filling of potholes

Though Eid Sallah celebrations have come and gone, very important to recall was the order handed down to the Lagos State Public Works for immediate fixing of potholes and roads that need urgent repairs.
Whereas very close to the end of Ambode administration, similar order was issued but checks showed that nothing was seen as far as implementation was concerned till he left office on May 29, 2019.
However, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Wednesday at the Eid celebration with Muslim faithful, restated his commitment to collaborate with residents and people of the state for successful implementation of his administration’s policies and programmes including road repairs from time to time.
The governor, who said this when he hosted Muslim faithful in Lagos House, Alausa, Ikeja to mark 2019 Eid-el-Fitri informed the gathering that his government will soon release emergency hotlines to the public to call the Lagos State Public Works for immediate fixing of potholes and roads that need urgent repairs.
“Let us have continuous collaborative engagements. We will continue to ask you to work with us. We would be calling on you at different times.”
“Our Public Works Corporation would come out and start fixing all the potholes on our roads. We would soon publish the numbers that people would be calling to notify us of wherever there are potholes in the state”, Governor Sanwo-Olu stated.
However, checks as at Thursday showed that the said hot lines are yet to be released even as many roads in the state continue to beg for facelift.
