Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Speaker of the state Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, and his counterpart in the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, have stressed the need to rebuild Lagos in the aftermath of the destruction resulting from #EndSAR protest.
The trio, alongside other political figures in the state, made the call on Friday after a three-day event with the theme,”A Concensus Agenda for Rebuilding Lagos,” organised by the Office of Civic Engagement.
In his opening remark, the state governor, Sanwo-Olu, disclosed that the foundation for the proposed Fourth Mainland Bridge would commence before the end of the year.
He stated, ‘’We did not politically promise Fourth Mainland Bridge but we are going to do it. With your prayers and by the grace of Almighty God, we shall lay the foundation for the building and construction of that Fourth Mainland Bridge before the end of this year.
‘’We are on course and I am sure that the 37km ring road is on track, which will change the face of transportation and movement in Lagos.’’
The governor also said his administration was on course to complete the two rail projects that started several years back and promised that they would be completed before the end of his administration.
Other politicians and personalities that attended the event included Senator Adeola Solomon (Yayi), a House of Representatives member, James Faleke, members of Governor Advisory Council, members of state House of Assembly, traditional rulers and chieftains of the All Progressives Congress.
