The residents of Oreta/Offin in Igbogbo/Baiyeku LCDA are lamenting and crying out to Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on the deplorable conditions of Oreta and Offin roads which had made life unbearable for the residents while their roads have suddenly become death traps. This was established when Igbogbo Info Magazine visited the communities recently.
A cross section of distraught residents and community leaders lamented their plights while drawing the attention of the Publisher, Igbogbo/Baiyeku Info Magazine, Mr Shakiru Seidu, to the parlous state of the roads.
The anguished residents pleaded with the Lagos State authority to fix the dilapidated roads in order to make life meaningful to them. "life has become nightmare to the residents of Offin and Oreta as a result of the bad road", Baale Offin-Ile, Chief Alimi explained.
He said "it is almost a hopeless situation because driving on this Offin road has been hellish for residents, especially those who work in the city. Whenever it rains, motorists would park their cars and trek home. People would trek for about 2 hours to Igbogbo. Vehicles were usually damaged and it has practically become impossible to access the neighboring communities".
It was gathered that the dilapidated condition of the roads has equally affected security of lives and property in the communities. In most cases when there is emergency security situation, Police cannot access the scene because their vehicles will either get trapped or damaged by craters and pot holes that litter the roads.
The Chairman, Offin/Oreta Joint CDA, Otunba Hameed, applauded the good work of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode on his commitment on roads in Lagos State and implored him to extend his caring habit to Offin/Oreta roads.
