Friday, March 5, 2021, will remain a memorable day to the entire people of Lagos State, especially residents of Agege and its environs.
It was a day the long-sought relief from choking vehicular gridlocks around Agege-Abule Egba axis came to an end following the commissioning of the Pen Cinema Bridge and five arterial road networks by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The completion and inauguration of Pen Cinema Bridge is in fulfillment of Governor Sanwo-Olu’s campaign promise to Lagosians in line with the six-pillars of development; Traffic Management and Transportation; Health and Environment; Education and Technology; Making Lagos a 21st Century state; Entertainment and Tourism; Security and Governance.
Governor Sanwo-Olu has demonstrated leadership and commitment to good governance and delivery of dividends of democracy thereby putting smiles on the faces of millions of Lagosians since he assumed office on May 29, 2019. One of the critical areas the Sanwo-Olu administration has met the yearnings and aspirations of Lagosians is Traffic Management and Transportation with rehabilitation and construction of roads. This feat has vehicular mobility and increased economic growth.
Many strategic roads within Lagos have already been fixed while some areas in the State such as the GRA, Ikeja, Ikorodu, Ijedodo, Badagry have become project sites due to various ongoing road constructions in different locations.
