Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has assured residents of the state that the ongoing reconstruction of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, road and the Oshodi interchange will be completed by December 2018.
Ambode gave the assurance at the on-the-spot assessments he carried out on some of the ongoing projects being executed by his administration.
According to the governor, the need for quick completion of the road had become imperative in view of its strategic location as an entry point into Lagos city in particular, and Nigeria in general.
“We just saw the progress of work being done on the Airport Road and I will like to appeal to all Lagos residents that they should bear with us.
As much as possible, we will try to reduce the stress this might generate by completing it and the Oshodi interchange by December end. These we hope to present to Lagos residents as Christmas gifts,” Ambode said.
