NGO decries deplorable state of roads in Epe
Mr. Sanuth Ibrahim


A non-governgmental organisation, Club Seventies Epe, on Saturday decried the deplorable state of the major roads leading to Epe division of Lagos State.

Mr Sanuth Ibrahim, President of the Club, stated this in an open letter to Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on the deplorable condition of roads in the division.

He said the roads were; Lekki-Epe Expressway, Ketu-Itoikin and Epe-Ijebu-Ode.

Ibrahim appealed to the state government to ensure immediate rehabilitation of the roads.

He said this would save lives, reduce the untold hardship of the people in the community and create the enabling environment to enhance commercial activities.

“Being a critical component in encouraging a country’s economic growth, road infrastructural development also enhances the efficiency of production, helps provide economic incentives to public and private sector participants.

“It is in the light of the above that we are constrained as a registered non-governmental organisation to write to you about the deplorable state of the three roads leading to Epe; the biggest among the five IBILE divisions of Lagos State,” he said.

He said innocent lives would have been saved if these roads were motorable.

“We don’t want to bore you with numerous man hour lost on these roads by motorists that are able to navigate their way through the obstacles.

“Recently, the contractor from the Ogun State Government had commenced work on the Ijebu Ode/Epe axis from the Lagos and Ogun State boundary leaving the rest for Lagos State Government to complete its own part of the road,” he said.
