The last point of call for the governor was the network of  roads constructed at Apelehin, the ward F area of Bariga , the five newly constructed roads are Adetoke street, Omobokun street, Ewenla street , Community street and Emmanuel Church  street. Before the advent of this administration the area was been referred to as mosquito village , this was due to the level of decadence  associated with the area, but now referred to as Transformation city after his intervention.

Speaking at the Ewenla end of  the road, Hon Alabi said he decided to bring succor to the people of the area after his ward tour on assumption  of office.

The council chief eulogizing the governor said the 21 roads in which 18 has been delivered  so far by the administration,  was to complement the 11 roads under construction and  nearing completion by the administration of Mr Sanwo-Olu.

The council boss said Governor Sanwo-Olu facilitated the completion of the inaugurated roads, noting that the Governor, after listening to the council’s complaint, immediately mobilised contractors handling the projects back on the sites.

 “Bariga LCDA has been benefiting from the magnanimity of Governor Sanwo-Olu. I recall his efforts towards the completion of some roads that has been abandoned in Bariga by the State,  I made a complaint to him about the neglect of the roads and he immediately approved that the contractors should return to sites to ensure the projects are completed, and they are nearing 80 percent now

Alabi said the usefulness of the projects to the people demonstrated the capacity of the council to transform development programmes in the grassroots..

The Governor while addressing the mammoth crowds present at Ewenla, said Alabi has demonstrated a good leadership qualities , as this was the first local government he will visit and made full tour  and he was indeed happy with what he saw.

“Hon. Kolade intervened in education sector with the building of three modern classroom blocks in Gbagada Girls Junior Secondary School, build 24 toilets, hall  and donated buses to carry the pupils free of charge. He also intervened in infrastructure, given all the roads he has built for the people of Bariga. This is a real transformation of a local government and I will use this good example in Bariga council as a point of contact to other local council chairmen.” says the governor .

As a reward for the quality of projects delivered, and it will also serve as his valentine gift to the people of Bariga ,  Sanwo-Olu promised to appoint a Special Adviser from Bariga Local Council  to support the State Government’s effort in driving more development at the grassroots. He charged other council chairmen to emulate the example set by the Bariga council boss, saying their social programmes and capital projects must address the welfare of their residents

”As a Government, the quality of projects we have inaugurated today demonstrate our commitment to lifting people at the grassroots and show them that our labour is to improve their well being. We will be starting massive rehabilitation of St. Finbar’s Road,  we will be rehabilitating Jagunmolu Street, Diya Street and Sholuyi Street”

He concluded by telling the chairman that the reward of hard work is more work .

The event was made colorful by the Sanwoolu babes and the Bariga singers who entertained the governor with good musics and lyrics.
