Members of Ogun State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, called on the State and Federal Governments to urgently intervene in fixing some of the deplorable roads in the state.
The lawmakers, during their contributions under personal explanations at the plenary in Abeokuta, decried the deteriorating condition of roads across the state.
The roads deliberated on by the lawmakers included Lagos-Abeokuta, Sango-Idiroko, Sango-Ijoko-Agbado-Akute, Lusada-Ado-Ikoga, Atan-Ado, Ode-Omi-Lagos and Sagamu-Ogijo roads, amongst others.
The lawmakers called for urgent intervention of the state government through the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, State Public Works Agency (OGPWA) and the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) to put palliative measures where necessary.
The lawmakers said that such palliative measures would ease the suffering of road users, whose socio-economic activities were being adversely affected by the poor condition of the roads.
In his response, Speaker of the Assembly, Mr Olakunle Oluomo, commended the efforts of the state government in reaching out to the Federal Government to ease the plight of road users along Lagos-Abeokuta roads.
Oluomo directed the House Committee on Works and Infrastructure to engage the State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure and the General Manager, State Public Works Agency, to further bring the attention of the government to some of the bad roads in the state.
The speaker gave an assurance that the state assembly would continue to ensure that dividends of democracy covered the nooks and crannies of the state.
