Residents Lament Infrastructure Decay

Residents of the Akoka area of Lagos State are lamenting the poor state of their roads, poor drainage channels and increasing insecurity in the community.

This, they did at a stakeholders’ forum organised by the Akoka Community Development Association.
The ACDA Chairman, Mr. Segun Adesanya, explained that there was a need for both the state and the local governments to come to the aid of the community.
Adesanya said the association had compiled projects that would enhance the standard of living in the community.
He added that about N28m would be needed for the construction of new drainages, boreholes, rehabilitation of some roads, provision of street lights, refuse bins and the purchase of transformers.
The ACDA chairman said, “Our community is in need of a proper drainage system. During the rainy season, the whole community is usually flooded. Rejuvenating this community is a major project that requires the attention of both state and local governments.
“Owing to the poor drainage system and lack of adequate maintenance culture,  our roads are in a deplorable state. We will appreciate if there is a continuous construction and maintenance programme in place for our community. Most of our projects really require the intervention of government.”
