Ladi Lawanson, the Lagos State Commissioner for Transport, says it is not the plan of the state government to delay ongoing road construction projects in the Abule-Egba-Oshodi axis for political motives.
Lawanson told journalists in Lagos on Wednesday that Lagos Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has been putting pressure on the contractors handling the projects for quick delivery.
“It is not in the government’s interest to prolong the life span of any project, because the government is passionate about delivering it on time.
“Most of the projects that are ongoing have December 2018 expected completion date, so, it is amusing that people are saying it is being delayed for political motivation.
“I have accompanied the governor on the inspection of the ongoing projects, most times on Sundays, and I can tell you the governor is putting lots of pressure on them (contractors) for quick delivery,” Lawanson said.
