Senator Tokunbo Abiru Ignites Cheers as Long-Awaited Reconstruction of Ikorodu-Itokin Road Commences reports that a wave of jubilation swept through road users, especially residents of Epe Division, when news broke a week ago about the long-overdue reconstruction of the Ikorodu-Itokin road. Seen as a crucial alternative route to Lagos, particularly to evade the notorious traffic along the Epe-Ajah expressway, the announcement brought ecstatic relief to those who navigate this important thoroughfare.

Initiated by Senator Tokunbo Abiru, the Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District, the reconstruction project addresses a longstanding plea from residents, promising a smoother journey for trade, a boom in real estate development, and enhanced accessibility for commuters in key local governments such as Epe and Ikorodu.

The Federal Ministry of Works awarded the contract to Geld Construction Limited, with immediate commencement, marking the end of years of discomfort for travellers grappling with the road’s dilapidation, especially during the rainy season.

The ongoing rehabilitation during the week, personally overseen by Senator Tokunbo Abiru’s team and led by the diligent Special Adviser on Constituency Matters, Dr. Saheed Ibikunle, promises not only improved infrastructure but a catalyst for economic investment and ease of transport.

In a proactive move earlier in the week, the vibrant Chairman of Ikosi-Ejinrin LCDA, who had visited the leadership of the construction company, expressed his commitment to maximizing the rehabilitation’s benefits by advocating for an extension of the road network beyond the Ito-Ikin junction to the Lagos-Ogun State boundary. This strategic vision aligns with the broader impact the project is expected to have on the entire region.

As the construction progresses, Lagos East celebrates the visionary efforts of Senator Tokunbo Abiru, echoing gratitude for the positive transformation underway. The road to a better Lagos East is gaining momentum, and the community eagerly anticipates the dawn of a new era in transportation and development.
