Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has vowed to step on many toes all in his bid to make Lagos better. This he said at the weekend while addressing Journalists after undertaking tour of Lekki regional roads and alignments in Lekki area of the state where he blamed the excessive flooding that submerged so many houses, destroying property worth billions of Naira on the illegally built structures distorting the state’s built environment.
He said his administration will not shy away from taking decisions in order to set the state on a path of sustainable development.
The governor who decried the alarming rate at which certain individuals distorted the state’s master plan, said his administration will pull down any structure illegally built.
Sanwo-Olu said he will demolish all the massive structures illegally built on road alignments in Lekki causing flooding in that axis of the state.
He described the haphazard development on the Lekki corridor as shameful, saying no responsible government would fold it’s hands and allow it’s built environment to be distorted with illegal structures, mini developments.
He said,” This alignment is called Lekki Regional Road. It is meant to be a relief access road to the Lekki -Epe Expressway”. Obviously not pleased with the haphazard development in Brownstone Estate.
“Where we are now is our major place of concern. This is where people have completely bastardized the right of way. Where people have built structures around this place first without approval. More importantly on our right of way on the relieve Regional way that would ease traffic that would ensure that people can commute from one part of the Lekki regional part to the other parts.
