Dangote Trucks Responsible For Bad Roads In Lagos- Assembly ….Urges Sanwo-Olu To Warn Contractors

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday at plenary indicted trucks belonging to Dangote Group of Company over the continuous damage of roads in the state.

In a motion moved by Hon. Abiodun Tobun, the House resolved to call on Dangote Group of Company to perform its social responsibility role by supporting the state government in the construction and repairing of roads in the state.

It was observed that most of the roads in the state were being damaged by trucks belonging to Dangote Group Of Company.

The House also called on Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to direct the State Treasury Office (STO) to ensure that contractors are not paid contractual money without meeting the necessary conditions.

More so, the state government was urged to ensure that the necessary right of way is given to the contractors before the commencement of construction works.

It was added in the resolution that the Special Adviser on Works and Infrastructure should ensure quality supervision of the road projects.

Tobun, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Works and Infrastructure stated that there was need to ensure good quality of roads in the state.

Tobun, representing Epe Constituency 1, said that inspite of the quantum of the tax payers money being spent on road construction in the state, most of the roads in the state were in bad condition either because they were done in a shoddy manner or not done at all, adding that the money released for the projects were not properly spent.

“The House is further concerned that after most of the roads are repaired, heavy duty vehicles ply the road without regard for the damage done to the roads.

“We should urge Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to ensure that contractors are not paid mobilisation fee unless they are ready for the work.

“The Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure should also ensure that only contractors with requisite experience are given the job to do,” he said.

The lawmaker added that the rate at which people were being killed on the roads in the state was alarming, while revealing that some people on the entourage of the Oba of Epe were killed by an articulated vehicle on Epe road on Sunday.

The Speake, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa observed that there were three major items in the motion.

Obasa stated that the motion made it clear that the government agency in-charge of road construction should be alive to their responsibility, the contractors should do their jobs, while corporate organisations should also play their Corporate Social Responsibility roles.

In his contribution, Hon. Bisi Yusuff, representing Alimosho Constituency 1 said that there must be quality and value for money on the roads being constructed in the state.

He gave example of Kudirat Abiola Road in Oregun, Ikeja, which he said was commissioned 14 years ago and, which he said is still in good condition.

In his view, Hon. Rotimi Olowo, representing Shomolu Constituency 1 stated that many of the contractors that do not love the state bolt away after collecting mobilization fee.

Olowo stressed that Lagos State is losing a lot of money because of insurance bond, and that at every stage of the project, the APG must be alive, which he said should not only be for mobilisation fee, but other subsequent payment in the life of the project.

Hon. Olayiwola Sobur Olawale from Mushin Constituency 2 urged the House to pay attention to the issue of block drains.

“Some of the potholes on our highways are due to the carelessness of our people.

“Incessant dropping of wastes on our roads block the drains. The contractors should be made to sign agreements that they would be brought to book over any road they construct that fails.

“The neighbourhood watch should call our attention to any vehicle that spoils the road so that we can sanction the owners,” he said.

    Thanks for your post. I have constantly observed that a majority of people are wanting to lose weight because they wish to appear slim along with attractive. Nonetheless, they do not continually realize that there are many benefits for losing weight also. Doctors assert that obese people experience a variety of disorders that can be directly attributed to their excess weight. Thankfully that people that are overweight along with suffering from diverse diseases can help to eliminate the severity of their particular illnesses through losing weight. It’s possible to see a slow but noticeable improvement in health while even a negligible amount of fat reduction is obtained.

    Thanks for your article. I would also love to say that your health insurance dealer also utilizes the benefit of the coordinators of the group insurance plan. The health agent is given a long list of benefits wanted by a person or a group coordinator. What a broker really does is seek out individuals or perhaps coordinators which often best fit those requirements. Then he presents his tips and if all sides agree, the actual broker formulates a legal contract between the 2 parties.
