Osinbajo's approval to rebuild Airport Road a 50th birthday gift to Lagos - Ambode
Osinbajo's approval to rebuild Airport Road a 50th birthday gift to Lagos - Ambode

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo has granted permission to the Lagos State Government to embark on a reconstruction of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road from Oshodi.

Secretary to the State Government, Tunji Bello, said Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has commended the Acting President for his statesman-like approach to issues and for fast tracking the approval.

“We are very appreciative of the good gesture of His Excellency, the Acting President for acceding to our request which is not only very timely but a very heartwarming one. Posterity will never forget this genuine developmental action”, Governor Ambode said.

He also described the approval as a 50th birthday gift to the people of Lagos State, describing it a further demonstration of the determination of the present administration to ensure the effectiveness of the Executive Order on improving the Ease of Doing Business recently signed by the Acting President.

Governor Ambode also gave kudos to President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the enabling environment to attract Foreign Direct Investment into the nation, adding that with the upgrading of the International Airport Road which is the gateway to the nation’s commercial nerve centre, the country will attract new investments.

The Governor had in early March this year, raised an alarm about the present state of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road, describing it as a national disgrace that required immediate attention to salvage the nation’s image.

He stated then that Lagos presently has a design for the reconstruction of the road as well as the funds to embark on the project but was yet to get the go ahead from the federal government.

“The road linking Oshodi to the International Airport, you would all agree with me is a national embarrassment. In the spirit of the regeneration and urbanisation that this administration has set out to achieve, we believe strongly that the image that is exhumed by the decadence of that road must be repaired and we took it upon ourselves to appropriate the 2017 budget that the House of Assembly should approve the total reconstruction of the Airport Road from Oshodi to the International Airport.
