‘Lekki-Epe road reconstruction will have effect on Lagos economy’
The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the senatorial by-election in Lagos East, Mr. Tokunbo Abiru, has hailed the Lagos State Government for launching the reconstruction of Eti-Osa-Lekki-Epe expressway project.
He said the reconstruction would have a greater multiplier effect on the Lagos economy.
Abiru told reporters after the launch that the reconstruction of the expressway “is a monumental achievement for Lagos State and particularly for Lagos East Senatorial District.
The APC senatorial candidate, an economist and chartered accountant, who spent 32 years in the private sector, noted that the road reconstruction “will harness the opportunities that we see around here, especially within the Ibeju-Lekki Belt.”
He said: “As we all know, this is where we have the Deep Sea Port. We also have Dangote Refinery and many other companies. For these companies around this belt, a road of this magnitude will enable us harness the opportunities we see.”
