Tinubu Hails Ambode, Fashola as Mile 12-Ikorodu BRT Operation Flags-off

Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Thursday reassured that he
would effectively address the issue of traffic congestion and improve
road networks in the state.
Ambode spoke at the commissioning and launch of the Mile 12-Ikorodu Road widening and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) operation.
He said the projects showed the government’s commitment to the infrastructural renewal and development of the state.
“The commissioning is a milestone in public transportation system in the state.
“It is a delivery of world class transport infrastructure that will
bring comfort and convenience to commuters, particularly Ikorodu
residents,” Ambode said.
He said that the BRT system was initiated as part of strategies to
modernise the public transport, like other major city states in the
around.
“It is intended to provide efficient service that will encourage
patronage by the middle-class thereby reducing the number of private
vehicles on our roads.
“Today, the BRT system has to a large extent lived up to that expectation,” Ambode said.
He commended the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA)
and other stakeholders for a job well done in the development of the
project.
Also speaking, a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC),
Chief Bola Tinubu commended Ambode and his predecessor, Mr Babatunde
Fashola for being creative, intelligent and making Lagos a model city.
Tinubu expressed optimism that Nigeria would succeed beyond people’s imaginations.
“We are in the front row now and we will ensure that Nigeria is turned around and succeeds beyond your imagination,” he said.
He urged Lagos residents to embrace, peace, discipline, accountability and continuity.
Present at the event was Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun among others.
