Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos, says the state government created jobs for about 380 people through the Agege Pen-Cinema flyover project.

He was speaking on Friday at the inauguration of the Agege Pen-Cinema dual carriage flyover and five arterial road networks in the area.

The overpass ascends from Oba Ogunji Road and drops at Oke Koto axis of Agege; it also opens to the old Lagos-Abeokuta expressway through Abule Egba.

“A key outcome from the strategic execution of this magnificent Pen-Cinema flyover project is that our administration has again demonstrated the priority it accords to the wellbeing of our people,” he said.

“It is a true test of our commitment to the Greater Lagos vision and a reflection of the achievability of our audacious socio-economic goals. 

“In the course of implementing this project, we created jobs for about 380 people including engineers, supervisors, artisans and others- a clear indicator of the nexus between infrastructure development and employment generation.”

The governor described the delivery of the project as a “landmark progress” in the state government’s drive towards eliminating bottlenecks causing suffocating gridlocks and relieving residents of stress associated with commuting on roads .

He noted that the Akinwumi Ambode administration had completed 20 percent of the project, adding that his government decided to continue the project because it was in tune with the first pillar of its T.H.E.M.E.S agenda which targets the provision of roads for expedited economic growth and seamless mobility.

In his remarks, Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), described Sanwo-Olu as “a brilliant captain”, commending the collaboration between the executive and the legislative arms in the state.

He said Sanwo-Olu had stabilised and brought Lagos back on a focused journey, despite economic turbulence occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic and coordinated destruction of the state’s assets during the #EndSARS protest.
