The governor said , “What is required would be like , at least a ten – lane road pattern , at the minimum . That should be considered by the Federal Government .
“I want to call on you to help us declare an emergency on the state of our federal roads . It is as if , they are non -existent .
“We looked at these roads and we said it is important for people to be able to move between the states and the sub -region that share borders with us .”
Abiodun informed the committee of efforts being put in place by his administration and its Lagos State counterpart at ensuring that the two roads ( Sagamu – Ogijo – Ikorodu and Lagos -Ota – Abeokuta ) receive immediate attention .
In his response , the Chairman , Senate Committee for Works , Senator Adamu Aliero , said they were in the state to inspect all federal projects, especially road projects .
