Residents of Oshodi-Isolo and environs now have a cause to smile. The local government chairman, Bolaji Ariyoh has embarked on an initiative called ‘Operation Fix Oshodi’, which aims to give a comprehensive facelift to the local government area.
The operation, which was launched recently by the chairman, is aimed at giving a complete make over to Oshodi-Isolo Local Government Area in terms of road repairs and construction, clearing of drainages and removal of refuse.
According to Ariyoh, the council had begun repair works of roads in a number of places, including Boladale junction, Oshodi Road, Dosunmu/ Baderin junctions. Again, the council has embarked on soil cement stabilization and laying of crushed stones on some streets such as Seinde Callisto around Charity bus stop in Oshodi. The council chairman said further that the Works Department of the council had also moved to other areas, including Alhaji Rafiu Street (Hare Krishna).
In the area of environment, Ariyoh said the job would last for a while, as it was a continuous process.
“Presently, we have started the removal of refuse from resident areas, black spots and drains. The exercise is expected to cut across all wards and it includes de-silting of drains to ensure free flow of waste and rainwater,: he said. He added that removal of refuse “would be a daily exercise until we have a clean environment.”
