To ensure timely completion of work at the Gatankowa ICT Village relocation site, Bridgeway Global Project Ltd seeks the support of Lagos State Government to evacuate illegal occupants from the site.
Bridgeway Global Project Ltd is the developer handling the relocation of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) Village from its present location in Ikeja to Gatankowa area in Agbado-Okiodo LCDA.
Mr Jimmy Onyemenam, Chief Executive Officer of Bridgeway Global Project Ltd, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday.
According to Onyemenam, the miscreants have also constituted a security threat to workers who have been attacked several times, thereby hindering ongoing relocation project at Gatankowa area.
“We have written several letters to the Commissioner of Physical Planning and Urban Development on the issue of the over 3,000 illegal immigrants occupying the cleared site for the project.
“But when the demolition was done and they had nowhere to go, they returned to the same place that is under construction now with more aggression.
“They threaten the lives of the workers on site and people living in the environment. They destroy their work.
Onyemenam acknowledged that the office of the governor had been supportive , adding that more help was needed from the supervising ministry and security agencies to ensure timely completion of the project.
He said that so much money had been spent on security issues but regretted that not much had been achieved.
He said it was imperative to complete work on the project as it was a development project. (NAN)
