 Mr Rasaq Ajala, Chairman, Odiolowo-Ojuwoye Local Council Development Area (LCDA), in State, has warned residents in area against trading on walkways.

Ajala said this during inspection of road construction within community on Tuesday.

The chairman decried the occupation of part of the roads by automobile mechanics and some traders for economic activities.

Ajala urged the representatives of the Community Development Associations to liaise with the people and work out modalities to ensure they shunned commercial activities on the walkways to prevent damage to the roads.

He said reconstruction of the roads was aimed at easing vehicular movement within the area.

Ajala also said the reconstruction of the health centre in the community would assist the government in providing more healthcare services to the residents.

“The reconstruction of the health centre will cater to more people while the construction of these roads is aimed at easing vehicular movements on the major roads within this LCDA.

“The road projects will increase and have significant impacts on the economic activities in these areas,” he said.

The chairman said the projects would also add value to the properties in the community.

The council boss said road construction at Ajisegiri St. in the Ilupeju area of the community had reached 85 per cent completion.
