Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola, has ordered the demolition of Ladipo Police Station in Mushin Local Government Area for obstructing drainage channels and slowing down road constructions. The station will be rebuilt in another location.
Fashola gave this order while inspecting the ongoing construction works in Badejo Kalesanwo Street and other road projects in Mushin area. The governor, whose aim is to ensure that the 16 roads awarded in the area are constructed and delivered on time with standard specifications, said the demolition and relocation of the station is necessary to speed up work. Besides, the building is sitting on the drainage.
“The presence of the police station is hindering the timely completion of construction works on some of the roads,” he said.
Fashola, was accompanied by the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure – Dr Obafemi Hamzat and his Education counterpart – Mrs. Olayinka Oladunjoye,
