The Governor was commended alongside the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa by the LG boss at the Constituency Stakeholders' Meeting organised by the Lagos State House of Assembly in Agege.
The stakeholders' meeting also had in attendance the member representing Agege State Constituency 2 in the state House of Assembly, Hon. Oluyinka Ogundimu and the Chairman of Orile Agege Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Hon. Johnson Sunday Babatunde.
Speaking at the event, Egunjobi said the people of Agege are delighted with the construction of the bridge which he noted, will not only ease traffic gridlock in the area but will also improve economic activities in the area.
"We must commend Governor Ambode for this achievement. Our Speaker, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa also deserves commendation as well as Honourable Oluyinka Ogundimu. The Pen Cinema Bridge came as a result of a motion passed by Obasa led House of Assembly and to the glory of God, Hon Ogundimu moved the motion for the construction of the bridge on the floor of the House. Both the Speaker and Hon Ogundimu are good representatives of Agege," the Agege LG Chairman said.
Corroborating his colleague, Hon Babatunde, described the Lagos Assembly Speaker, Obasa and Ogundimu as true and worthy representatives of Agege.
"The construction of the Pen Cinema Bridge is a confirmation of their worthy representation. Hon Ogundimu moved the motion for the construction of the bridge on the floor of the House. Governor Ambode has done well for us in Agege for commencing the construction of the bridge," he said.
Both Egunjobi and Babatunde agreed that the construction of the Pen Cinema Bridge, the already commissioned Abule Egba Bridge, several completed and ongoing road projects in Agege and other infrastructure are clear evidence the true representation of the people by their representatives.
They commended the state House of Assembly under the leadership of Rt. Hon. Obasa for initiating the Constituency Stakeholders Meeting noting that it has bridged communication gap between the people and their representatives.
