The Oreta-Offin road, expected to be completed within a year, commenced construction three months ago. During the inspection, Rep. Benson urged contractors to hasten the process while minimizing disruptions. He also emphasized the need for local job creation.

Simultaneously, Rep. Benson commissioned the Ori-Okuta road in Ikorodu West LCDA.

Furthermore, Dr. Nurudeen Yekinni Agbaje, Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Rural Development, commended Rep. Benson for his transformative efforts during the commissioning of the Ori-Okuta road construction. Dr. Agbaje detailed Rep. Benson’s dedication to improving road infrastructure, aligning his efforts with the Lagos State government’s agenda to elevate rural areas to semi-urban standards.

The Special Adviser explains, “With about 57 successful road construction under his belt, Rep. Benson’s numerous infrastructural initiative aims to boost economic activities, enhance connectivity, and improve the quality of life for residents in these areas”.
Rep. Benson’s work in the Ikorodu division has garnered widespread recognition, with the Ori-Okuta road construction being one of the many projects that reflect his commitment to infrastructure development.
“His achievements in road infrastructure stand as a model of effective governance and community-focused development,” He added
