Ambode Left Agege-Pen Cinema Bridge At 20% Completion, Says Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Friday, said the Agege-Pen Cinema Bridge was at 20% completion when he took over the wheel of governance from his predecessor, Akinwumi Ambode, in May 2019.


Ambode, who started the 1.4 kilometre-long bridge in 2017, was conspicuously absent when Sanwo-Olu; All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu; and other prominent politicians inaugurated the Agege-Pen Cinema Bridge on Friday.


Ambode lost his re-election bid in 2019 due to intra-party wrangling in the APC within the state. Ambode has not also been seen at any state function with Sanwo-Olu or Tinubu since he exited government in May 2019.


Tweeting via his verified handle on Friday, Sanwo-Olu wrote, “In line with our Strategic Transport Master Plan, I commissioned the 1.4 km dual carriage Pen Cinema Flyover Bridge and Ramp with 5 adjoining network of roads today.


“It was great to stand before Lagosians to celebrate the delivery of this landmark project, which reflects our administration’s belief in the principle of continuity in governance.


“When our administration was inaugurated, this project was at about 20% completion stage.


“With the delivery of this bridge, which is complemented with traffic signalisation and drainage channels, we have resolved the perennial traffic arising from huge human and vehicular movement from Agege-Pen Cinema Intersection towards Abule Egba, Fagba, Oke Koto and Iyana Ipaja.”
