Badagry residents lament poor infrastructure

The Nation reports that residents of Badagry have decried the epileptic electricity supply and deplorable roads. They urged government to increase its developmental projects in the area.

At a sensitisation programme organised by the Public Advice Centre, Lagos State Ministry of Justice, Secretary to the Royal Council and Baale of Yafin, Chief Abiodun Patinvoh called for construction of fences in public schools, good road network, among others, The Nation reports.

“Apart from the need for government to employ more qualified teachers in our schools, we also want the government to build fences in the public primary and secondary schools in Badagry. Most of the schools here especially in my area do not have fences to protect them. The people also need constant electricity supply and good roads to make life easier,” he said.

The Nation reports that another resident, Prince Emmanuel Kotti, also condemned infrastructural deficit in the area.

He said: “Badagry has a good historical record. It is a fact that the first storey building was built in this place. Badagry also served as a point of contact and entry for the missionaries when they came to Nigeria. But despite all these commendable historical records, I still wonder why the same area does not have constant electricity supply.”

PAC Director Mrs Tola Akinsanya said the centre serves as the first port of call for residents in distress, saying “those whose rights have been violated and those seeking information on their rights and responsibilities,” she said.

Akinsanya said plans were on to establish PAC office in Badagry.

He urged residents to take advantage of free service of the centre to lodge complaints and seek information.
