While lending his voice to the call for the overhead bridge to be constructed, Makinde said that the implementation of Agege-Ifako Model City Plan would go a long way in taking care of his constituents.

“I have met with the governor on the Agege-Ifako Model City Planand, and he has given me his assurance. Lagos State government has been working hard to meet the yearnings of the people,” he said.
