In a move towards ensuring efficient road maintenance in the state, the Lagos State Public Works Corporation (LSPWC) has recruited 105 artisans to boost its operations.
The General Manager of the agency, Mr Ayotunde Sodeinde, disclosed during an interactive session with the newly recruited workers at the agency’s office in Ojodu-Berger that the decision to employ new workers was part of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s drive to continuously alleviate the suffering of Lagosians by creating job opportunities for the unemployed youths.
He also said the decision was aimed at meeting the target of maintaining additional 189 roads before December 31, to add to the 282 roads the agency had already maintained and rehabilitated since the inception of the present administration.
Sodeinde added that the zeal to step up the agency’s operational strategy necessitated the employment of additional 105 people to complement the efforts of the already existing workforce.
“This effort from the corporation will further strengthen the presence of government road maintenance activities in all the 20 Local Government Areas and 37 Local Council Development Authority in the state,” he said.
According to him, the employment of the artisans drawn from each local council area takes effect from December 1, 2015.
He assured that with the increase in the number of gangs in the corporation’s employ, Lagosians will experience a more efficient service, saying the five divisions of Lagos State will be touched.
