For the significant part of two days precisely on November 8 and 9 2017, which were a mixture of inspection of ongoing and unveiling of completed projects, also featured the inauguration of a 45-member Community Relations Committee in Badagry designed to forestall any incidence of environmental degradation, communal disputes and civil disturbances often associated with oil producing areas.

The first point of call on Wednesday was the premises of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, where Governor Akinwunmi Ambode inaugurated a new access road designed to permanently remove difficulties associated with accessing medical care faster during emergencies. The road, which is an alternative access road, connects the premises of LASUTH from Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way and Medical Road in Ikeja.

Ambode, who also inspected the progress of work on the LASUTH Maternity Hospital popularly known as Ayinke House which started in January 2016, ordered contractors handling the project to work day and night to deliver it within the next six months.
