Lagos state Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has awarded contracts for the construction of three pedestrian bridges to link four riverine communities in Ojo Local Government area of the state.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Temidayo Erinle, made the disclosure during a meeting of stakeholders held at Itogbesa.

Represented by the Director, Project Planning and Design in the Ministry, Engr.
