He said that the long term impact of road construction included inter-communal integration, exchange of commerce as well as socio-cultural relationships.
“For instance, as Ilara-Mokin and Ikota are now bound together by road, you will see more inter-community development, better understanding and intermarriages between the two communities.
“My recommendation is that more individuals, who have to give, should emulate Chief Ade-Ojo by investing in this kind of communal roads which are local government roads.
“Three months ago, when he came to invite me for this programme, I did not know how extensive what he had done in road intervention in this part of the state was.
“But, what I saw here today is worthy of commendation and emulation by other well-meaning individuals.
“Government certainly has a role to play, but every organisation and individual, I believe, should come out to invest in infrastructure, because it is going to take everybody’s contribution to build our country,” Mr Fasola said.
Earlier, in his address, Mr Ade-Ojo, who had expressed happiness at the successful completion of the project, called on people to always strive to do something unique to raise the status of their communities.
Mr Ade-Ojo is the Chairman of Toyota Nigeria Limited.
