The Lagos Badagry International Expressway Deplorable Conditions Photo Highlights
28 October 2020
Between Okoafo and Agbara. This is the current condition of the Lagos Badagry International Expressway in Nigeria. This picture was taken following a visit by UVOBPI representative to inspect the condition of the roads.
In March 28 2019, UVOB visited the rehabilitation site on the Badagry Lagos Expressway at Atura/ Mowo (the location visited is between Atura bus stop and Age-Mowo bus stop, Olorunda Local Council Development Area Badagry). Everyone met on the construction site looked genuine and was very welcoming. Following a brief introduction of UVOB's aims and mission, UVOB articulated that Badagrians want to know the state of work in progress and how soon it will come to completion so as to alleviate the suffering they encounter every day on the road.
Lagos-Badagry Expressway Oct 2012
Lagos-Badagry expressway is one and the only
international roads that links Nigeria with several other West African nations,
in the likes of Benin republic, Togo, Ghana, Cote D’voire and several other
West African Nation. The road has been constructed since 1979 by Gen. Olusegun
Obasanjo Military administration and since then, no significant rehabilitation
has been done on the road. The present demoralizing state of the road for the
past seven years, without any proper attention from the Federal Government who
is ostensibly responsible for the road.

Tuesday, 28 June 2016, UVOBPI interviewed the Aholu of Ajido Kingdom, Aholu Saheed Sedonu Adamson, The Aholu of Ajido Kingdom. Topon Toyiaga 1.
Extract from the interview!
UVOBPI: What are your views on fostering unity and attracting development in Ajido and across Badagry?
AHOLU: My intention is to work with other Kings in Badagry Local Government possibly within Lagos State to promote unity, to promote development, to promote progress among the community. To foster unity among us. To ensure that we do things in accordance with the law of the land so that whatever we do, whatever we set our programme on we see ourselves in Badagry as one, Egun speaking people and Awori speaking people. For me I don’t like discrimination, I always look at us as a Lagosian working for the common good of our people. That is how I want to foster unity among the Obas and among the people in the community.

On the 27th July 2013, United Voice of Badagry People Initiative attended the inauguration ceremony following an invitation from the Baale of Araromi-Ale, Chief Temitope Adele Agemo.
UVOBPI asked the Baale of Araromi-Ale about his plans for youth empowerment and development in the community, to this the Baale of Araromi stated, “I had a discussion with some of the youths of the community yesterday [26th July 2013], because I don’t want people to brand them with bad names. I have also decided to call a meeting where every youth in the community will be given the chance to voice out their neglect. We will engage all our jobless youths because we believe that the idle hand will turn to the devil’s workshop. I believe God will see us through.”
Earlier in June 2016, a ceremony was held at Ikoga Town Hall, Ikoga-Zebbe, Badagry Local Government Area officially inaugurating and registering Gle-Vivi (Ikoga) Agricultural Co-Operative Multi-Purpose Society at the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives. UVOBPI used this opportunity to encourage Badagry’s youths to engage in farming.
