The Ogun State Government has assured of adequate compensation to the owners of structures that could be demolished by the ongoing green Ogun project, aimed at creating set back along Lagos-Ibadan Express Way, for ease of traffic.

The Chairman ‘’Green Ogun’’ team and Commissioner for Forestry, Chief Kolawole Lawal, made this know during an interactive session with stakeholders at OPIC house Isheri in Ifo Local Government Area of the State.

Lawal said ‘’those who have building approvals for their structures may be compensated’’, while those who had built illegally would have their buildings demolished in line with the government stance on doing things right.

The Chairman said apart from beautifying the road, other amenities such as rest points for commuters in between journeys, trailer parks and pedestrian bridges would be constructed to forestall the knotty gridlock and incessant motor accidents that characterized the road.
