Though, the road project has commenced from Ipakodo but we want the governor to as matter of urgency award the contract up to its completion stage and also ensure that it is extended into Igbogbo town.”
The Bishop who also complained that the state of the road into Igbogbo has caused serious damage to his jeep and vehicles of many other residents added jokingly that the governor should be responsible for the replacement of his jeep.
“The terrible state of the road has caused serious damages to my vehicle (jeep) and likewise many others. We want the governor to remember us and help rehabilitate the road quickly. Since it is the road that caused damage to my jeep, I am also appealing to the Governor to replace my jeep with brand new one. I am a Bishop and that is what befit my status” Bishop Mofunlewi
To HRM Oba Kabiru Shotobi, the Ayangbure of Ikorodu, Bishop Mofunlewi urged the royal father to use his position in stopping the menace of the land speculators, cultists and other criminalities which are giving Ikorodu bad image.

Sir, I want you to do everything within your means to stop the issue of ‘Ajagungbales’, cultism and other cases of criminalities that is affecting Ikorodu’s image. You should order your Baales to stop involving themselves in land matters. I know you can address all these problems because God has given you the authority” said the Bishop.
