Members of the Road Transport Employers Association in the Ojuelegba branch of Lagos State said they are relieved with their relocation to a new park created for them by the majority leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.
The Lagos state government evicted the transporters from their Ojuelegba under bridge park, as part of the Ambode government’s Beautification of Lagos Project .
Inaugurating the park, which is named after him, Gbajabiamila urged members of the association to put it into good use, and to shun acts that could undermine peace.
Gbajabiamila commended the RTEAN for the support they had given him over the years and the actualisation of the project.
“You have always supported me and I think our relationship started years back.
“I am part of you and I thank you for the opportunity given to me to serve you,” he said.
The Majority Leader said he was able to facilitate the new park after several interventionist missions to the state government, which led to its approval.
He described the chairman of the association as a committed leader who never joked with the progress of the group.
Gbajabiamila promised to continue to work with RTEAN for the progress of the association and betterment of its members.
