Ijesha is a community in Surulere. It is under Ikate LCDA which is also under the Surulere Local government. Some part of it also falls under Mushin LGA.
Ijesha has a link road which is the Ijesha-Itire Road, the road is currently in a bad shape. Last week, some people were seen doing de-silting of the drainage channels, but that is just a temporary solution. The water has eaten deep into the road leading to potholes, sometimes impeding traffic.

Some of the Inner roads in the Ijesha community are completely in a state of disrepair, road such as Aguntasholo street are completely in bad shape. Imam Thani street before the ongoing construction was in a bad shape for long making it completely unusable. Even now, work on the Imam Thani street is tardy, residents claimed that the necessary finances needed to bolster the work has not been released, the reason for the slow pace of work.
One of the community leaders pointing to the Ijesha market which is also in a bad shape laments that the government has abandoned Ijesha.
YMonitor will be having a grassroots engagement with the community leaders in Ijesha to have a conversation on what they have done so far to draw the attention of government to the challenges faced in Ijesha.
