In Lagos: Gov. Sanwo-Olu under fire over terrible roads

A cross-section of Lagos residents have berated the State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over the terrible condition of roads in the State.

They wondered why Sanwo-Olu has not taken any major step towards addressing the bad roads in the state, despite his campaign promises.

Reacting to the anger by Lagosians, Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, assured that the governor was working “round the clock” to ensure that Lagos works.

Akosile assured that Sanwo-Olu would embark on road construction across the state after the raining season.

In a tweet, Akosile wrote: “Gov @jidesanwoolu is working round the clock to ensure that Lagos works. He has achieved cleaner environment, improved security, health, bursary, etc. He will embark on aggressive road constructions/repairs but this can only be done effectively after the rains. Pls bear with us.”

However, tweets gathered by DAILY POST on Lagosians venting their anger on the governor read below:

@Osi_Suave: “Not Making an Excuse for Sanwoolu, but the roads have always been bad. He resumed in May and we are in October but we see the Lagos state Public works dept fixing roads everyday. We are 17m people living in the smallest state in Nigeria. 17m is the population of some countries.”

@Osi_Suave: “Cos as small as Lagos is. You cant shutdown the smallest highway or inner road for construction and not expect chaos. Before I start complaining about Sanwoolu I’d give him 1 year.”

@OlaseniOladejo: “This is the same thing Sanwoolu has been telling himself in Lagos. And you can fix a road during the raining season. There’s massive work going on all around Apapa, Lagos Ibadan Expressway and other places.”

@theofficialFEMI: “2months into his first term, you could tell Fashola had a sense of purpose. Oh! He took over in May too just like SanwoOlu.”

@theofficialFEMI: “It’s funny when you people make excuses for lagos state govt. We’ve had the same party running lagos since 1999 and I’m not sure they’ve built up to 20 new roads from the scratch. They cant even maintain the existing roads. SanwoOlu took over from his fellow party man.”

@nawtiebukky: “LAGOSIANS: 100 days in Office! We are not seeing him and/or his works! Independence Month! Nowhere to be found! Where is Sanwoolu??”(Dailypost)
