Lagos State Residents Lament Over Poor State of Roads, See Photos.
A particular community in the city of Lagos has been lamenting over the poor state of linked and access roads in the community. The residents and commuters in Mafoluku in Oshodi/Isolo Local Government Area (LGA) have decried the poor state of roads in their neighbourhood, especially Mafoluku Road, which links the community Oshodi market.
With potholes and craters, especially at Ayoni Bus Stop, on the Mafoluku Road, commuting on the road has become a nemesis for motorists and commuters in the community.
When it rains, plying the route becomes a nightmare for commercial drivers, who complain of frequent breakdown of their vehicles.

Commercial motorcycle operators, popularly known as (Okada), and tricycle operators, sometimes fall into the drainages because of the bad road, while residents find it difficult to bring their vehicles home daily, especially whenever it rains.
A commercial bus driver in the area, Akinsegun Sunday, who has been plying Mafoluku-Oshodi route for 18 years, said the deplorable state of the road is constantly damaging his vehicle as he visits mechanic workshops every week for repairs.

He said: The pothole is affecting us. If you buy a new bus today, it will not last up to five years before it will be damaged because of the deplorable road.
The government should come to our aid to repair the road. In the past 18 years, government officials only came to patch it and the last time they came was in 2019. The road needs to be reconstructed. It will go a long way in improving the lives of people in the area.
We have complained to government officials on several occasions, but they have not done anything to assist us. Sometimes, we apply self-help by putting stones and gravel on the road, but they are easily washed away.
