Motorists and commuters who make use of the Apongbon bridge on a daily basis haveÂ commended Governor Fashola for listening to their plight and rehabilitating the dangerousÂ spot on the bridge.
They had earlier complained of the experience they go through on theÂ bridge, which hasÂ caused them a lot of psychological trauma and damaged their vehicles. Several accidentsÂ have been recorded as a result of the undulating surface of the bridge.
Some of the motorists and commuters who spoke with P.M.NEWS described Governor Fashola asÂ a listening governor worth emulating for his leadership quality and his readiness toÂ serve.
According to Mr. Jude Okwudili, a resident of Surulere who works on Lagos Island, â€œforÂ now, there is no comparison to Governor Fasholaâ€™s style of governance in Lagos State.
â€œWe can only continue to pray to God to continue to guide and protect him to enable himÂ serve humanity. I lost my Subaru car at Apongbon bridge as a result of an accident causedÂ by the undulating surface of the bridge. My vehicle was thrown up several times and itÂ eventually crashed on the side of the bridge during which the chassis was damaged.
â€œNow, the bridge is not only smooth, the usual heavy traffic has disappeared,” he added.
