Residents of Onajimi and Ajiun streets in Bariga Local Council Development Area of LagosÂ State, South West Nigeria, have condemned non performance of the council representingÂ them in the council, wondering why he should continue to stay in office.
They complained mostly about the roads which are in terrible condition and now almostÂ impassable.
According to the people, the drainage channels on both sides of the roads are blockedÂ with refuse and other particles while they have not been cleared once in several years.
The water channels, they said are so filled up that they can no longer retain water whichÂ now spills on the roads, one of the causes for their deplorable condition.
They accused the councillor of reneging on his electoral promises, vowing that if he isÂ fielded again in the next election, they may have to vote for the opposition party.
They, however, exonerated the council chairman, Akeem Sulaimon, of all blames over theÂ condition of the roads, saying if he had been prodded by the councillor, the roads wouldÂ have been given a face lift as done to others within the council area.
