Motorists and other road users plying Adekunle Fajuyi Street in GRA, Ikeja, Lagos,Â South West Nigeria, have complained about the terrible state of the road.
One of them, James Okechukwu, a commercial motorcyclist, complained that theÂ terrible state of the road has posed a nuisance to those plying it frequently.
According to him, One of them, â€œI stared working around here since February thisÂ year and this place that has now become so big was a small pothole at that time, butÂ due to neglect, it has made the road almost impassable.â€
The most affected part of the road which is in front of the Federal RadioÂ Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) Training School, is causing great obstruction toÂ traffic as vehicles have to stop for one another to avoid getting trapped in theÂ ditch.
A staff of Choice FM, a local radio station in the area, who craved anonymity, toldÂ Lagos Bulletin that the defected portion has been announced severally on the localÂ station to the state government and other agencies concerned, but still waiting toÂ see when it will be repaired.
It is observed that motorists plying the road at peak periods of the day faceÂ serious traffic, while many vehicles have been damaged in the bad spot.
