All that glitters is not gold is a well-known saying, meaning that not everything that looks precious or true turns out to be so. This rightly applies to some road on Lekki Phase One in Lagos State, Southwest, Nigeria.

At the mention of Lekki, Nigerians strongly believe that you are in the rich people’s zone but even the rich also cry when they have to travel on bad roads.
