    it is great that they acknowledge the fact that the roads need repair. but i am not very impressed with how Lagos does its repairs and of course the building if new roads.

    look at the repairs done on the third mainland bridge; that’s beautiful! it seems the federal government does a better job than the LASG. what is the point in repairing a road and months latter, it gets dilapidated again? if what they are doing in the picture is what they are truely doing on ground, them i am not impressed.
