Lagosians Protest Bad Road As Ambode Revels With International Football Stars



Lagosians living along the Mile 2 – Badagry Expressway on Monday took to the streets to protest the insensitivity of the Lagos and Federal Governments to their plight occasioned by the state of the road. The protest came after the outgoing governor of the state, Akiwunmi Ambode reveled over the weekend with former international football stars who flooded the state for a testimonial football match for the outgoing governor.

The protesters who ignored the heavy morning downpour to pour out their frustrations called on the incoming governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to address their plight.

The demonstrators who came under the aegis of “Fix Lagos-Badagry Expressway Now Mass Movement” carried different placards with some bearing inscriptions such as Enough is Enough, We are also tax payers, No Retreat No Surrender.

They said that the demonstration was to draw attention of President

Muhammedu Buhari and the Lagos State Governor-elect, Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s to the difficulties of those living in that axis of Lagos.

They urged the incoming governor to consider the road as a top priority once he comes to power.

The demonstration by the members came as the outgoing governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode who abandoned the road reveled with international former football stars as part of his testimonial of four years.
