Residents and motorists in Ijagemo community in Ojo Council of Lagos State have lamented the deplorable state of roads in the area and its attendant hardship on the people.
When The Guardian visited the area recently, from Ijegun Bus Stop down to Ijagemo community, the roads were dotted with wide and deep potholes.
The state of the roads has become a serious challenge for motorists, motorcyclists and residents. Anytime it rains, the road is usually flooded, making them difficult for cars, buses and motorcycles to ply.
Residents complained bitterly that the bad roads were affecting their businesses and livelihood in different ways. A resident of Oyedokun Street, Barakat Ajao, said the lack of proper drainage has caused a lot of chaos and affecting the health and wellbeing of the people. (Guardian)
