    You see what a government looks like?? Lagos state truly trailing the blaze.. Not really a big deal but no other state government would have provided such info.. Always good to have professionals at the helm versus the stupid useless federal government.. BTW Lagos state has more functional traffic lights than does Abuja.. SMH!!

      but we must learn to make our comments as informed people and not motor park folks. Having used stupid useless to describe the federal government, what does that make you. What government looks like my left foot, do you follow other activities in other states to make sure that folks are not properly informed of happenings, or did i hear such road use announcements when they organized their rallies in the island. Please get civilized and moreso does this announcement help in anyway to reduce the untold hardship commuters are going to face today cos even when all roads functions well, lagosians still spend productive hours on the road.
      Oh on the traffic lights situation the one in my surulere area gives a clashing command, so please enough with this comparison.

    I’m simply to sleepy to countenance what they have said. I applaud their efforts at ‘sanity’ today but I also know that my poor soul is not attempting to go home till tomorrow. Will crash at someone’s house till mornning. I just bought fuel and the sleep deprivation from a week of getting home at unholy hours due to traffic is too much. I don’t want to die on the road, I no yet find husband biko.

      Ha..ha…ha….There are a lot of single men in those traffic jams. I encourage people stuck in traffic jams to get out of their cars and mingle!
