Akute: We Have Deserted Our Houses Because The Roads Are Unbearable, Residents Write In

So residents of Akute through one of them have written in to say the condition of roads leading into the community is murder and has cost them nothing than heartaches and repairs of their cars all the time due to the state of these roads. Below is what they wrote in by one of their representatives who is also a landlord. What however touched us in the mail is that, they said most of them who are house owners have had to let-out their private houses to get apartments in towns which have good roads. That to us is extremely sad. We hope the government looks into their matter. The mail after the cut.

I own property in Akute which is a border town between Lagos & Ogun state but I've had to re-locate & lease out the property cos the roads there are murder. It’s gotten so bad that several other people are also relocating & property value there is dropping/diminishing by the minute....Soon only animals will live within the confines of that area as the roads cannot be said to be passable by humans anymore. God only knows how much people spend on fixing their cars daily.

The current administration started constructing bridges which they have currently abandoned but the irony of the bridges being constructed is that it has been abandoned leaving residents with roads that are death traps. We wondered why un-tarred roads leading into Lagos & its environs could not be fixed first before embarking on building bridges.

Attached are pix of the current state of the roads. Amusingly, pix 1 to 3 were actually tarred by the Otunba Gbenga Daniels' administration sometime in 2002 but they didn't last 6 months after the shady job they did & looking @ the pix you'll never believe it was ever touched...

Pix 1 - 3 is actually called Ishashi road which leads straight to Ojodu-Berger whilst pix 4 - 6 is known as Alagbole road & you can see the abandoned bridge project which has been like that since July last year.

  7. So true! I stay in this area and I plead with the Lagos state and Ogun state government to join forces to finish up this road, since its the border between Lagos and Ogun state, they should please tar it all the way to Ojodu-Berger. Thanks.

  18. All the roads leading to Akute are terribly bad. These pictures didn't do justice to this road. I wonder how wicked our government is subjecting its citizen to this type of hardship.
