Similarly, a motorist, Babatunde Emmanuel said the road at 2nd Avenue near kilimangaro is a source of worry to residents plying the it.
“This is how we suffer every day. Government should rehabilitate the road because we cannot continue with the pains we go through on this road,” he said.
“Not only that, I have a car, but I find it difficult to pass through this area because of the condition of the road and as you can see, there is no passenger here because no one will like to stay here and wait for a taxi,” he added.
One of the traders, Goodluck Osinachi also lamented over the poor condition of the road, saying the condition of the road is a threat to residents plying the area.
“This road, as the condition remains now, did not get worse overnight, it started gradually before it has come to this stage. This road is one of the busiest roads in Gwarinpa, leaving it like this is very bad,” he said.
He revealed that on several occasions, the traders have reported the issue to the FHA authorities but despite their promises, nothing positive has happened.
Meanwhile, residents of Mpape, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have appealed to the FCT Administration to dualise the road that connects the satellite town to the city. Some of the residents who spoke with our reporter said it is unfortunate that Mpape borders Maitama, a highbrow area of the city with well-paved roads, but it lacks good roads.
One of the residents, Wilfred Udoh noted that the dualisation of the road would improve the socio-economic development of the area and by extension, the quality of lives of the people.
Eleojo John, who also lives in the area believes that the dualisation of the road would forestall the incessant crashes that usually occur on the road during the rainy season.
He also called on the authorities responsible for the sanitization of the capital city to come to the aid of the road users as traders always prevent the free flow of traffic. “Our road is so terrible, with the rain falling these past weeks, it is now made worse,” he added.
