“Is this what we voted for, Buhari and APC had failed us. Look at our road, it’s so flooded, we can hardly move,” lamented one of the motorists that spoke with Reference Daily News reporter.

The axis of Akowonjo-Egbeda, Lagos State was flooded that it was so difficult for the motorist to pass, after the rain of early Thursday.

The Obantoko area in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State was not left out of the flood and severely lamented at the negligence of the APC led administration.

Our reporters had some interaction with some of the motorist and resident of these areas. Many of them regretted voting in Buhari and his party into power and are ready to vote them out in the coming election in 2023.

A motorist named Alao Babatunde said, “What’s the function of the local government chairman, and counsellor? If you go to their offices, the roads there are also bad. They’re only after money, embezzling tax paid by citizens. They can’t think of a solution to the mishaps the people are facing.”

Another man, one of the passenger names, Chinedu Mark, said, “the people led themselves into this menace, some people sold their votes for N10,000. So they don’t care if they’re suffering. They already sold their good future.”

One of the traders, Yemisi Okanlawon, beg the APC led administration to come to their rescue as many of their products often go with the flood. So, we want them to create drainage for the water to find his way.

Another student who refused to mention his name said, “I couldn’t go to school because I fell inside the water and was wet. The water smells so mad. Buhari and Sanwo-Olu should come to our aid.”

However, our correspondent put a call through to residents in Obantoko, Abeokuta, Ogun State. One of them is a lecturer in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta but ask that her details be kept private.

She said, the Obantoko road leads to Ibadan, Oyo state and it’s a route to a Federal University and a federal college of education. This road has been bad for more than 20 years now when I was still an undergraduate until today nothing has been done.

We’re always stuck in traffic when going and coming back from school for more than 2 hours. We hope this administration will find something to do it as soon as possible.
