The Lagos State government under the leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has carried out repairs on several roads across the state in order to eradicate the heavy traffic the Center of Excellence is infamous for.


The Governor personally inspects road projects in the state

Sanwo-Olu noted that potholes contribute to the traffic gridlock as drivers try to dodge them – leading to obstruction of free vehicle movements. In some cases, motorists are forced to slow down while driving through potholes in order not to damage their vehicles. In addition to these, bad roads also pose a threat to human lives as accidents could occur in the process of cars swerving.


The new roads will ease traffic in the area
