Video: “Ghettorization” Of The Poor People Of Lagos: Ayobo-Ipaja Road 12 Years Waiting!

Lagos State is witnessing some positive ‘transformation’ but not so for the those resident in poor areas, the “deodorization” of the upper class areas is met with a corresponding “ghettorization” of the poor areas.

The people of Ayobo-Ipaja now claim the Lagos state government is turning them into “wretched of the earth”. Ayobo-Ipaja road is just one out of the many unreported abandoned roads in Lagos. From the failed promise of 8 years by the government of Bola Tinubu and then almost   4 Years of Lagos “wonder” Governor Babatunde Fashola. The people of Alimosho now resort to “spiritual intervention” hoping some day the government will remember THEY ARE STILL PART OF LAGOS.
