These are photos of the Oshodi Transport Interchange, Oshodi, Lagos.
It was commissioned yesterday by President Mohammadu Buhari.
These photos were taken earlier today.
Clearly, the construction of this interchange is far from being completed.
Which begs the questions: what is the rationale for commissioning a project that is nowhere close to its completion?
Why is Governor Akinwunmi Ambode desperate to enjoy the credit for this project?
Was President Buhari not aware that the construction of this project was still ongoing?
While we were there, some Lagosians who we discussed with expressed anger and disappointment at the apparent deceit.
According to them, some roads that were opened and motorable yesterday to make the environment appear appealing have all been closed as construction works continued this morning.
Again, what is the point in all these haste in commissioning an ongoing project?
This reminds us of the Ikeja bus terminal which remains non-functional as construction is still ongoing one year after it was also commissioned by President Mohammadu Buhari.
Is it safe to say that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode successfully pulled the wool over the President’s eyes twice?
