Why Are Road Built Without Sidewalks In Nigeria? by Carboom: 10:49pm On Jun 28, 2015
This is extremely annoying and I just can't stand it anymore. Even in Abuja which is supposedly the best planned city in the country there are no proper sidewalks. Was driving today and saw people running in mud while it was raining. This is supposed to be a developed city. What a shame. In developed countries, sidewalks take precedence over roads. Sometimes sidewalks are even wider than the roads(I'm talking about sidewalks that are suitable for even disabled people, eg people in wheelchairs). In Nigeria even pedestrian bridges are built without sidewalks. So you come down from a pedestrian bridge and step into mud. It shows absolute disrespect for the masses since the majority of them are pedestrians and not car owners. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed this. Instead of beating up each other our lawmakers should push bills that would make it illegal to build roads without PROPER sidewalks.

Use the 'Gutter' or enter 'Okada',

This is Nigeria - not New York,

It is a shame!!The state of our roads and the huge amount of money that has gone down the drain for construction of low quality roads. In some cases no road at all,no government presence. Edo state,Benin city is the worst of all.the roads in benin are crying for government intervention.upper sakpoba,upper adesua,upper mission,ugbor link roads,all the roads in bdpa, ugbor ~amagba road G.R.A, evareke,igun road,ugbor village road e.t.c

OSHOMOLE,the people of edo needs u,we want u to construct our roads. E.g Ugbor amagba road in picture
