11. The road has forever remained "inconclusive".
Every government would always have a reason to spend billions on that road even when the previous government had also spent billions yet it will always be remain a work in progress.

SW is locked down for PMB. if you are not comfortable with it, u can use the lagoon.

Pigs should vote for their candidate and let Omoluabi vote for their candidate.

You are not telling us how PDP started milking us with the expansion project running in the budget from 2003 till 2015. How the expansion took them 13 years with 100 of billions down the drain for a projected that was started and completed in just 3 years in 1975-78. Just like that of second niger bridge . we will never forget so soon.
