Benin-ore Trap Called Road by AloyEmeka5: 1:43am On Sep 14, 2010
Travellers Trapped On Benin-Ore Road

Travellers were trapped in the rain for several hours last weekend on the failed portions of Benin-Ore road.
Users of the road usually face nightmarish experience following the failure of the Federal Government to fix it. It gets worse during the rainy season.
Motorists and travellers who were heading to their various states in the east got stuck on the highway last Thursday and Friday when desperate interstate bus drivers who drove against traffic to avoid the bad spots blocked one another on both sides of the busy highway.


•Travellers trapped on Benin-Ore highway for several hours at the weekend. Story on pg.6. PHOTOS: David Odey.

A traveller, who gave his name simply as Agbor, regretted travelling by road, adding that he would have travelled by air from Lagos to Calabar, and taken a bus from there to his home town in Ogoja, Cross River State.
Other travellers expressed similar regret and wondered why Nigerians should be subjected to such harrowing experience by their leaders.
Some of those trapped said the latest situation was a child’s play compared to what they experience during the Christmas rush in December whereby they spend 24 hours or more on the spots.

They fixed the road but some 'winsh' came and chop the road. Give me money to organize prayers and 6 day fasting for the road to be better; lol.

I'll find it hard to believe any Nigerian government has actually done something for its people until this road is fixed. That road represents all that is wrong with Nigeria - Who cares about the people!

@wesley80,

I passed tha road in 2006, it was that bad, 2007, eben worse, 2008 unbelievable, but guess what, that is probably the most important road in the whole country and it has been that bad for close to 5yrs.

This is why, nigerians really have a stack choice come this election, they must use thier heads to pick somene who has a clue. this is just a very visual representation of the state of nigeria. The Hospitals are not better, what about the schools
