To a reasonable extent, but I believe it added to the landmark of the state.

No matter how many good infrastructure Lagos puts up, they will quickly deteriorate under the weight of overpopulation.

The FG should work towards creating more commercial cities so that people can have options to go those places to trade or work. That's how economies grow!

Yes it is a public project but it needs to be maintained hence the toll. I don't think the toll was instituted for cost recovery purpose other than ensure maintenance of the bridge.

I hope they've started its maintenance not that in 5 years we will need to close it down for 6 months to maintain it.

While I agree with you that the cost may have been over - inflated, but comparing the cost with that elsewhere may not really give the correct value. The steel roads and bars needs to be imported into Nigeria and cleared at a cost. If your comparison is in a country where the steel rods and bars are not subject to importation, then the cost of the same length of bridge would be cheaper.
