One of the largest roundabout in West Africa is found in Benue state of Nigeria, located in the middle of Otukpo Local Government Area in the state. With all the pride of been the food basket of the nation, Benue boast of a state that has no good road network.
Enugu Roundabout in Otukpo Local Government is one of the largest roundabout in west Africa but has become a death trap, many have lost their lives using the road, the state of the roundabout could put tears in the face of a true Nigerian. Many vehicles, truck have been damage due to the state and nature of the roundabout, many truck drivers have complaint bitterly and they are still complaining.
This so called Enugu Roundabout is the major roundabout connecting many states together in Nigeria. I asked some drivers about their experience using the road, An Idoma commercial driver who refused his name on print was rather aggressive in his reaction as he confronted me with all manner of questions in pidgin English.
“If I don die for this bad road, you for dey ask me this kind question? (If I were deceased by now in an accident on this road, would you be asking me my experience on this route?)” he queried.
Without mentioning names many drivers accused the leaders for the bad nature of the roundabout and plead that the government should help complete the project they promised earlier this year.
Many have turn the road into commercial business as the road enables them to trade, below are some pictures from the roundabout this morning
As you have seen for yourself, please share it, together we can make Nigeria better in our own way.
