They just started cleaning today because Macron is in town and would most likely go through this road.
Basically we as citizens are not entirely entitled to clean roads. The real Lagos island is an eye sore in terms of sanitation. pic.twitter.com/X3YXJNfxNA

So because French president Emmanuel Macron is coming to the Afrika Shrine tomorrow, the Lagos State Government have decided to work on the road a day to his visit… #Naija! @AFRIKASHRINE@Gidi_Trafficpic.twitter.com/wME4fFkgrK

This Lagos overnight road construction for Macron’s visit is reminiscent of children in primary/secondary school doing assignment a day before submission, or Uni students rushing to do project at the end of sem, or a worker rushing a report in the office..

How the same roads i take daily has become a first world road in 48hours is proof that our leaders can perform when the stakes are high. It means if 15 macrons can visit 15 areas in Lagos state every road problems in those 15 areas can fixed in 48hours. #thisisNigeria
