The Bridge stands... at least for now.

Contrary to the news spreading, the Third Mainland Bridge has not collapsed. The traffic jam was caused by an accident, which LASTMA has now cleared. Please go about your daily activities. Anouncement by the Lagos State Government. Long Live Lagos!

The above is a paraphrasing of what I heard on the Lagos State Radio Service (streaming) at about 1452hrs BST. The bridge lives on, if only for a few days.

We're very good..No!...Nigeria is very good at patching things up. I pray we don't live to see the day the bridge actually caves in. And it will too, if nothing is done sooner. I remember being in the 'go slow' on that bridge every morning on my way to school for 3 years. It won't be funny. Mehn, i hope Tinubu et al listen to the masses on this one o!
