Many commuters who live in the Ajah axis of Lagos State were left stranded on Monday due to heavy traffic.
The commuters who took to Twitter to share their ordeals, said they found it difficult getting to work due to heavy traffic from Ajah towards Victoria Island.
The complaints saw Ajah trending on Twitter in Nigeria.
The traffic started building up early, with those who left home at 5am, claiming they were still in the traffic at 7:00am and were nowhere close to Lekki.
Videos shared online, showed the extent of the traffic. Some commuters resorted to trekking to meet up with resumption time.
Writing on Twitter, @jeffbarnes360 said, “To think I’ve been up since 5am just to get to work and I’ve been in Ajah traffic for over 2hrs. I want to know what people really enjoy living on this island. Only one access road from Lekki. Nawa oo.”
Another Twitter user, @CHLemchi, also added, “Ajah traffic this morning is absolute bonkers. I left home by 6:45am. I just got to VI – 10:15am. If I was driving to Owerri to see my parents (like I often do), I would have crossed Benin bypass now. It is criminal for government to turn a blind eye to what we’re going through.”
“The traffic congestion in Ajah this morning is something else. Nah to reach work 12pm today @jidesanwoolu Nice one,” @oo_Jemimah also posted.
