The first flyover bridge in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital constructed by the Ayodele Fayose administration, the first of its kind since the state was created in 1996.
The bridge which was commissioned by former President, Goodluck Jonathan, and said to worth billions of naira is already cracking open.
A recent photo of the few months old bridge was shared by on Twitter by social media commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi. According Mr Ogundamisi, Mr Fayose should fix the bridge immediately or refer the contractor to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for probe. He also stated that the bridge has been closed.
