I remember being in Rivers state weeks ago, on Wike's hundredth day in office. Radio stations were abuzz with phone calls from indigenes, the satisfied and dissatisfied alike. Some were calling for Governor Wike's head; It's been 100 days in office and we've yet to see any substantial thing he has done. In truth, some admitted that while there were signs of his presence, he should have achieved more by now.
Now this makes me wonder about my own state of residence. It's being much longer than those 100 days and I'm left with a feeling similar to one you get after eating a much anticipated plate of your favourite meal and realizing that for some reason your belly is hollow and still empty. And no, this isn't because he was allegedly at Quilox nightclub boogying it down a few nights ago.
I see okada riders plying express roads with reckless abandon and astounding impunity. Heavy duty vehicles are still roaming the roads at all hours and trailers are falling. It seems it's goodbye to the respect formerly accorded to BRT as any vehicle is allowed to ride on its lanes. I see no road works being done and the roads are actually getting worse by the hour. I don't know if I've been out of Lagos so much in the last for months that I've missed the "workings" of our Governor, or if they're just not there!
It's for this reason I'm asking you Lagosians/residents of Lagos (before someone points out to me that I'm not a Lagosian), if you're feeling Ambode's impact yet? If you were to assess him, perhaps write his report card, based on your observation of him in his months in office, what would it read like?
