A video has gone viral on social media capturing the moment Governor Godwin Obaseki’s convoy encountered difficulties on a flooded road in the state. The incident occurred on Saturday, July 22, after heavy rainfall caused the road to become submerged in floodwater.
Residents filmed the governor’s entourage struggling to find a way to pass, as the entire area was trapped in traffic due to the flooding. The video prompted criticisms from the public, calling out Obaseki and other politicians for their failure to address infrastructural development, particularly the poor state of the roads that have been left unattended for an extended period.
Social media users expressed their frustration at the situation, highlighting the irony of the governor being affected by the same bad road that the government has neglected to fix. The incident brought attention to the urgent need for better infrastructure and flood management in the state.
