Some motorists along the Akure and the Ikere area of Ekiti state have lamented the terrible state of the road.
Speaking with Legit.ng, the road users said Ondo and Ekiti states and the federal government have abandoned them to their plight and as a result, they have lost hope that the road will be repaired.
A driver who simply identified himself as Deji said waking up to face the road on a daily basis is sickening.
"We have a terrible road right from Akure to Ikere. It is surprising that despite the fact that we have the ruling party governing these two states, that road is a disgrace. A journey of an hour will last for three hours because of a bad road."

Another road user who refused to give her name because of security issues said that Governors Fayemi and Akeredolu should be ashamed of themselves over the terrible state of the road.
Noting the fact that the two governors are close to the power at the centre, the road user said the people in the area should not be going through such challenges to access the road.
Recall that some time ago, Rivers state governor Nyesom Wike, during a visit to Ekiti lamented the state of the road to Fayemi.
