The Akran of Badagry, De Aholu Menu-Toyi I, said the Lagos Council of Obas would soon meet Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode over the deplorable state of the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.

Menu-Toyi I utter that the deplorable state of the road had retarded the growth of the ancient city and movement of people.

The monarch said that the council had decided to pay a visit to the governor in order to hasten work on the ongoing road construction between Mile 2 and Okokomaiko. “I am not happy with the state of the road. Lagos-Badagry Expressway is an international road, which is supposed to be the responsibility of Federal Government, but it has been abandoned.

The Bridge, which was built in 1901 is one of three bridges connecting Lagos Island to the mainland, the other are the Third Mainland and Eko bridges. At the time of its construction, this was the only bridge connection between the mainland and Lagos Island. The bridge starts from Iddo on the mainland and ends at Idumota area of Lagos Island. The bridge was named after Sir Gilbert Thomas Carter, a former Governor of the Colony of Lagos. The Carter Bridge was originally constructed by the British colonial government, prior to Nigerian independence in 1960.
After independence, the bridge was dismantled, redesigned and rebuilt during late 1970s. The Alaka-Ijora flyover, on the Iddo end of the span was completed in 1973.

Lagos Monarch, Akiolu Endorses Buhari, Ambode For Second Term

The Oba of Lagos, His Royal Majesty, Rilwan Osuolale Akiolu, has called on Nigerians, particularly Lagosians, to ensure the return of President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
The Lagos monarch made the appeal to Lagos electorate, yesterday, in his palace when Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures paid him a courtesy visit in the course of their quarterly meeting in Lagos.
Oba Akiolu said the appeal was informed by the excellent performance of elected officials in the course of carrying out their duties. “They have done well. And going by their performances during the few years that they have been saddled with the leadership positions, they have shown to all and sundry that they can do more if given the opportunity again,” he said.
The Lagos monarch further advised politicians to work for the interest and welfare of Nigerians.

Macaulay was a great socialite; he electrified the social life in Lagos before what Echeruo called the ‘death’ of the peculiarly Victorian Lagos society at the end of the last century. He was a regular feature at the numerous ‘at home’, Conversaziones’, concerts, shows etc, that were part of the Lagos society. It was in this milieu that he came to acknowledge the gift that was to stand him in good stead during his quarrel with the government over the Eleko- his remarkable genius for organizing things and people.
Macaulay and Carr share the distinction of being the greatest bibliophiles in Nigerian history. No one can possibly write about Lagos history and politics without consulting the thousands of files collected by Macaulay on just about every subject in Lagos history. He was known as ‘the wizard of Kirsten Hall’ because of his ability to obtain classified information’s which he used to devastating effect. His network of informants would be the envy of modern intelligence service. He paid handsomely for this but his real asset was that those who gave him information genuinely believed that he would use it in the national interest.
