But because Ghanaian president John Dramani Mahama is visiting Offa (where he grew up) today, the government went ahead to grade (levelling) the road so he can have a bumpy-less ride.
That road has been impassable for years. But the shameless political elite want to hide our national shame from the visiting president.
In nutshell, Nigerians who have been suffering daily on this important road for over three years do not matter.
President Mahama must have a jolly ride, but Nigerians can go to hell via hellish Ajase-Offa road.
