 ENUGU COMMENCES 'MANSION BUS STOP' CONSTRUCTION 


Despite public outcry, the government of Enugu State through the Enugu Capital Territory Development Agency (ECTDA) has commenced the building of bus stops around the city metropolis, a project many residents regard as a white elephant project.


Recall that the agency announced this project to replace the old bus stops that were destroyed by hoodlums during the malicious unrest that followed the #Endsars peaceful protests. 


The post on twitter by the agency's official handle attracted a lot of condemnation from Enugu residents who complained about pot holes littering the city that require immediate intervention but are being ignored to build very unnecessary structures as bus stops. 


They argued that even the old bus stops were not habitable for commuters due to its complete repossession by beggars and mentally unstable people in the city. They didn't see the sense in building these 'mansions' that won't be maintained or used for it's purpose.


Most of the contributors supported the repair or replacement of the old bus stops as it is more sensible, easy to maintain, and economical. 


Below are reactions from twitter users on ECTDA official handle after they announced the project.
