A concerned Nigerian citizen recently took members of the internet community by surprise with his rather ingenious method of calling the attention of the authorities to some expansive potholes in his area.
The man, identified as Adedunmade - who is also a lawyer by profession - shared a series of photos on popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, in which the potholes were captured alongside some plastic bottles of cola beverages placed at their edges.
Sharing the post, Adedunmade called on his followers to join him in celebrating the lives of the three large dents in the road.
"Please join me in celebrating the life of these 3 wonderful potholes in front of Zenith Bank, Kudirat Abiola Way, Alausa, Ikeja. They keep getting bigger and deeper every day," he said.

Reacting to the post, some other concerned citizens expressed their worry over the state of the road and wondered if the government would heed Adedunmade’s call.

According to reports, Sereno, who was fed up of several potholes that lined the Kansas City streets, threw a birthday party for a 3-month-old pothole and even went the extra mile by throwing in a slice of cake with a candle on the top.
