A resident, Cmion said, “This flooding happens every year in Lagos. Every damn year, what the hell is the government doing to curb it, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.”

Econ Intelligence also wrote: “ALERT: The area of Iyana-Oworo and Olopo meji on the route to 3rd Mainland Bridge, Lagos is currently experiencing severe flooding this morning, resulting in heavy traffic congestion that stretches all the way to Alapere. Temporary avoid the area and make use of alternative routes

However, another resident, Olu mentioned that the driveway of the bridge is not flooded as trended

He wrote: “The driveway of the 3rd Mainland Bridge was not flooded underneath adjacent link roads blocked with floods and traffic jams.”

“I can’t imagine driving through Ilupeju axis right now. I know it will be flooded. Let me just take another route,” another resident, Alao Abiodun, mentioned

Owing to this predicament, Nigerian internet users on X have taken to trending “Dear HR,” with numerous employees claiming they would email the head of the HR department to inform them that they would be unable to report to work.

“Dear Line Manager (not HR),Lagos is a mess right now. Traffic is unfriendly and weather is inclement. 

Please show some kindness today. Work from home is a credible alternative for days like this. Wet Regards,” Faseun Yemi wrote
