Gentlemen,

Federal Government has awarded contract for the reconstruction of the road. However, the failed parts are being rehabilitated, so i am sure lagos-benin will soon be 4 hours, as it used to.

Guy, i am talking based on the fact that i think i have the current time-frame than you. my girlfriend traveled to kwara from Lagos, they left the park around (Ojota) around 10:24am, got to Kwara around 6:00pm. that's roughly 7hours journey, when she was coming back on Sunday, it was the same, she left kwara around 9:40am and got to Lagos around 5:15pm, so i know what i am talking about.

Lagos to Benin is within 4-5hours and Lagos to Kwara is within 6-7hours. so you can try going on a more current journey, then come here and tell us if it's lesser or higher

you are acting on hearsay, am telling fact. used to shuttle that axis while i was in the country last. this is as recent as august.

never spent more than 4hrs.

cept there is hold up along iwo road axis. even then there are alternative routes through the city.

haba. 7hrs ke?

bullocks.

I think there is some confusion here. Do you pass through Benin while going to Kwara? I

heard there is no road btw Ore and Benin. That there is always a loooooooooooooooong queue of vehices caused by the cars trying to negotiate through gullies on the road. Infact the way the story went it won't take you less than 9hrs to get to Onitsha. I know Onitsha is about 2hrs from Benin(that road is good), so i think am going with the guy that says 7hrs to Benin. But mind you i said not less than 9hrs to Onitsha, which means it could be more.

Mr man, stop lying, a person just came back from Kwara yesterday, when she was going, it took her closed to 7 hours, when she was coming, it was 7 hours plus, so what are you trying to say here? if kwara is 4 hours journey, how many hours would Benin be?

Driving from Lagos to Benin is an average of 5 hours and traveling to kwara is 7 hours. (FACT)

I heard it takes 2days to get to most parts of east from Lagos now. Like someone said the airlines are making a kill from this. Was planning on driving to east with a couple of friends but with what i've heard, won't try it. Heard the state of the road is good bad enough to reck a jeep.

IF you are unfortunatete to boad a vehicle carrying contradbands goods it takes up 10hrs cos the police will stop the driver to 1k in check point. plus the valley on the road. pls note: (not port holes but valley) so be careful

the road is slated for construction year 2020 according the 7 point agenda.

That's why i asked what kind of transportation means he's talking about. if it's a Carmen kind of vehicle, then it's possible, but Edegbe and co won't stay on the road for 7 hours lailai except something happens.

Bro, stop lying please, it's what i know that i am talking about. on a normal day, it's 4 hours, but when there's a program going on either at Ansa rudeen prayer ground, mountain of fire or redeem, that's when it gets to like 5-6 hours, but 7 hours on a normal day is a lie

Travellling to Benin from Lagos takes about 7 hours. Of course i meant by car. Cant you decipher this from the previous post.

It still takes about 7 hours to get to Benin from Lagos. I doubt if they will fix that road pretty soon. The airlines are smiling to the Banks, as a result of this.
