"Conditions - good/bad" - are there any formal criteria defining these two?
(it can't be just paved vs. unpaved with a rise of "good" that sharp within a period of only 2 yrs)

Repairing/paving 10.000+ kilometers of road in just 2 years seems just impossible.

just based of observation alone, a lot of roads in the country have been repaired/or newly built....i can say there is a difference between 5 years ago and this year in terms of driving in good roads in the country. I'll do more research into the legitimacy of these stats tho

Good to see this happening. When observations are being made easier from office it can save a lot of hours on on-site work especially as long as the situation does not change rapidly. Though I'm concerned about the roll-out of streetview in the whole nation: likely it will be very hard to expand north of Abuja. Not because of the lack of roads but more because of security reasons. The same reason Google hasn't hit the Aceh roads yet and it's Arab coverage is limited to the UAE.

But as Senegal and Ghana in the region have it as well, this is a big step in the good direction.

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!
